I believe the claim for Clarendon is second largest individual stony meteorite main mass for US. Nice pictures of a sample of this 'new' chondrite.

According to the Met. Bulletin, there is also: Etter - 450kg, Long Island - 564kg, Plainview - 700kg, in addition to Paragould - 408kg and Norton Co. - 1.1ton. And Hugoton is not far behind at 350kg. So, no, certainly not the 2nd largest for the US.

Thank you Suzanne! At least, the 20th Century fall Paragould, Arkansas and of course, Norton County, Kansas have heavier main mass stones! But as Bernd commented this is in a remarkable state of preservation

Nice shallow thumbprints and dark-looking crust. Amazing after having been exposed to the elements for such a long time!
