Brighton's Historical Silhouettes

Benjamin Treadwell Onderdonk Clark was an infant when his family came to Brighton in 1837 just after the tiny town of Ore Creek was renamed. His father, Reverend William A. Clark held the first regular religious services in the community and donated the land for the Village Cemetery and the future St. Paul Episcopal Church. After serving in the Civil War with the 11th Michigan Infantry, B.T.O. married Katie. He soon became an attorney, Justice of the Peace, postmaster, and the first Village Clerk in 1867. St. Paul Episcopal Church opened in 1881 with funds dedicated by the Clark family and several community members. B.T.O. passed in 1916 and was buried in Brighton's Old Village Cemetery. He was one of Brighton's most respected and trusted community members.
