     Mr. Clark had conducted a meat market in Goshen for nineteen years, and two years ago last April disposed of the business to his son, David P. Clark.

Clark, of Middletown; also by five brothers and four sisters. They are Edward and Howell, of Johnson; William, of Middletown; B. R. Clark, of Goshen; Emmet, of Paterson; Mrs. Horace Space, of Paterson, and Mrs. William Frazier, who is a resident of the state of Washington. Seventeen grandchildren also survive.
     The funeral will be held on Sunday afternoon from his late home, at 2 o 'clock. Rev. Dr. Moser, pastor of the Methodist Church, will conduct the service, and the remains will be interred in Pittsburgh Cemetery.

[NOTE:  Jeremiah B. Clark was interred at Phillipsburgh Cemetery, Wallkill, NY. Cemetery is also known as the Wallkill Cemetery.]
