Table of contents What's This?
Lincoln Clark (1800-86) was born in the little town of Conway, Massachusetts. He attended school at Hopkins Academy in Hadley, was graduated from Amherst College in 1825, studied law in North Carolina and was admitted to the bar. Departing from usual custom, he decided to settle in the South, and in 1837 took his young bride to Alabama. They established themselves in the town of Tuscaloosa, the then state capital, where he opened a law office and also rode the circuit. Within a short time he was raised to the bench, was elected attorney general for the state, and served in the legislature.
