(Brown) Clark. whose grandfathers served in the Revolutionary war, and was born at Comstock's, Washington county, N. Y., April 5. 1848. When sixteen years of age he found himself dependent upon his own efforts for a livelihood with only the education which district and the Union school had given him. He was first engaged as a telegraph operator for five years, afterward as train dispatcher of the Harlem Extension Railroad Company at Bennington, Vt., and then in the slate manufacturing business. In 1877 he was appointed a bank examiner for the State of New York. In 1883 Mr. Clark came to Buffalo and entered upon his present duties as the first secretary of the Buffalo Loan, Trust and Safe Deposit Company, of which he is also a trustee. He has won his way to the responsible position he now holds and to the high esteem of his fellow citizens, by his own efforts.
