HISTORY OF EZRA THOMPSON CLARK

His family joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1835; he was baptized in 1836. The family moved to Missouri where he was a participant in the persecutions heaped upon the Saints during that time.

Leaving Missouri, his family relocated to Iowa where he grew to manhood and eventually married Mary Stevenson. He and his wife Mary had a baby in Lee County, Iowa and then began the trek westward with the pioneers. They arrived in the Salt Lake Valley in 1848, after spending an extra year in Winter Quarters.

They lived two years in the North Canyon area of Bountiful before settling in Farmington where he lived the remainder of his life. He and Mary had 11 children, including two who lived to be over 100 years of age.

Ezra Thompson Clark served five missions for The Church, including a mission to England where he became acquainted with the family of Susan Leggett, who would become his second wife and bear him 10 children.

A noted financier, Ezra was heavily involved in Church, social, political, and family activities his entire life.
