Below is a reproduction of a copy of a transcript of the Bible of Edwin Parsons Clark. See MySource:Jrich/Clark Notes for further information. I have not seen the original Bible. From my copy, it is impossible to distinguish what is original, and what are added notes. But clearly, some of the remarks appear to have been added later, possibly by Fannie Walker Clark (F.W.C.). Being possibly a photocopy of a photocopy, the handwriting is difficult to make out in places (indicated by "[?]")

Source:Austin, Jeannette H. Georgia Bible Records (299509) (I am looking at a reprint printed in 2002), has a Bible record of Montilla Clark on p. 210-11 which overlaps on the children of William D. Clark and Jane Mary Eliason. Discrepancies are noted next to the entry with the tag "MC:". By analysis of the differences, this transcript seems more thorough and reliable than the article. The Bible of Montilla Clark, b. 1826, also gives the children he had with wife Bettie Miller Perkins, and those interested in this family should consult this source for this additional information.
