Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 20, 1875
Colorado, USA
Death: Jun. 21, 1951

California, USA

Clinton was born to a railroad worker and homemaker. At 33, he married 17-year-old Ethel Downey, and in a short time moved to the Central Valley of California. Ethel followed, and in 1915, they lived in tents on the Kings river, until they finally saved enough for a home. Clinton worked as a ditch digger, using dynamite to break through the hard pan of the valley.
