Funeral of Fred Ezra Clark Held Here Last Week.
It is written - "That time is passing rapidly, when it is not time - but you and I - who are going on."
These words were the thought of the writer of this brief sketch as he stood beside the open casket and looked upon the face of an acquaintance and friend of his youth, Fred Ezra Clark, who passed away in Benton, N. H., last week and whose remains were brought to Newbury to the home of John Goodwin, where the last rites of the church of which he was a member were conducted on Saturday afternoon by Rev. Henry S. Ives, and from thence his body was taken to the Oxbow cemetery and laid at rest with his kindred.
Fred Ezra Clark was the eighth child of Moses and Anna Kincaid Clark and was born in this town Nov. 8, 1842. His boyhood days were spent in our village and at the early age of 19 years he heard and responded to the call of Abraham Lincoln and marched away with other Newbury boys to the south land with one indomitable purpose, that our union should be preserved and that this republic should not perish from the face of the earth. Of those starting with him few are left. He recently named them and gave their ages. So many are gone that long associations with them incline the remainder to to seek them, and make those left behind less reluctant to follow those gone before, even into the chambers of death and thus it was with Ezra Clark. He was ready when the summons came.
Mr. Clark married June 14, 1865, Sarah E page of Ryegate. Three children were the result of this union, Fred D., Charles E., and Mabel, whose death occurred in infancy, while Fred passed on a dew years ago. Mrs. Clark died July 20, 1894, and on May 28, 1895, Mr. Clark married Mrs. Eva Moore, who survives him.
