Steelworker

Clarence was a steelworker in Chicago before moving to Florida. His paents were Levi Silas HUFFORD and Eleanor "Nellie" DRISCOLL. Clarence first married Theresa LOCKWOOD (aka Theresa LOONSFOOT). With Theresa, Clarence had three children: Clarence Jr. (1933-2001), Dorothy (1934-1972), and Dolores, (1936-1936). (A fourth child was born during the marriage, but DNA has shown that was not Clarence's child.) The marriage ended in divorce, and Clarence secondly married Mary E. FITZPATRICK. With Mary, Clarence had five children: Daniel (1950-1988), William J. (1954–1991), another son, and two daughters.

Clarence is listed on page 177 of the 1909 HUFFORD FAMILY HISTORY.

DNA has come into play in several instances regarding Clarence’s descendants:
First, as a result of autosomal DNA, it was learned that a daughter born to Clarence’s first wife during their marriage was not fathered by Clarence. That child was born in December 1937. It is not known who fathered her, but she was not fathered by Clarence.
Second, autosomal DNA proved that Clarence’s daughter Dorothy (b. 1934) birthed a daughter in May 1953. That child was placed for adoption as an infant.
Third, autosomal DNA proved Clarence’s daughter born in 1947 as the mother of a woman born in about 1970. Estrangement within months of birth had resulted in that child not knowing any of her mother’s biological family. The child was raised by her father and had no knowledge of her mother’s biological family.
Fourth, autosomal DNA and Y-DNA proved that Clarence’s son William fathered a son who was born in 1977. William died in 1991. It was January 2019 when William’s son learned the name of his biological father.
