Old Photograph of the L. E. Clark House, Princeton, Massachusetts
Update of February 2, 2016: I've heard from a Clark descendant who tells me that this farm, located on Old Colony Road, at the foot of Mt. Wachusett, is protected as a historic place.
Update of 10/28/10: I've found a Panorama of the L. E. Clark farm.
Old Photograph of a Farmhouse identified on reverse in faint pencil as "Old Home, Princeton, Mass., L. E. Clark".

Researching online, I found a Leslie Everett Clark living in Princeton, Massachusetts in the Censuses of 1910 through 1930.
Assuming this is the correct L. E. Clark and that the information I found is correct:
Leslie Everett Clark was born about 1868 in Massachusetts, the son of Everett Osborn Clark and his wife Mary (Osborn) Clark. Leslie's paternal grandparents were Isaac and Almira (Osborn) Clark. I haven't yet determined the parents of Leslie's mother Mary (Osborn) Clark.
Leslie Everett Clark married Mary Ada Pendleton, who was born about 1866 in Meddybemps, Maine, the daughter of Andrew and May (Pierce) Pendleton. The family had moved to Wayland, Massachusetts by the 1880 Census. Mary Ada Pendleton's paternal grandparents were Andrew and, possibly, Mary (?) Pendleton. I don't yet have information on the parents of May (Pierce) Pendleton, who was born in New Brunswick, Canada or Maine.
Leslie and Ada had a son, George Everett Clark, born in 1893 and several others in the following years. Leslie Everett Clark, according to a reference online, died in 1936.
