Clarke, Ivory

Clarke, Ivory, a Baptist missionary, was born at North Berwick, Me. and graduated from Waterville College in 1834, and from the Newton Theological Institution in 1837. He was appointed a missionary April 3, 1837, and sailed the latter part of that year for Africa. For seven years he resided at Bexlevy Liberia, and for three years at Edina, engaged in preaching, looking after the interests of the mission schools, translating a part of the New Test., and making a dictionary of the Bass- language. In order to recruit his wasted energies he sailed for America April 6, 1848, but died at sea eight days afterwards. (J. C. S.)
