He was born 11 Dec 1909 in Jefferson County, WV to Albert E. and Bessie V. (Barron) Clemmons. He was a beloved son, who was unmarried and had no children. Clarence's death benefit check supported his parents until their death which was 1948 for his father and 1964 for his mother. His parents used these monies received for their support and to provide for two of Clarence's nephews that his parents were raising until they reached eighteen years of age.
I am Clarence's nephew, Charles Eugene Clemmons. I would like to hear from anyone who knew or served with him.
Thanks to Sgt. Clemmons' nephew, Charles E. Clemmons for this information and picture of his uncle.
