  • Notes 
    • I stumbled on this yesterday. I believe the Benjamin Clarke below was
      the son of Thomas Clarke and Julian Mudd. He died about 1733. but his estate was still being settled in 1739. His older brother was Luke
      Clarke who according to will of John Clarke who died abt 1727 Luke
      Clarke was deceased. Luke Clarke died sometime after 1725 and before
      1727.
