Primary profession or occupation:
When Clyde was about 2 he was climbing around on some boards which had been
removed from an old wagon, when he stepped on a nail. His mother, Bessie, and
grandmother Little poured kerosene in a bucket and made him soak his foot in
it. When he was a little older, he was playing with a cousin who was whirling
a gear plate around and let go and it cut Clyde's jugular vein. His mom
poured pepper in the wound and got the blood stopped. Age 3 he was punching at
a mule which kicked him in face. Unconscious several days.
