He and his wife, Elizabeth Campbell, daughter of John and Catherine Laprade Campbell, had nine children, ca. 1800-ca. 1818. The family migrated from Pittsylvania County, Virginia, to Greene County, Illinois. Their grandson, Peter Franklin Clark (1829-1919) was born in Greene County, Illinois. He traveled to California to prospect for gold in 1850, but returned home to Missouri. He married Margaret Jane Marsh (1830-1900) in 1852 in Lawrence County, Missouri. They had four children, 1853-1865, born at Mt. Vernon, Missouri. He again traveled west during the Civil War as a member of the Union Army.
