Oscar Powell Clark was born October 2, 1856 in Bentonville at the old Eagle House Hotel which his father had built in 1847. He was the son of James Washington and Jane Dickson Clark, who were among the earliest and most prominent pioneer settlers of Benton county and Bentonville. As a young man he joined the M.E. Church, South, his father having in an earlier day donated the ground where the church now stands, as well as the public school ground and the cemetery. Mr. Clark was married to Carrie Lee Robinson October 11, 1881 in Bentonville where they lived most of the time until 1906 when they moved to Rogers. To this union were born two children, Mrs. J.M. Traylor and Beryl Clark. Mr. Clark was a true Christian gentleman and during his residence in Bentonville he served for several years as the faithful Sunday School superintendent. After coming to Rogers he taught a class of boys in the Sunday School and served on the Board of Stewards of Central Methodist church. Mr. Clark died December 5, 1928 at the home of his daughter, Mrs. J.M. Traylor, at Sapulpa, Okla. where he had been visiting for the last six weeks. He had been in ill health for some time but it was only the day before his death that his condition was considered serious. He is survived by his wife, his two daughters, Mrs. Traylor and Miss Beryl of Rogers, four granddaughters and two grandsons, all of Sapulpa; also by two brothers, Charles T. and Carson E. Clark, both of Neosho, Mo. Mr. Clark was a Mason and a member of the Modern Woodmen. Funeral services were conducted by Rev. J.A. Womack, pastor of Central Methodist church of Rogers, assisted by Rev. R.S. Hayden, pastor of the Bentonville church, Thursday afternoon at 4:00 o'clock at the M.E. Church, South in Bentonville, followed by the burial services at the Bentonville cemetery which were conducted by the Masonic order. Among those who were present at the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. J.M. Traylor and family, Mr. and Mrs. John Sheffield and Cecil Moore, all from Sapulpa, Okla.; Charles T. Clark and Carson Clark, both of Neosho, Mo. and Dr. W.P. Robinson, C.M.
