He was somewhat gullible and once put a cardboard Kangaroo on the end of his television aerial to stop getting interference from Aussie stations.
He used Marine Dept Blue Paint to paint the family home at 17 Queen Street, Westport.
He also used it to paint the family graves in the Orowaiti Cemetery.

Birth17 Apr 1883John Clark was born on 17 Apr 1883 at Dog Island Lighthouse Keepers Residence, Bluff, Southland, New Zealand ,

John Clark
17 April 1883
Dog Island Foveaux Strait

Parents: Margaret Clark, 16 years

Informant: Harriett Clark, Dog Island, Grand-mother of child.1,2

 
He was the son of Harriett Margaret McGraw/ Clark
Research NoteResearch Note:
Margaret stated a number of times that William Harper, the other Lighthouse Keeper on Dog Island was the father of her child.
This is recorded in the transcripts that Yvonne Chisholm researched in the Marine Department Records, and some details in the newspapers regarding James Clark's death.
William Harper denied this, but the Marine Department did issue him with instructions to leave the Island after James Clark notified them of serious breach had accorded.

We will never know if William Harper was the father of Margaret's child or some other person visiting the Island via the steamers.
Seemingly the Harper descendants had not heard of any of the stories handed down.

Research NoteResearch Note:
As a child she was boarded at Mrs Shadford's in Port Chalmers so she could attend school. She was kept back from school on Fridays so she could black the coal range.

She had a reputation for being delicate. As a young women she spent some time in a sanatorium near Palmerston most likely with TB.

After her sister Emily died, she never cried again.

She was very keen on horse racing and used to attend race meetings with her sister Eliza. Mag would look after the boarders on these occasions.
In her later years she lived in a couple of rooms upstairs in the family home.

After her death the family home was demolished by the Port Chalmers Council and all the family photo albums and associated memorabilia were destroyed in the operation.
