Tombstone Tuesday - Clark

Joseph E. & Amanda P.
"In thee is the foundation
of life.
Thine works, do follow them."

This headstone stands in the Municipal Cemetery in Poulsbo, Kitsap County, Washington. There is no birth or death information, which intrigues me! So, after a little searching around, I found the following information. 

Amanda Paulie Clark was the daughter of J. and Laura Wright. She was born in Tennessee and died on December 25, 1922, at the age of 85 in Poulsbo, Washington.

Joseph Clark was born in about 1854 in Kentucky and died in Suquamish, Washington, on December 12, 1925. He was 72.

They lived in Duwamish, King County, Washington, in 1892; Eagle Harbor, Kitsap County, Washington, in 1910; and Suquamish, Kitsap, Washington, in 1920. According to the 1910 census, this was their only marriage, 26 years in duration. It is also recorded there that they had four children, three of whom were living at the time. However, in the three censuses viewed, no children were living with them. I was unable to locate them in the 1900 census.

I'm sure more can be found about this couple, but this gives a quick idea of their travels through life together. Does anyone know more?
