Fire Insurance Record:
The fire insurance record for Clark's residence dated in 1859 and found in Pennsylvania Insurance Company showed that the front dimension of the house is 49 feet, and the depth is 41 feet. It was insured for about 10,000 dollars.


Pennsylvania Fire Insurance Company, Policy Number 18901, Philadelphia: 1859.

RESEARCH ON OWNER

The name on Bromley Atlas under the address is Mary T. Clark instead of Edward W. Clark; further research needs to be done on the relationship between these two people (whether they are from the same family or not)

Boyd's city directory of 1900 not only showed Jacob A Datz's home address, but also mentioned his company name: E W Clark & Co.

The current address for the Clark residence is 5425 Wissahickon Avenue. The house is no longer there and turned into Cloverly Park.
