Biography of Ausley Clarence Horton

CCCman,  Company V-2775, Camp Mandan, North Dakota

United States Army, WWI

        My father, Ausley Clarence Horton was born March 17, 1897 and served in World War I as a guard of prisoners of war. He returned home, married in 1921 and began raising a family.

       Times were difficult and he was very happy to secure a post to Camp Mandan, North Dakota with CoV-2775, where he was employed in the CCC projects. After his return home to his native Arkansas he was employed as a sawyer for a lumber company who specialized in making barrel staves used in whiskey production. He became head sawyer and spent many years in various logging communities in several states.

       He passed away on March 31,1985 and I would really like to hear from anyone who has clippings, or any sort of info on this camp of veterans.
