About the Author:

W. C. and Nevada Clark were children of pioneer families that eventually found their way to the Spokane, Wash. area. Nevada (Cobb) Clark's father, Warner Cobb, was written about in the "History of the City of Spokane and Spokane County Washington" published in 1912. In 1880 he had moved his family by covered wagon (Nevada was then 1o) to Spokane area when it boasted a little trading store. She married W. C. Clark, a hopeful homesteader in 1892. His family had moved west from their origins in Sardinia, Erie County, New York. working their way across the country over the years. Mr. Clark reports being the great-grandson of two Revolutionary War soldiers, Reuben Hale and Dan Clark. While on his journey he consulted the national archives concerning these men. The Clarks eventually moved to Tennessee and later bought a newspaper in Ravenswood, WV. He and his wife operated all facets of the newspaper themselves. Their daughter evidently later worked at a newspaper in Pittsburg, and she eventually found her way to Galveston, TX, where her husband worked at the newspaper there. In the same pioneer spirit of travel the Clarks decided to take a honeymoon trip 30 years after the fact in 1922. Their original honeymoon had been curtailed due to a heavy snow storm. All the hazards and inconvenience of a 2,000 mile journey were borne in stride. While being credited with having been to all corners of the country in his lifetime, Mr. Clark and his wife made Ravenswood, WV, their final home. At the time it was a sleepy town, a small point on the map where George Washington endeavored to establish a town after surveying the area. Not long after their deaths great changes were to come to this area.
