James Clark II, Bedford County, Pennsylvania gunsmith

Sellers' 2008 book "American Gunsmiths" lists a James Clark as a gunsmith in Bedford County, Pennsylvania in 1877. Sellers indicates his source for the information is a directory. I refer to this individual as James Clark II because a James Clark is also identified as a gunsmith on the 1821 tax roll of Hopewell Township, Bedford County. It seems unlikely that one individual could be a gunsmith in 1821 and 1877 and yet escape detection as a gunsmith in the intervening years.
