    John from California here. Thank you very much for this entry. Claude is my great-grandfather so it’s very nice to access concrete information on him. I’m sure my father will appreciate the photo of him as a boy, too.

  2. Gregory T. Hudgens says:

    Greeting, Greg from North Hollywood here. Claude B. was my grandfather, Claude R. my uncle. Trying to figure out how we are related!
    Claude also had a brother named Frank. I visited him a couple of times in the 60s when he was living in so. Cal. Maybe west valley? Didnt think he had children. You from that side or my uncle Claude’s side of the family?Claude and Virginias had 3 children but only remember the names of 2. Claudia, Bruce and maybe Robert?
    Hope to hear from you!
