THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1911.
PASSING OF CAPTAIN CLARK
The death of Captain Clark at his
home In Buffalo, Iowa, yesterday, re- j
moves the etrongeet human link that '
had united this community with its
earliest days of settlement by the t
white man. i
The C larks came here before the
Black Hawk war. Sept. 15, 1832, the
treaty had been signed on the site of
the city of Davenport, by General
Winfield Scott on the one side and
Chief Keokuk and other Indian chiefs
on the other, by which the Sacs and
Foxes ceded to the United States
about 6,000,000 acres. This was the
famous Black Hawk purchase, and in
the following spring, about the time
the treaty was ratified by congress.
Captain Clark, thn a 11 year-old boy, 1
went across to Buffalo with his par
ents, and helped his father bui'.d the j
cabin and plant the first crop of corn
that a white man had ever grown in 1

which the Clark family happened to
come to Rock Island. It was the orig

"Life during 1S27. 1S2S and 1S29 was
vexed by many obstacles. The first
of these three years I spent in sight
of Davenport, with occasional trips
across the river. I remember well
when there was no white family on
the Iowa side. The next year, 1S23.
trade opened with the Indians across
the river. A buck came over and
wanted to sell a pony. My father
went to the Iowa side, taking me with
him, and bought the pony.
"Do you ask how the Indian deliv

took a rawhide lasso, tied it around
the pony's neck, and the Indian paa

to do so, and the pony swam where he
could not walk. The 6pot of starting

Captain Warner Lewis Clark was
born on the Wabash river, near Mt.
Carmel, Wabash county, Illinois, Nov.
14, 1S22. His father was BeDjamin
"Warren Clark, and his mother Mary
Beard Clark. At his birth, his mother
died, and her mother cared for the
babe until after 1824, when the father
married Miss Celia Gabbert of Ken
tucky. They soon afterward removed
to Fort Edwards, Hancock county, Illi

Rosedale cemetery there.

through the kindness of his staunch

"Later my father's family came and
built a hewn log house at the creek,
at the west end of Andalusia, in the
fall of 1832. The logs used now form
the west half of Henry Springmeier's
residence at Buffalo, having been trans
ported on ice (we really had ice in
those days, when the old river was
unspoiled by the hands of men).

engaged him to come up the river and
cut some wild hay. The family was
brought along on the trip, and remain
ed here from that time on. Captain
Clark remembers distinctly when his
father carried him from the gang
plank of the small river steamer, on
which the trip was made, and placed
him down on the shore in the midst
of a crowd of 1C0 Indians, who had
gathered to see the boat land.
When the Clark family lived on what
is now Sylvan water, in the vicinity of
the Cable residence, the Sacs and
Foxes in the fall, before starting out
on their hunting expeditions, would
take their canoes around from Rock
river, and, filling them with stones,
sink them in the slough near the
cabin. This was done to hide them
so the Winnebagoes, whom the cap
tain describes as a thieving tribe,
could not find them and take them
away. The canoes were usually made
of walnut logs hollowed out with fire.
Occasionally a birch bark canoe from
the north was found among them.
WERE THRIFTY TRIBE.
The Sacs and Foxes were Industrious,
for Indians, and usually provident.
From the Clark cabin to the mouth of
Rock river was a cultivated field in
which the squaws raised "squaw" corn,
beans, etc. Until a few years ago. In
the unbroken pastures, Captain Clark
stated he could find the hills in which
the corn was planted, the ground be
ing ridged up In working it. When
the tribe went away on a hunt, the
greatest precautions were taken to
prevent the Winnebagoes from getting
the corn and beans that had been har
vested. To save this precious supply,
it was placed In sacks woven from the
bark of the linn or basswood tree.
Then hoies four or five deep deep were
dug in the ground, leaves were placed
in the bottom, and the sacks were put
in. This was then covered with more
leaves, brush and grass to keep the
water from reaching the grain, then
a thin layer of earth was placed on it
and more leaves were scattered, the

bore great crops, having few of the
enemies that the fruit nowadays has
to contend with.
