Claude Henderson Muncy Sr.: Looking for Connections

Claude H. Muncy (b. 1895 / d. 1974) was a son of William Tecumseh Sherman Muncy (Sherman) and Essie Catherine Tudor Muncy. He was born in Oklahoma and died in Arkansas after serving for over thirty years in the U. S. Navy. He had one child — a son named after himself, Claude H. Muncy, Jr.

Claude Jr. became a hero after he was killed on the U.S.S. Arizona at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. Claude Sr. lost his only son–his only off-spring. Claude Jr. was not married.

Claude Sr. outlived his second wife, Violet Bettis Muncy.

I was recently contacted by a family that had inherited papers and photos from Claude Muncy Sr. They obtained these materials after a distant cousin died who was a distant cousin Claude. These materials were sent to me in the event that a relative or connection to Claude Muncy can be found who wants them. Many of the photos, letters, etc. are related to the Doshier and Halley families.

If you are connected in any way to Claude Muncy, I’d be happy to send you these materials to keep them in the family. Just send me email and describe your family connection to Claude Muncy.
