      Mahoning Dispatch,
      Mahoning county, Ohio
      Fri, 17 Apr 1885

      "February 10th, at his home north of this city, occurred the death of Clark Chidester, one of the best known citizens of that part of the county. Mr. Chidester was born in Portage County, O., April 14th, 1818. In his youth he moved to Canfield, where, March 2nd, 1843, he was married to Clorinda Sackett (sic), who survives him. A short time after their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Chidester removed to Trumbull County, Ohio, but again removed to Canfield. In June 1863 they removed to Illinois, and after a four year residence removed to this county, where they have since made their home. At the age of 12 years Mr. Chidester joined the Methodist Episcopal Church, but not being satisfied with his infant baptism was immersed at Ellsworth, Ohio, by Rev. Marcus, when in his 24th year. While living at Richland Grove, Ill., he and his wife both united with the Christian Church, with which denomination they continued their connection upon their removal to this county. Deceased was the father of three sons, one of whom died at Richland Grove, at the age of 3 years (sic. where was this child, Ensign Chidester, buried ??). The others, S. E. and F. G. Chidester, now reside in this county, as do also two brothers, Julius and W. N. Chidester. Deceased had lived the life of the consistent Christian. He was a kind and indulgent husband and father and a faithful friend. Devoted to his family and friends, he never sought public place of notoriety. He was a quiet, unobtrusive man, and always held an enviable place in the opinions of those with whom he associated. His remains were interred in this city on Friday last. The funeral service was conducted by elder Stevens, of the Christian Church, and the remains interred with Masonic honors."
