Born in London, England, George Clark immigrated to the US about 1870. (A record for a "George Clark" exists for someone who came to New York from Liverpool aboard the City of Brooklyn on 04/03/1871. The entry indicated that this man was a printer by trade. See Ancestry.com, Source Citation Year: 1871; Arrival: New York, New York; Microfilm Serial: M237, 1820-1897; Microfilm Roll: Roll 340; Line: 50; List Number: 247,accessed 01/22/2016.) He settled initially in Omaha, NB.

Clark remained here for about two years before relocating to Marinette, WI, a twin city of Menominee, MI, north of Green Bay. As indicated by the 1880 US Census, he stayed in Marinette unitl about 1886, before moving to Victoria, BC, where he remained until about 1887. (The 1880 US Census indicated that he was 44 in that year, making his birthday c. 1836.

His obituary in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, of 11/29/1888. contained some of the only biographical information known about Clark: "George Clark was born in London, England, about 1844, and came to the United States in 1870, settling in Omaha, Neb., where he remained for two years, then removing to Marinette, Wisconsin, where he was married to Miss Susan Brown in 1874. About two years since Mr. and Mrs. Clark removed to Victoria, remaining there a year, amd then coming with his partner, Mr. Fisher, and his wife, to Seattle, where they have remained since. Mr. Ckark stood high in his profession, and was much respected by all his acquaintances and friends. He leaves a wife, but no children."
