Grandpa Ira's occupations were carpenter, well driller and house mover. My Aunt, Ira's Granddaughter, said her mother Flora believed his death was attributed to a hunting accident to the lung, which he had experienced earlier in life. The official record states he died of tuberculosis.

The Daily Republican, 17 Sep 1921, Saturday, Pg 3
"IRA CLEVENGER SUCCUMBS
Expires After Several Months Illness
With Tuberculosis
Ira Clevenger, a well-known laborer of this city died yesterday afternoon about 3:30 o/clock at his residence, 111 N. Pearl St. death being caused from a several months illness with tuberculosis. The deceased was 65 years old. He is survived by two sons and one daughter.
The funeral services will be held at 2:30 o'clock Sunday afternoon at the Main Street Christian Church, in charge of the Rev. L. E. Brown. Interment will be made in East Hill cemetery."

Ira is my maternal Gr-Grandfather. I wish we knew more about him. He seems to have been a hard worker and was certainly very handsome. He will never be forgotten.

Rest in peace dearest Grandpa.

Many thanks to Mr Colen for his much appreciated and helpful information.
