    • According to 1850 CENSUS SABINE COUNTY, TEXAS WITH ADDED FAMILY INFORMATION AND CORRECTIONS by Helen Gomer Schluter and Blanche Finley Toole, Elijah Clark was the son of William Clark and Elizabeth Isaacks. Elizabeth would only have been about 14 when he was born, so it could be that William Clark had been previously married. 

      Elijah was married twice. His first wife is unknown, and his second wife was Jane Lagrone.

      In a commerative ceremony dated 2 Jun 2001, a marker reading "Texas Revolutionary War-Sabine Volunteers-Captain Collins Company-Defenders of the Republic of Texas Marker" was installed for him in Griffin Cemetery in Sabine County.
