San Bernardino County
According to "Ingersoll's Century Annals of San Bernardino County, 1769-1904," California State Library, Sacramento, pages 717 and 718, Clyde Herbert Darrow owned 15 acres one mile east of Bloomington, San Bernardino County, California, planted in peaches, apricots, and oranges. Clyde moved to Rialto in 1887. He and his brother-in-law, Ezra Graft (husband of Clyde's sister, Nellie), painted the first buildings in town.
The Salvation Army's "War Cry" printed the following after he passed away:
"HIS FAITH NEVER WAVERED
"Brother Clyde H. Darrow was Promoted to Glory recently after a short illness, at San Bernardino, Calif.
"Commandant Carrol of Los Angeles Citadel Corps, assisted by Ensign and Mrs. Phillips and Lieutenant Hinshaw conducted the funeral services. Three grandsons and friends acted as pallbearers, laying him to rest in the Hermosa Cemetery, Colton, Calif.
"Brother Darrow was converted in 1882 in the Methodist Church, and was sworn into the San Bernardino Corps by Captain Guthrie in the spring of 1903. After several years of faithful service serving as Treasurer and in various other offices in the Corps, he removed to a farm near Columbus, N. Mex., where he resided until failing health made it advisable to return to California about two months before his death, at the age of seventy-two years.
"Yet his faith in God never wavered. Though he was unable to attend religious Meetings, he spent his spare time reading his Bible and War Crys, in meditation and in prayer. He marked many passages, which show his determination to be true to the last.
"His widow, daughter and several grandchildren are Salvation Army Soldiers and request the prayers of all.--A Comrade."
