Prior to enlistment, he was suffering from 'heart' issues, and was previously rejected by the Navy as unfit. He expected to be rejected by the army too, but to everyone's surprise, he was passed as A1. His Tachycardia was aggravated by his military service, according to the pension board Doctors.

Research Notes

  • Research note 01: In 1911, he and Rosa said they had had 2 children. Both were with them for the census. They had 1 child after the census, but there is an earlier daughter listed in his army papers. Doris was born just a few months before they married, so it is likely she was fathered by Clifford.. Clifford's pension records show he was getting money for 4 children..
