This page is dedicated to my mother's Clark kindred. Both of her parents were Clarks from separate lineages. Her father, Lee Roy Clark Sr., was the son of William Sidney Clark of Montgomery, Alabama; her mother, Jessie Cleo Clark, was the daughter of a circus man named Allie Thomas Clark from Texas. To reduce confusion of the two Clark sides, I call Cleo's relatives and ancestors the "Circus Clark Kindred" and refer to Lee Roy's side as the "Montgomery Clark Kindred."
The Circus Clark Kindred contains numerous allied lineages represented by Garner, Caraway, Haley, Johnson, Pilkington, Cox and others.
The Montgomery Clark Kindred includes allied lineages represented by Thornton, Skipper, Traynum, Cumby and other surnames.
