MY CLARK'S ANCESTORS
To the Forum,
My gggrandfather Anthony Clark was born in Virginia in 1815, and settle in Jefferson County Ohio. I have been trying to find other Clark's that was born in Virginia and settle in Ohio that might be related to him. I found two families in the 1870 census living in Belmont County in the township of Colerain Ohio, and two of them was born in Virginia, and I was hoping that they might be related to my Anthony Clark.
CLARK, COLE- head- male- black- age 60 born Virginia
Since there so Oliver Clark in 1846 in Ohio I assume they came to Ohio abt 1840 or earlier.
Here is the other family that I found in the 1870 census in Belmont County Ohio.
CLARK, JOHN B.-head-male- black age 30
I believe John B Clark is the son of Cole Clark.
If I can not find them in earlier or later census, how else can I find out if they are connected to my Clark's
