D. L. Clark.

One hundred and sixty acres of land in Lee township pays tribute to its owner, D. L. Clark.  He was born in Greenwood county, Kansas, July 13, 1872, of the marriage of George F. and Matilda A. (Dinsmore) Clark.  His parents, who were natives respectively of New Hampshire and of Ohio, removed to Wisconsin in early manhood and womanhood and there their marriage occurred.  The father served throughout the Civil war as a member of the Fourth Wisconsin Mounted Infantry and was wounded in the left leg in the battle of Fort Hudson.  He was mustered out at Washington with the rank of captain.  Following the restoration of peace he returned to Wisconsin, but later removed with his family to Kansas, whence, in 1883, he came to Adair county, Iowa.  Later he took up his residence in North Dakota, where he proved up a claim which he later sold, subsequently removing to Westplains, Missouri, where he and his wife are still residing.  Four of their five children survive.

D. L. Clark attended the public schools in the acquirement of an education.  He was earl trained to agricultural pursuits and remained at home, giving his father the benefit of his labor, until he was thirty years of age.  He was then married and for two years rented the homestead.  He has continued to follow agricultural pursuits and in 1913 he bought the quarter section on section 26, Lee township, which he is now farming.  He raises grain to some extent but gives the greater part of his attention to stock-raising, as he finds that business profitable.  He raises all kinds of stock but specializes in the feeding of hogs for the market.

Mr. Clark married Miss Rozena E. Warrior, a native of Wisconsin and a daughter of Henry and Laura E. Warrior, further mention of whom appears elsewhere in this work.  Mrs. Clark taught school for some years previous to her marriage.

Both he and his wife belong to the Methodist Episcopal church.  As a farmer and stock-raiser Mr. Clark is progressive and efficient, as a citizen public-spirited and as a man he conforms his life to the highest ethical standards.
