Grave of Harvey Clark

Title

Grave of Harvey Clark

Description

Photo of the gravestone of Harvey Clark, an early Oregon pioneer and missionary. A white obelisk rises from a square white block placed on a larger concrete block. The name 'Clarke' is incised on the stone block; faded but legibly carved on the obelisk is the following: 'Rev Harvey Clarke. Born in Vermont, Oct. 2, 1807. Died March 24, 1858.' The correct spelling is 'Clark' though the 'Clarke' misspelling is common in manuscripts and books on the subject.
