      Ira Ethelbert Clark, a son of Freeman Clark (1773?1835) and Lydia {Ferris} Clark (1777-1870), was born in Haldimand Township, Northumberland County, Upper Canada

      Ira Clark and Jane Kirby were married on September 15th, 1830 and by 1837 they were living in West Gwillimbury Township, Simcoe County, Canada West

      They farmed at Lot 3, Concession 8 in West Gwillimbury Township, the patent for which was registered to Ira Clark in 1845. Ira and Jane quietly lived their lives on Concession 8. They retained their Quaker faith and were members of the Dunkerron Meeting of Friends

      When Jane died in 1875, Ira married secondly to Edith Rogers in 1876. He died in his 76th year, being 75 years, 1 month and 10 days of age

      The farm at Lot 3, Concession 8, was willed to son John Clark, and thereafter divided between daughters Lydia and Susan. The original farm at Lot 2 was purchased in 1876 by their son Henry Clark, who farmed the land there until his own death in 1891.
