  • Crawford Calvin Clarke (9 July 1868–4 December 1941)

After the death of his brother-in-law, John B. Yount, at Pekin, Big Canon, El Dorado County, California, Calvin Rutter Clarke ran the trading post for his sister, Levenia Clarke Yount. He freighted the goods from Sacramento.

In 1873, Calvin Clarke opened the first hydraulic mine in the state of Tolimia, Columbia, South America for an English company. He was one of the locators of the Idaho Mine, but he sold his interest in that mine and went into the grocery business in Grass Valley.

Calvin Clarke was sheriff of Nevada County for two terms and assessor for one term. Later he was postmaster in Nevada City. He was buried in City Cemetery, Sacramento, California.
