    Notes 
    • According to the 1900 census, he immigrated in 1860. More likely he immigrated earlier, however, since the 1865 NYState census says that all of his children, including the oldest, were born in New York state. So, he seems to have immigrated by 1855. He does not seem to appear in the 1860 US census in New York State. This puts him at the start of or just prior to the potato famine years in Ireland.

      He appears in Wheatland Twp. in the 1865 NYState census, aged 50. He and his wife Catherine (no maiden named mentioned) were born in Ireland, and James is marked as Naturalized. All of their children are listed as born in Monroe County, including daughter “Ann J.” (Honora), aged 10. Other children in the household are Thomas (8), Bridget (6), Maria (4), James (3) and Peter (1).

      He was, it is said, a “builder of bridges during the Civil War.” There was a James Clark who served in the 50th New York Engineers, originally organized at Elmira; this one had a middle initial "C." There was a James C. Clark living in Genesee county in the 1860 census, but married to Augusta Clark, so I don't think this is the same one.

      The censuses in 1870 and 1880 again place this family in Wheatland, a bit west of their Post Office in Scottsville, New York, in Monroe County south of Rochester. Pictures of this family show Oatka Creek, on which folks used to go boating, with a paper mill and a blacksmith shop identified next to the creek. Oatka Creek is now a public park near Scottsville. I assume the park was near the house, and available close by for family outings. It was possible for boats to transit from the Genesee Valley Canal to the Creek at one point via a lock.

      In 1905, in the NYState census, he was living on Main Street in Wheatland with his son James, a butcher, and daughter Anna, doing housework.
