The Chattanooga Daily Times, Saturday 5 October 1918:
J. Clyde Price, 25, son of Mr. and Mrs. J.C. Price, of East Fourth street, died Thursday evening in a Norfolk hospital at the naval training school. The well-known young man fell a victim of pneumonia following an attack of Spanish influenza. He entered the training school about four weeks ago. He is survived by his wife, who before her marriage was Miss Frances Wright, daughter of Judge Moses Wright of Rome; his parents; five sisters and two brothers. The young wife and her father, Judge Wright, were at the bedside when Mr. Price died. His father left here immediately on receipt of the news of his son’s serious illness, but reached Norfolk a few hours too late to see his son alive. The body will be brought south for burial. The remains, accompanied by the relatives, will reach Chattanooga this evening or tomorrow. Clyde Price, while a resident of Rome, was especially well know here, his partial residence. He was an upstanding, stalwart young American, earnest in endeavor and keen to be of service. He was here shortly before entering the training school and to friends expressed his happiness at being enabled to engage in preparation for the big game.
