Peace Time Medal of Honor Recipient. He served as a Chief Gunner's Mate in the US Navy. On July 5, 1905, there was an explosion of a boiler on board the U.S.S.

Chief Gunner's Mate Clausey displayed extraordinary heroism while removing the injured, restored order and resolved the problem. For this action, he was awarded the Medal of Honor on January 5, 1906.
