Clark, Cornelius J., grandson of Gardner Clark, one of the pioneers of Philadelphia, and son of William Clark, a substantial citizen of Wilna, was born in Philadelphia, N. Y., July 15, 1857. His elementary education was acquired in the public schools and Mexico Academy, and in 1875 he entered Madison University, from which he was graduated in 1878. His business life in Carthage and vicinity has been devoted to milling and kindred pursuits, but Mr. Clark is otherwise known in this part of the State as an earnest and thorough Republican, interested in all that pertains to the good of his party: and as a public speaker his prominence is acknowledged throughout the region. He has been four times elected member of the board of supervisors, in the fall of 1895 he was elected to the Assembly and re-elected in 1896. Mr. Clark married Emma, only child of Dr. Nelson D. and Juliana (Stoddard) Ferguson of Carthage.
