Thank you for the response to my query. After I saw your reply, I checked the 1870 census for Morgan county, Illinois and found an entry for a Robert Clark and his family in Franklin, Illinois, and his occupation is listed as "Minister Gospel". I then checked for current listings of churches in Franklin and I found four: Christian, Methodist, Baptist and Sacred Heart Parish Hall (I presume Catholic). I am guessing that Robert Clark was probably a preacher with the Methodist Church. I will do some research with the local genealogical society or contact the church directly to see if I am correct. I will let you know what I find out.
