Kentucky Irish American, May 23, 1908

OFFICER CLAIRE DEAD
Officer Edward Claire, one of the most popular young policemen in the department, succumbed to heart failure and a complication of other ailments at his home, 2431 West Broadway, Monday evening. His death was indirectly the result of injuries received in a battle with two negroes he was attempting to arrest four years ago. During the fight with the negroes one of the policeman's ribs was broken and he received several heavy blows over the heart. Although he remained on duty until a few weeks ago Mr. Claire never fully regained his health. His wife and one child survive him. The funeral took place from St. Charles Borromeo church Wednesday morning and was largely attended.

Edward married Catherine Arnold on 10-15-1905 in Louisville, KY. They had one son, Edward B Claire, who was born 1904-05.
