William Clark was born on August 1, 1770 in Caroline County, Virginia.
All together his parents had ten children. He moved to Kentucky when he was a small boy. Clark also met and married Julia
Hancock who he met when she was 12 years old, and he decided he would marry her on her fifteenth birthday. Clark met Lewis
in the army while he was serving under him, which was only for six months. So why did Lewis pick Clark to go with him to the
expedition? We may never know. He married Julia Hancock in January 1808 after the expedition was over. Between the months
of January and August 1809 Clark and Julia had a baby. Clark decided to name him Meriwether Lewis Clark. Julia also had five
children, but died in 1820.So did his daughter Mary and his son, Julius, in childhood as well. Clark married Julia's cousin
Harriet Kennerly Radford in 1821, who had two children, one who died when he/she was less than one year old. Harriet then
died in 1831. William Clark moved to St. Louis to live with his son Meriwether Lewis Clark. Clark governed almost till his
death until he lost govern ship but he also had another job to do. He had to sort out all the papers and other things from
the expedition because Lewis had committed suicide so all the papers went to Clark. He stayed as the superintendent of Indian
Affairs until he died on September 1, 1838 in St. Louis, Missouri.
