Birth: Nov. 15, 1887
Pittsburg County
Oklahoma, USA
Death: Dec. 13, 1918
Le Flore County
Oklahoma, USA

Clarence was out West (probably Texas) picking cotton, when he was called up for WWI. He was returning to Talihina for induction into the service when he became ill. Coe was told by someone that Clarence was in a hotel in Talihina severly ill with the the Spanish Flu, so Coe fixed a pallet in the back of a wagon to go and get him and bring him home. When Coe arrived the doctor said that Clarence needed to spend one more night in town, and that if he was feeling better the next day, they could return to the Divide. The next day, Clarence died of flu and pneumonia. Coe had a coffin built for him and buried him at New Home Cemetery before returning home. Carrie could not attend the services for her brother because she was ill with the flu at the time.

Clarence lived with Coe and Carrie. Herb Fields relates that as young boy Coe came to New Home hauling a large box. When he asked Coe if he had tools in there, Coe replied, "I don't have tools in there, I have Clarence. He is dead and I'm a gonna bury him."
