According to Claude's grandaughter (daughter of Claude's daughter Claudina), Claude left Canada at the age of 12 to escape abusive parents. I don't know where he was before the WWI draft of 1917.
According to Claude's grandson (son of Claude's daughter Claudina), Claude spent much of his time at the pool hall.
Claude passed away in October of 1969. Does anyone have access to Fremont County newspapers?
I do not know when Claude's wife, Afton, passes away.
