    Notes 
    • From S. L. Morris--An Autobiography:

      ...one of the gentlest, most patient and Christian among women...

      My maternal grandmother, Susanna Clark Foster, was a granddaughter of Alexander Clark, who came from Pennsylvania (being one of twenty-one children), and who was a relative of General George Rogers Clark who opened up the Ohio Valley, and who is the hero of the story of "Alice of Old Vincennes." The Clarks are buried near the banks of LIttle River, on land now owned by myself. Her grandfather, Robert Foster, was a member of General Pickens' Command in the Revolutionary War. In the fight with the Tories near Patterson's Bridge on Long Cane, about five miles from my birthplace, he was killed--entitling my children to be enrolled as "Daughters of the American Revolution."
    • Tombstone:

      - mother -
      Sacred to the memory
      of
      S. C. McCASLAN
      Born June 17, 1810
      Died March 21, 1890
      Life's race well run.
      Life's crown well won.
      Life's work all done.
      Now cometh rest.
      Rest, mother, rest in quiet sleep,
      while friends in sorrow o'er
      thee weep.
