Clifford C. Schell was born at home in Ripley on Feb. 21, 1897. He was the son of Charles Schell, by trade a bricklayer, who had a hand in building Westfield's and Ripley's train stations. Other major buildings in those towns, including schools, libraries, and town businesses, also had courses of bricks that were laid by Schell's father. Schell's mother, Emma, worked full-time in Ripley school's cafeteria in addition to being a homemaker and raising Schell and his siblings, Willart (Bill), Emmit, Harry (Hap), Gus, and Alfreda (called Fritz).
