Over our nation's two hundred plus years of existence, there have been two United States Navy ships named "Claxton." The first, the DD-140, was Wickes Class Destroyer launched on January 14, 1919, at Mare Island Navy Yard twenty files miles north of San Francisco. The Claxton was stationed on the Pacific Coast of the United States until being decommissioned at San Diego on June 18, 1922.
