There is a story on him in Fanning the Embers. That is what we used in Tartan Tales.

Glad to help.
Jack likely has something since he was a Scot & a sheepman in Jordan area. Oh, I see he already responded. More coffee needed here.

Clifford Innes was in the CCHS graduating class of 1944. I heard later that he had married Helen Groth and they had moved to Canada.
