Orleans County, NY Biographies





Clark, Robert, was born in County Cork, Ireland, August 27, 1841, and was the youngest but one of twelve children of George and Elizabeth Clark. The family came to Rochester in 1847, where the father was a marketman and butcher. Robert learned the confectioner's trade, and in 1873 came to Albion and succeeded George Ashbey in business. By careful attention and good judgment he has succeeded in building up a 5ne trade, and his ice cream department, particularly, has met with great favor. Mr. Clark is also well known in local politics, and was twice elected supervisor of the town of Albion. He is a member of the Episcopal Church, and has served as vestryman and treasurer of that society. On August 6, 1861, Mr. Clark married Mary E. Kingston. They have had eight children, four of whom are now living.
