Note: Although the article says Clarke, their tombstones say CLARK – Ella F. Hall Clark 13 Jan 1863 Fountain County – 17 Sept 1941 Wingate, Montgomery County – they are buried at Greenlawn in Wingate. Sam B. 13 Aug 1863 Fountain County died Tippecanoe Co 2 Jan 1945. Thus they would have passed four more anniversaries how nifty!
