Hotwater. Thereafter, he became a lifeguard for Gen. Campbell who was sick 
and had to leave the camp.  In May 1782, he volunteeredunder Capt. John 
McCittrick and went to the frontier along the Ohio River against the Shawnee 
Indians.  he was granted pension on his application executed 8 August 1832

The widow of John Clark alleged that he was in the Battle at Kings Mountain, 
Cowpens and others.  He served one tour against the Indians.  At sometime, he 
was a sergant.  While residing with her son-in-law, Coonrod Low, in Gilmer 
County, Georgia, and aged 80 years, she executed a pension application 3 June 
1853.  Eight children of the couple were then living:  Lucy, John, Sarah, 
George, William, Martha Ann, Rebecca, and Thomas.  Clark was granted 400 
acres of land by Virginia.
