Thomas March Clark

CLARK, Thomas March, P. E. bishop, born in Newburyport, Massachusetts, 4 July, 1812. He was graduated at Yale in 1831, studied theology at Princeton, and in 1835 was licensed to preach in the Presbyterian church, Newburyport, Massachusetts. Soon after, he applied for orders in the Episcopal church, and was ordained deacon by Bishop Griswold, in Boston, Massachusetts, in February, 1836, and priest in November of the same year. He was chosen to be reeler of Grace church, Boston, and held that place for seven years. In 1843 he accepted the rectorship of St. Andrew's church, Philadelphia, but a few years later became assistant minister of Trinity church, Boston. Thence he removed to Hartford, Connecticut, where he became rector of Christ church, and continued in that place until his election to the episcopate. He was consecrated the second bishop of Rhode Island, in Grace church, Providence, 6 December, 1854, and for twelve years, in addition to his episcopal duties, served this church as its rector. Besides numerous charges, sermons, and addresses, Bishop Clark has published "Lectures to Young Men on the Formation of Character" (1852); "The Efficient Sunday-School Teacher" ; and "Primary Truths of Religion" (1869).--His brother, Ru-fns Wheelwright, clergyman, born in Newburyport, Massachusetts, 17 December, 1813; died in Nantucket, Massachusetts, 9 August, 1886, was graduated at Yale in 1838, and studied theology at Andover, and at the Yale seminary, where he was graduated in 1841. He was ordained 7 January, 1842, and became pastor of the 2d Presbyterian church in Washington, District of Columbia After holding pastorates in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, East Boston, Massachusetts, and Brooklyn, New York, he took charge of the 1st Dutch Reformed church in Albany, New York, where he remained till his death. The University of New York gave him the degree of D. D. in 1862. Dr. Clark was widely known as a pulpit orator, and was the author of about 130 books, pamphlets, reviews, and articles. His works include " Lectures to Young Men" (2 vols., Washington, 1842); "Review of Moses Stuart's Pamphlet on Slavery" (1850); "Memoir of Rev. John E. Emerson" (BosCLARK 631 ton, 1851; abridged ed., 1852); "Heaven and its Scriptural Emblems" (1853); "Life Scenes of the Messiah" and " Romanism in America" (1854); "The African Slave-Trade" (1860); "Heroes of Albany" (Albany, 1867); "The Bible and the School Fund" (Boston, 1870); and twelve volumes of Sunday-school textbooks.--Another brother, George Henry, clergyman, born in Newburyport, Massachusetts, 7 November, 1819, was graduated at Yale in 1843, and entered the ministry of the Protestant Episcopal church. He has been rector of All Saints church, Worcester, Massachusetts, of St. John's, Savannah, Georgia, and of Christ church, Hartford, Connecticut In November, 1860, he made in Savannah an appeal for the preservation of the Union, which was published at the request of southern gentlemen. His connection with St. John's parish was dissolved in 1861, and in 1862 his property, including his library, was sold by an agent of the Confederate government as the property of an "alien enemy." Trinity College gave him the degree of D. D. in 1863. Dr. Clark has published sermons and sketches.--Another brother, Samuel Adams, clergyman, born in Newburyport, Massachusetts, 27 January, 1822 ; died in Elizabeth, New Jersey, 28 January, 1875, studied theology at Andover, Alexandria, Virginia, and Litchfield, Connecticut, entered the ministry of the Protestant Episcopal church, and, after preaching in Philadelphia and in Plymouth, Massachusetts, became in 1848 rector of the Church of the Advent, Philadelphia, where he continued till 1856. He was then called to St. John's church, Elizabeth, New Jersey, where he remained till his death. Rutgers gave him the degree of D. D. in 1870. Dr. Clark was a devoted worker, genial and witty, and was very popular in his parish, where he was instrumental in building a new church, leaving it free from debt. He was elected to represent the diocese of New Jersey in two general conventions, and at the time of his death was president of the standing committee of his diocese. A tablet in his memory has been placed in St. John's church, Elizabeth, and a monument has been erected to him in Laurel Hill cemetery, Philadelphia. He published "Memoir of Albert W. Day," prefixed to Day's sermons (1846), and " History of St. John's Church, Elizabethtown, New Jersey" (Philadelphia, 1857).
