Clinton Ernie Dern was born Nov.30, 1882 in Madison County, Ohio, the son of John and Sarah Dern. He came to Wyoming in 1904, homesteading on 20 Mile creek 40 miles northwest of Lusk. He became interested in cattle and was engaged in the cattle business at the time of his death. In 1910 he married Miss Ethel Hitshew and they were the parents of two children, Mrs. Donna Keller and a son Oliver who died at the age of 13. Mr. Dern was counted among the most substantial people in this part of Wyoming.
