| || Notes for COLIN MCKENZIE CLARK:|
lived at Scotland Neck,NC at "Albin".From Miss Lena H. Smith's 10/5/29 unsourced newspaper article "Albin", she says:
"Of Mr. and Mrs. Colin Clark I have only a faint recollection.. They were indoor people and so were pale, white hair, and in summer both dressed in white.When they strolled around the grove at twilight they children insisted that they were ghosts. Mrs. Clark's maiden name was Bond.She owned a famous set of diamonds - pin, earrings, necklace, bracelet, and ring. It was a well known fact she had intended them for a bridal gift to her nephew's (Mr. W.R. Bond) bride. But she died without a will, and her diamonds went to another branch of the family..... Mr. Colin Clark gave the land and built the first Baptist Church in Scotland Neck, where Trinity Church rectory now stands.He planted a row of china berry trees from his house to the present line of the town. Mrs. Clark's nephew, the late Mr. W.R. Bond made his home with them, and after their death the home place came to him, where he and his wife, Lizzie Hall, and her nephew, W.L. Hall made a happy home for many years.The place now belongs to Mrs. Arrington Kitchin, who hasa handsome modern home where this old landmark once stood.The Clarks are resting in the grave yard in the garden.The Bonds were moved from this grave yard to Old Trinity Church cemetery.
