CLIFFORD BARR AND
DOROTHY BOFFORD-BARR FAMILY
Warren G. Harding was President of the United States. It would have been around the time the United States formally ends World War I, declaring a peace with Germany. And in The Bronx, construction begins on Yankee Stadium.
Clifford fought in the Battle of the Buldge in WWII, as an Army Communications Officer in the European Theater of Operations, where he received two Purple Hearts, and badges for good conduct and marksmanship. After an eight-year term with the Army, he settled in Sedalia, Missouri following the war. He had married Dorothy Louise Bofford on May 3rd, 1942 in the Catholic Chapel in McChord Field, Washington, by Reverend Butterbaugh. Dorothy was born to John Bofford and Helen Ordway Bofford on December 28th, 1922 in Denver, Colorado. The two would have eight children, and lived in Sedalia, Missouri until 1969. Clifford owned and operated a Western Auto franchise store there, and also established a propane gas route in the area for Skelgas.
