I went and had a hunt forMartha M Clark 1846 ~ 1905 in the 1900 United States Federal Census on Ancestry.com. I found several individuals of interest as you can see below. I think the Martha M Clark in Plymouth, Grafton, New Hampshire is the Martha we are looking for but it will take a little more work to say for sure. There are many thousands of genealogy entries for the Clark surname. If you want to have a look at them I have a link to a Free Trial on Ancestry.com. Ancestry has more genealogy records than any site on the net and they often have free trials and special promotions.

Coffin plates often contain birth and death dates, and sometimes the place of birth or the occupation of a deceased person.
While not technically a true vital record, coffin plates can be seen as a substitute for vital records or at the least a good clue. In the case of people who died before civil registration it might be one of the few written records genealogists will find in their hunt for that brick wall ancestor!
If you want to know more about what things qualify as a true Vital Records there is a good article at the Olive Tree.
Remember when searching for Coffin Plates on the net they are sometimes referred to as Coffin Plaques, Casket plates or Casket Plaques.
