Title Ezra Clark, page 002
Description 2 EZRA THOMPSON CLARK Ezra, was born June 25, 1817. The family moved north to Peoria in 1824, and to Ottawa in 1825; later to Plainsfield, about forty miles west of Chicago. Timothy Baldwin Clark, Ezra's father, started the first stage line in the district. It ran from Chicago to Ottawa, through Plainsfield. Ezra Clark's grandfather was a soldier of the Revolu- tion, and his own father, Timothy Baldwin Clark, was a soldier in the War of 1812 and also enlisted in the Black Hawk War. On page 697 of Armstrong's History of that border conflict with the Indians, the names of Timothv Baldwin Clark and three sons are recorded as having served in that campaign. Their company was stationed at Fort Dearborn. Here Timothy, being a carpenter, built the first frame residence in the little lake port, which later be- came the city of Chicago. For him, Clark Street in that city is named. His grandson, William M. Cooper, was the first white child born in Chicago. John Cooper, one of the com- pany and the husband to Timothy's daughter, Rhoda, put up a tent outside of the fortification, which was the baby's first home. Abraham Lincoln was a captain in an Illinois company in that campaign. Black Hawk was captured in Wisconsin and signed a treaty whereby he surrendered to the United States government a large tract of land. Later he remarked: "Little did I think when I touched the goosequill, that I was signing away the graves of my fathers." After the settlement was made, the Clark family moved back to Plainsfield and the boys went to school for the first time. William 0. Clark's biography says that the school lasted three months. It was the only opportunity of the kind that ever came to Ezra, although his mother taught her children at home.
