Title Ezra Clark, page 030
Description 30 EZRA THOMPSON CLARK called to help settle the "Muddy," a district one hundred miles west of St. George in Nevada. By furnishing a team and supplies, Mr. Clark was privileged to allow another person to go in his place. He fitted out his sister's son, Ezra Dougherty. The first team was stolen by the Indians. An- other was sent and additional provisions were supplied. The mission was abandoned by order of President Young because of excessive taxes in the Territory of Nevada. The counsel given Ezra Clark by President Young to enter the principle of plural marriage was observed in 1861. The emigrants who left England the twenty-third of April of that year arrived in Salt Lake Valley September 21. Among them was Miss Susan Leggett, whose name Ezra saw in the newspaper with the names of other immi- grants. While on a mission in England five years previ- ously, he and William Budge made the acquaintance of the Leggett family and enjoyed their hospitality. These missionaries were the first to take the gospel to the Leggett home. Ezra's second wife, Susan, had a very practical education. She was a seamstress by trade, and did not go to school after her twelfth birthday, although she was fond of books and often read them going to and from her work. She was fond of poetry and sometimes wrote lines of it when in- spired by experiences that came to her. She and her father were members of the village choir of which he was a member for twenty years. Ezra and Susan had many interests in common although their childhood homes were very different. He had been to what Susan called "dear old England" and knew of the green rolling hills of her native land. He had made friends among her acquaintances there. He knew her kind father
