      John Bullock Clark, Sr. (April 17, 1802 ? October 29, 1885) was a member of both the United States Congress and the Confederate Congress.

      Clark was born in Madison County, Kentucky, a nephew of Congressmen Christopher Henderson Clark and James Clark. He attended the country schools, studied law, and was admitted to the bar in 1824. Establishing a law practice in Fayette, Missouri, he served as clerk of the Howard County courts from 1824 until 1834. Clark was commissioned colonel of Missouri Mounted Volunteers during the Black Hawk War in 1832. He was promoted to major general of the state militia in 1848.

      Entering politics, Clark was a member of the State house of representatives in 1850 and 1851. He was appointed as a Democrat to the Thirty-fifth Congress to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of James S. Green. He was reelected to the Thirty-sixth and Thirty-seventh Congresses and served from December 7, 1857, until July 13, 1861, when he was expelled for having taken up arms against the Union. He was replaced by William Augustus Hall.

      Clark served as a Senator from Missouri in the First Confederate Congress and a Representative in the Second Confederate Congress. He also served in the field as a brigadier general in the Missouri State Guard.

      After the war, he practiced law until his death in Fayette, Missouri. He was buried in Fayette Cemetery.

      His son, John Bullock Clark, Jr. served as a general in the Confederate States Army as well as a postbellum U.S. Congressman. [1, 3]
