    As indicated above, some genealogies have his name as Clarence Clyde.  However, there is a Clyde Walker Terry buried in the family cemetery.  This may indicate that Clyde and Clarence were different individuals, since the birth dates don't match.  From the birth date on his grave and death certificate, Clyde Walker Terry would have been about 15 at the 1900 census.

    At only 15, it seems he should have been enumerated in the household alone with the other children.  The oldest there is Clarence, born in 1891.  This seems to support the idea that they are the same.  If so, then this child had three given names:  Clarence Clyde Walker.

    The birth date on the grave of Clyde Walker Terry fails to match with the reported birth date from family sources for Clarence (Clarence Clyde), with the 1900 age of 9.  The grave says he was born in March 1885.  This is 6 years older than the 1900 census indicates.  A date in 1891 is reported by some genealogies, saying May 1891 instead of March 1885.  Clyde Walker Terry's death certificate is different still, reporting 17 March 1884.  There was a lot of guess work going on with this family.
