This beautiful old Clark family photo was found in Madison County, New York, close to Hamilton. It is a close up and intimate portrait of Alice, who has a very kind look. This is an important Eaton & Hamilton, New York family. We see no evidence of another wife for Henry Clark in all of his previous census records since 1803. We believe he married later in life and only had one wife, thus she is his first!
