  • Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHY: The following biography was extracted from a Kirkpatrick History entitled "A Legacy of Reuben B. Kirkpatrick and Lourania Dulcena Watkins" compiled by Shirley Ann (Kirkpatrick) Cohen completed in 1997.
      Clyde enlisted for emergency service in the US Army as a Private First Class in the Medical Department, serving from 3 Sep 1918 to 31 Dec 1918. He received a honorable discharge with impaired vision in his left eye. He had blue eyes and dard brown hair of medium complexion and stood 5' 8 3/4" tall.
      Clyde drove a streetcar for a time until his ex-wife made life unbearable and he quit his job, sold his home in Maryland Heights, and escaped to Arkansas, changed his name to Graeme or Graham in order to hide from her. After a year he got a job with the Civilian Conservation Corps(CCC) and with his family of 13 moved to Morrilton, AR to live on Petit Jean Mountain where he helped build a state park. He was injured in an explosion and in the hospital for over a year. This was in the height of the depression and food was hard to impossible to obtain. Clyde was awarded a disability allowance as a WW I veteran in the amount of $12.00 a month beginning 14 Aug 1930. After his partial recovery from injuries, the family moved back to Missouri and lived with his sister (Helen aka "Mimmie") for over a year until they could qualify for Aid fro Dependent Children(ADC). Clyde was a self-educated man but never worked again for the rest of his life. Life was a hardship for him and he had many troubles in his lifetime. He was very strict, and he phisically and mentally abused his children as was the custom of the day. His arthritis and heart disease caused him to move in 1955 to California for a year (weather was dry but too humid), then moved to the hot dry climat of Arizona, where he died of the heart disease in 1959.
      He was an atheist most of his life. As he mellowed out in old age he began to accept the possibility of God.
