Uncle Cleve lived most of his life in or near Florala, Alabama.
In his early years he was in the lumber business as a hired hand.
While working in a sawmill operation near Galliver in about 1915, he
lost his right eye when a belt broke and one of the metal laces
pierced his eye. He was fitted with a glass eye which would become
his particular trademark for the rest of his life.
