Gregory, Clare 1910-1931 Formerly of New Lisbon

Gregory, Clare Othello  1910-1931 Formerly of New Lisbon

Nephew of Mt. Vision Man Dies in Arkansas

Word has been received by C. O. Gregory of Mt. Vision of the death in Waters, Arkansas, March 10, of his nephew, Clare Gregory, son of Horatio E. Gregory. The latter spent his early life in the town of New Lisbon and had a wide circle of friends and acquaintances in Otsego and Delaware counties. He moved to Arkansas 25 years ago and has been prominent in farming and business affairs in the community where he made his home.
Clare Gregory's death was diagnosed as due to spinal meningitis resulting from an injury to his ear about eight years ago. He was sawing wood, it was reported, and a swaying oak branch pushed a small twig inside his ear. He was a junior in High school, and a letter received by his uncle from J. H. Shaw, superintendent of schools at Oden, Arkansas, paid tribute to the young man as an exceptional student and a star basketball player, as well as a popular lad in the school and community.
