After Malona's death, Clark and Elmira moved to Linn County, Iowa sometime after the 1870 census was taken in Astoria, Illinois in June. Records indicate he married Evalina in Iowa in 1871.

Records then indicate that Clark and Maria married on 20 Sep 1874 in Benton County, Iowa. They had no children. They were still married o
n the 1880 federal census living in Grant Twp, Linn Co, Iowa as well as on the 1885 Iowa state census.

Records show that Maria died in 1890.

We then find a record of another marriage on 19 May 1895 to Mary E Manley, a widow of a Mr. Hiler, in Center Point, Iowa. On this marriage record, Clark indicated it was his third marriage when it was actually his fourth.

By the 1900 federal census, Clark is again listed as a widower, farming in Washington Twp, Linn County, Iowa.

Clark's obituary in the Center Point Journal stated, "He had been ill for a long time and his death came not as a surprise for teh relatives and near friends." The only marriage mentioned was to Malona Walker. Their daughter, Elmira, was the only mentioned child. Both Malona and Elmira pre-desceased Clark. Funeral services were conducted in the Church of Christ.

Court records show that Oliver Heins (son-in-law) was the administrator of Clark's estate. He was survived by his son-in-law and two grandchildren, Jesse Heins and Pearl Heins.
