Title Ezra Clark, page 043
Description EZRA THOMPSON CLARK 43 James never broke a chain nor came home with half a load." One of the flagpoles was placed on the corner of the lot of the family residence and from its top the stars and stripes were seen on special occasions. The boys had their ponies and other pets. Among them was a huge black dog called "Cuff" because of a white strip around his neck. There was nothing Ezra enjoyed more than family re- unions. .An elaborate banquet awaited the family for many years on these occasions. A program previously arranged was the evening's entertainment. After the father's address there were expressions of gratitude from the older mem- bers of the family and always a closing hymn and prayer. He observed with keen delight any musical talent in his children or grandchildren. Some of his favorite songs which his wife, Susan, would sing at family reunions were: "When the Springtime Comes, Gentle Annie," "Hard Times Come Again No More," "The Prairie Flower," and "Evening Star." She composed and read the following lines on the sixtieth anniversary of his birth: Kind friends we bid you welcome greeting With music sweet our hearts to cheer. May all enjoy this happy meeting With mirth to drive away the tear. We meet to honor friend and father To whom this tribute is justly due- Oh, may his children ever follow In his footsteps firm and true. His labors God is surely blessing, And gladness from our hearts doth spring
