This site: (www.clarkcemetery.org) is the Official Clark Cemetery Association Site dedicated to the memory, preservation and history of our family members interred at Clark Cemetery in Parker County, Texas.
Its companion site, Clark Cemetery Association History Site (www.clarkcemeteryhistory.org) makes the memory of ancestors and pioneers of the area vivid through photos, biographical sketches, and stories. See the history pages on this site and links to biographical sketches of founding pioneers under History>Early Ancestors above. A brief history of Clark Cemetery is provided on this site. See highlights of the Marker Celebration too.
A Texas Historic Cemetery, Clark Cemetery was officially declared an historic cemetery in Texas by the Texas Historical Commission (THC) on February 16, 2011 and its Official Dedication from THC was recorded in the same month. The THC and the Clark Cemetery Association, along with members and guests, celebrated its Historic Marker Dedication on October 12, 2013.

This site was put together explicitly for our family members because this is a private cemetery of those family members who are all descendants of the pioneers who helped tame and settle Parker County.
