Interested in anyone researching Council Clark, & Council Hooten. Council Clark was a witness on a marriage record of my Great Great Grandparents: Council Hooten and Matilda Clark in 4Sept. 1843, in Warren Co., MS.
Council Clark and probably brother William Clark, & Council Hooten were living in Lenoir Co., NC in the 1820 Census of Lenoir Co., along with Reuben Clark, Jethro Clark, Isaac Clark on the same Census page. By 1850 Council Clark, and William Clark were living in Yazhoo Co., MS. Matilda is not listed, but by 1850 she and her husband Council Hooten are back in Lenoir Co, NC.
I am assuming that Reuben Clark may have been their father, but can't prove this.
