Edward Payson Clark
Class of: 1860

We have received news of the death of Edward Payson Clark, formerly a teacher and law student in this city. He enlisted in the 6th Michigan regiment in September, 1861, and spent the winter in Baltimore with his regiment. In March he went to Ship Island; was at the capture of New Orleans, and was wounded at Vicksburg, from the effects of which he died July 15, 1862 at New Orleans. He was known here as an exemplary young man possessing many moral excellences of the highest quality. He was only 29 years old, but old enough to leave his name among the record of patriots.
