this looks like the issue.
doing the rpm -qf /usr/lib/systemd/system/clamd at .service
gave no owner??
So I tried a reinstall and it informed me the package 
clamav-server-systemd-0.99.2-1.el7.noarch was not installed - no idea 
where the systemd service file came from.
So I installed it and it now appears to run.

thanks so much for your assistance - progress finally being made!
