Clinton Ellsworth Dooley was the son of John Nelson Dooley and Elvira Catherine Harbold. He was the seventh of their eight children. Clint married Mabel Esther Smith on February 26, 1913. To them were born three daughters, Vivian Amanda, Mary Irene and Eva Ruth.
He began working in coal mines when he was 12 years old. In his life he also worked as a farmer, telephone lineman, on road maintenance, the railroads and ran the separator on a threshing machine. His brother, Benjamin Frank Dooley died after being crushed between two trains. Clint did not have much formal education but he was very smart. He was very knowledgable in the aspects of the law, the Bible, business and mechanical things. His youngest daughter (my Grandmother), Eva Ruth, told me that Clint could talk his way out of anything. He was a staunch Democrat and often participated in community debates.
My Grandmother remembers going to the debates. The children always had to give a recitation before the debates began. She was about 4 years old when Clint took her and her sisters to the coal mines to see Clint's brothers. Her oldest sister, Vivian, who was 7 or 8 was afraid to go down into the mines so my Grandmother stayed above ground with her while 6 year old Irene went down into the mines.
