Recently received obit for Clyde E. Bruce that stated his father, David E. Bruce was still living in Calhan, CO at the time of his death. Need to know if Clyde's parents David E. Bruce and his wife Sarah L. Day-Bruce died in Colorado. Am researching the migration of this Bruce family and am looking for descendants. A sister of Clyde's named Pansy E. Bruce m. Otto M. Foster and lived in Semia, Elbert Co, CO at the time of Clyde's death in May 1946 which is close by Calhan, El Paso Co, CO. Am also looking for her Foster descendants.

Clyde Bruce To Be Buried Sunday In Custer City

Services for Clyde E. Bruce, 41, who died at his home in Custer City this morning, will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday afternoon at the Baptist church in Custer City with Rev. Ross Hamer and Rev. I.J. Lloyd in charge. Burial will be in the Custer City cemetery by Kern and Schneider funeral home.

Bruce was reared east of Custer City. In 1930 the family moved to Colorado where they resided until two years ago when they returned to the Custer City community. He was a member of the Union Baptist church at Pleasant Hill.

He is survived by his wife, and one son, Clyde Earl; his father, D. E. Bruce of Calhan, Colo.; and two sisters, Mrs. Otto Foster of Semia, Colo., and Mrs. Goldie Compton of Dallas, Texas.
