Clinton Perry was 17 years old when he enlisted in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, as a musician February 16, 1864. He was mustered into Company F, 93rd Pennsylvania Infantry. He was mustered out at Washington, D.C., June 27, 1865. After the war he settled in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he was employed as a baker. He was 23 years old when he enlisted as a private at Philadelphia March 1, 1870. He was mustered into Company M, 5th U. S. Cavalry, and posted to Fort McPherson, Nebraska, where he worked in the mess hall as a baker. He was transferred to Company H and eventually posted to San Carlos, Arizona, where he was discharged at the expiration of his term of service on March 1, 1875. He was married in 1875 (wife's name unknown) and remained in Arizona, where he filed for a Civil War veteran's pension September 15, 1891, receiving certificate No. 1,174,472. By January 1920 he was a widower working as a baker in the Courtland District of Douglas. Sometime prior to 1930 he moved to Dos Cabezas, where he was still living when he was admitted to the County Hospital in Douglas in June 1932. He died as the result of an intestinal obstruction only a few days later.
