Clore - Clarence


Source: Waveland Independent Friday, Sept 6, 1901

Clarence Clore died at the home of his father, Marvin Clore, on Friday morning Aug 30, in the 19th year of his age. He was interred in the new Cemetery on Saturday afternoon after funeral services at the home conducted by Rev. HC Riley. The GAR attended as a body. Clarence Clore enlisted in the regular army early in 1900. He served first in Cuba and afterwards in Porto Rico. He was ordered to the Phillippines in the spring but when he reached San Francisco, he was seized with an illness from which he never recovered, resulting from exposure in the malarial districts of the islands. He was brought home and for a while before his death he appeared much better. During his illness, he suffered terribly. His record as a soldier was highly creditable, and while but a boy in age and appearance, he did a man's part and now sleeps a soldier's sleep.
