The oldest daughter of Willie Hollaway, Clyde gets married about
and moves off to Colorado with her new husband.
1914- Benjamin Austin had been
the smelting industry in Colorado and then later in the steel
Birmingham, Alabama. According to my mother Benjamin fell
vat of molted steel and killed immediately. Clyde was made
widow with three young sons. By 1920 she seems to be
well enough to own her home in which she seems to be operating a
boarding house. She has a couple of black servants that
the back who I assume help her with the care of the house.
1917-1918- Benjamin Hill Austin
for the draft in Jefferson Co., Ala.
1920- Clyde Hollaway Austin is a
listed as (Mrs) Ben. H. Austin,
living in Pine Bluff City, Jefferson Co., Arkansas. She
running a boarding house and has four single adults and a couple
with her and calls herself a housekeeper. She also seems
servants living in rear.
1920-22 - Clyde remarries to Charlie
1930- Ernest L. Holloway, Clyde's brother, has a family in Arkansas and has taken in Lee Austin, his sisters oldest son for a period of time.
Clyde has remarried to Charles Bainbridge and is living in Pine
Arkansas. Note the different spelling
1935-approximately Charles and Clyde
Bainbridge move to Berkeley, California where he was a painting
paperhanging contractor. By about 1954 they move to San Lorenzo,
probably to be near Clyde's son Dan Austin and his family.
1957- December about 21st.
Bainbridge dies in Hayward, California.
1960's - While Cyde was living in
Sadie Hollaway Kirkland Johnson, would go to visit usually by
train. On one particular trip they traveled around by
car. Sadie was surprised that they had to stop so
frequently at gas stations where her sister disappeared into the
restroom. When Sadie went in to follow her the window was
open. On more than one occasion she caught the smell of a
cigarette. Clyde never admitted to smoking but it seemed
appropriate behavior for the time. Clyde was known
never opening her bedroom door until she was completely dressed
including her pearl necklace. [experience and story as told to
Christenson in an interview with Sadie about 1964]
1972, November 1. Clyde Bainbridge
age 87 in California.
