Obituary ~ M. J. Clark
Decatur County Journal
Leon, Decatur County, Iowa
March 24, 1892
M.J. CLARK, who has made his home with W.R. CLARK, of this place, for the past two years, died of consumption last Wednesday, at the age of 39 years. The remains were interred in the Leon Cemetery on Thursday.
MR. CLARK was one of the smallest men in Iowa. At the time of his death, he weighed but a little over 40 pounds. He had been a race rider since boyhood, which was the cause of his miniature stature.
