Birth: Dec. 4, 1896
Parker County
Texas, USA
Death: Jul. 16, 1965
Fort Worth
Tarrant County
Texas, USA

Son of Homer Clay & Georgia Cruse.


Uncle Sterling served in World War I.


He was an auto mechanic by trade and passed from death to life at age 68.

Cause of death: subarachnoid hemorrhage (or Bleeding into the intracranial or spinal SUBARACHNOID SPACE, most resulting from INTRACRANIAL ANEURYSM rupture. It can occur after traumatic injuries (SUBARACHNOID HEMORRHAGE, TRAUMATIC). Clinical features include HEADACHE; NAUSEA; VOMITING, nuchal rigidity, variable neurological deficits and reduced mental status.
There is no "accident" listed on his death certificate, so possibly his was caused by an aneurysm??? I know he was in the hospital several times due to blood clots.


My Uncle Sterling was a quiet man. I wasn't around
him much when I was growing up. I do know he was
extremely talented. He made all sorts of miniture
wooden items,from farm equipment to auto. He could
make anything he set his mind to, and they all had
working parts.

He was so talented that his miniture collection
was on display at one of the area museum's in the
Fort Worth area. I wished I could find out where
because they would be a treasure for his grand
neice's and nephew's to know.
