Iowa, USA
Death: Jul. 22, 1905
San Diego
San Diego County
California, USA

Clive was born to Walter Leake Brockman Jr and Adeline Smith Brockman as their 4th child.

In 1900, when Clive was 18 years old, he was living at home with his family in Des Moines, Iowa and was working as a salesman for a dry goods store.

Clive died at the age of 23 from an explosion on the Navy's USS Bennington ship when it was docked in San Diego, California. The ship was launched in 1890 and served in the Spanish American War and throughout the Pacific looking after America's interests. The ship suffered a boiler explosion on July 21, 1905 that ended up killing 66 men and injured nearly everyone else on board.

Clive is buried with his younger brother, Walter Clayton Brockman, who died in 1893 at only 20 months old. After Clive died, his parents and brothers moved to California.

Clive's other siblings were: Wavelette Brockman Moll, Wilbur Egbert Brockman, John Crawford Brockman, Bertha Isabel Brockman, Claude Irl Brockman, Cecilia Irene Brockman, Charles Conner Brockman, and Harold W. Brockman.
