Nelson Haldane passed along a valuable excerpt from a letter from Charles T. Clark to his daughter, Margaret Clark Castle (Nelson's grandmother), dated Feb. 12, 1911.  She was trying to discover if she was eligible for the DAR, and this is what he said on that subject:  

While less than certain about his father's date and place of birth (our records show 1820 and Carlisle, but it's good to have an alternative lead to pursue), Clark seems very definite about everything else, and we should be able to find the Goff family in Pittsfield (with less definitie information, this quest has been driving my brother crazy!), not to mention a Clark family in either Chambersburg or Carlisle, working its way up to 14 kids through the 1810, 20, and 30 census.
