Note: The original creator of this memorial included the comment, likely from an obituary notice, that at his death Claude was "survived by one son Byrd & three sisters." If this is true, it means that Claude's sister Mary Ann Stone, called "Mrs. Mary Ann Cullifer" in a 1894 supplement to their mother's pension application, was still living in May 1920.
