Jackson Clark

Jackson Clark was born in Fulton Co., Ill., Feb. 2, 1839, and departed this life on the evening of July 11, 1893, and was laid at rest in the Astoria cemetery. He was converted at Butlersville church on the Astoria circuit in 1873, and united with the M. E. Class at that place and lived a devoted christian life and a faithful member of the church. At the early age of ten he suffered an attack of inflammatory rheumatism, and from that time until the day of his death he never knew what it was to be free from pain. In these long, weary years of suffering he found the Grace of God all sufficient and Christ an abiding comforter. He sleeps in Jesus. Two brothers and two sisters are left to mourn his departure. But while they have lost a brother, he has gained a crown of eternal life and dwells in peace and rest at last where sorrow and pain can never come. — Rev. Kane.
