P.Reeves please email me at [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. I believe we are cousins. Clarence is my great great grand and I have all of his early press clippings and his son is still alive in Springfield OH...my great uncle. I have been searching for my cousins for several years.

If you click on their profiles I think you can send them direct messages.

Would really like to see what ANYBODY has, on the KID. Found a bunch of stuff online and working on putting together album on him, so anything would be great to have in addition to what internet search already turned up! P.Reeves & Dnew, and the fella who knew his first manager, and Bugger too as u posted pics... anything y'all got would be awesome to have, to include. ~ALABAMA KID should be commemorated in the States also, especially in Dover OH where he started and anywhere the Greats of Boxing History are mentioned; he certainly belongs in their ranks. Anyone interested in contributing to that venture please e-mail me at [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]. Thanx!

[quote=P.Reeves;11759098]Hi people
Thankyou for posting and giving me more information on our grandfather that we never got to meet.
i have some stories handed down to me via my nan (grandmother).
1st why he was called Alabama Kid.....
He lived in Ohio but his mum & dad would not let box so he went to another state for a pro fight (Alabama as the story goes) there he was given his name. While in australia he had numerous fights which i have details of from local press, if anyone is interested. he married my nan had two kids and one in the oven still cooking when he was deported under the white Australia policy. Thats another story. 1st time i had seen him was on a promotion card, I then realized where my eye brows come from .
I have stories, i would like anything someone may have on him including video footage as have never seen him live only photos. Will be traveling to the US in 2012 and am planing a trip to Dover Ohio to say G'Day to relatives i hope to find. Anyway ask any questions and i can give what i know, more than happy for any infomation anyone has.
Again Thankyou for all you guys have provided already[/QUOT
