Alvin A. Clark enlisted in the 2nd Parker County Minute Men (Texas Rangers) on April 26, 1866 at Weatherford in Parker County and for an enlistment of 3 months and 9 days. Captain Hartford Howard and his ranger company were pursuing Indians who had killed several citizens and stolen livestock in the county. Private Alvin A. Clark and 7 citizens were on patrol when they were attacked by hostile Indians near Springtown. Private Clark was killed and two citizens were wounded. The newspaper reported that none of the Indians were injured. The Indians traveled down the Brazos Valley as far as Comanche Peak in Johnson County stealing horses, and then started back north.
