CLARKE, John T., jurist, born in Putnam county, Georgia, 12 January, 1834. He was graduated at Mercer University, Georgia, in 1853, and in 1854 began to practice law, but abandoned it, and was ordained a minister of the Baptist church in 1858. Failing health forced him to retire in 1861, and in 1863 he was appointed judge of the superior courts of the Pataula circuit, his administration was conspicuous for energy and ability. After the war he was removed from office by General George G. Meade for refusing to enforce certain military orders. His course in this matter made him very popular in his state, and in 1882 he was re-elected to the judgeship. He was an elector on the Seymour and Blair presidential ticket in 1868, and state senator in 1878. He has contributed to current literature both in prose and poetry.
