Frank and Caroline Clark

Frank Saylor Clark was born April 12, 1877, on the Clark family farm south of Madrid. His parents were Sanford Clark (1853-1894) and Florence (Householder) Clark (1855-1929). Frank was married to Caroline Boganwright (1882-1948), the daughter of John Boganwright (1851-1938) and Catherine (Lowe) Boganwright (1856-1932) on December 30, 1902. Both Frank and Caroline attended Hopkins Grove School, south of Madrid. Caroline had moved when she was very young to a farm across the road from the Clarks' farm, so when she and Frank were married, she moved across the road - where they lived most of their lives.

To Frank and Caroline's marriage were born seven children, three of whom died in infancy. John Sanford "Slim" Clark (Nov. 24, 1903- Jan. 26, 1982) and Allen B. Clark (born Jan. 12, 1908) remained in the Madrid area, and farmed most of their lives south of Madrid. A sister, Edna Marie Douglas (born Oct. 1, 1916), has also remained in the Madrid area. Another sister, Hazel B. Cramer (born Dec. 24, 1910) lives in Craftsbury, Vermont.

Frank passed away December 7, 1970.

The Clarks had five grandchildren: Merrill Eugene Clark and Nancy K. Hellickson, both of Madrid, who are the children of Allen B. and Mabel (Small) Clark; Dennis Clark Cramer, of Craftsbury, Vermont, and Patricia Marie Cramer, of Denver, Colorado, who are the children of Hazel B. and Ralph Cramer; and John Clark Douglas, of Madrid, who is the son of Louis and Marie Douglas.
