Following his discharge, Sargeant Clark emigrated to Southern California. Whiletraveling from Bakersfield to Salt LakeCity on a buckboard, he stopped near this spot, tied his horse to the back of the wagon and wandered around, possibly looking for water. Eventually, he crawledunder his buckboard and died, presumablyfrom thirst, several days before his bodywas found 30 June 1915.
