  • Name Clarence Ford Atwood 
    Born 9 Jul 1897  Eastland County, Texas Find all individuals with events at this location 
    • Date/location are from Texas Death Certificate; confirmed by Social Security Death Index; When Clarence Ford Atwood filled out his World War I Draft Registration Card he listed a birth date of July 9, 1895 - and the earlier census records seem to bear this out. For now I am using the date provided by the Texas Death Certificate; however, I believe it is highly likely that he was born 1895.
