I'd never heard or read anywhere about 1915. When I first read about his stint in 1932 it was a newspaper account, but the link is no longer in google. Ed Hamman owned the team in 1932 and they played a ton of games...150+ I believe. They picked up players here, there and everywhere under Hamman. It's entirely possible that Claxton played with them for only a game or two just because the Indians were in the same town he happened to be in.
