Clark, Thomas (2)

Clark, Thomas (2), an Associate Reformed minister, graduated at the University of Glasgow. In 1745 and 1746 he did faithful service in the army. According to the practice of the day, he pursued a thorough course of medical study in the university. He met with the Associate Burgher Synod at Stirling, in 1747; and was ordained and installed over the congregation of Ballybay, Ireland, July 23, 1751. While preaching here he was taken prisoner for his views respecting the oath of allegiance, but converted the jail-keeper and was discharged. He came to America about 1765, and was the first Burgher minister in this country. He preached in Salem, Mass., for several years, then in the South, where he did much good; and finally in Abbeville, S. C., where he died, Dec. 25, 1793. See Sprague, Annals of the Amer. Pulpit, IX,
