By 1920, he was living in Goshen Lane County.

By 1930 (according to a United States Census Report) he was shown as 'Married' (age of marriage was 18). Nothing is known about this early union. At the time he was living at West Moreland with his parents James and Jessie.

By 1940, he was living in Dorena, Lane County (rented room of private family) and his occupation listed as a United States Flood Control Engineer. Later in life, Clyde worked in the logging industry at Cottage Grove.

This image is thought to be Clyde McNeil, but possibly because of the difficulty in identifying the McNeil brothers, it could be Hubert or James.
