Biography

Claude served briefly during World War I, although the war ended before he went overseas. Claude and his first wife, Elsie Lowenhagen, had one son, Keith. She divorced him while he was in prison for counterfeiting.
According to his prison record, Claude was convicted on November 12, 1929 in Salt Lake City, Utah, and sentenced to three years for counterfeiting, a federal crime. He served his sentence on McNeil Island in Washington, where he was enumerated in the 1930 census.

Claude later married Lavelle Winne (marriage record not found).

Claude operated the Coulter Lake Guest Ranch until he sold it in the 1950s.

He died in Sun City, Arizona and is buried in Rose Hill Cemetery in Rifle, Colorado.

Research Notes

In family records, we spell Claude's middle name Forrest, but now I've found two draft documents where he spells it Forest. His sister, Orra, created the family records, and I'm fairly certain that he used the spelling Forrest in later life, so that's the spelling I'm using. I have been unable to find Claude in the 1940 census. He might have been using the name Jack Taylor at that time.
