Percibal Clay connections

Seeking any family connections for Percibal [various spellings] Clay who appears in several North Carolina county deed records (Lenoir/Johnston and Duplin / Sampson) from the 1750s to the 1780s.  He must have been born in the 1730s in VA or NC.  He moved to GA in the 1790s.  What is his relationship, if any, to David Clay who served  in the Revolutionary War from Duplin Co., NC and removed to GA, eventually in Wilkinson County where he died in 1818? Percibal Clay (of Washington County, GA) signed an affidavit for Henry
Holland of Tattnall County, GA in 1833 when Henry applied for a pension. Henry Holland had married Sarah Clay in Duplin Co., NC in 1783.  Was Sarah Clay Percibal Clay's daughter?  Any clues or suggestions for research appreciated.  Contact me by e-mail:  h-srodgers@mindspring.com  Thanks!

Any Colbert Clay  information?

IF  you find a Colbert Clay, b 1854 in your data base, son of Henry T. Clay and Mary (????Colbert), let me know. I want to know why he's got that first name.  IF I'm right, Mary is missing daughter of Lemuel Colbert and Phebe Blankenship of Pittsylvania Co., Henry T. Clay b. 1800 VA d. aft 1870. They were married in 2 Aug 1838 Pike co KY.  However, I don't know how Mary would have gotten out there. There's got to be a reason for the Colbert Clay name.  This Henry T is the son of Masten Greenville Clay and _.  Mary may have been married to an Anderson before marrying Henry T. and that might be why she's in KY.  

Long story, but Lemuel Colbert and Phebe Blankenship were married in 1790 in Campbell Co VA, but quickly moved to Pittsylvania Co. The last record of Lemuel is in 1809 when one daughter married. There is no record of his death but in 1820 Phebe is the Head of household  in Pittsylvania Co with 5 male children, all b. after 1800.  It seems as if there had to be a number of children between 1790 and 1800, that Iím missing. Mary may well have been born in 1798 or 1802. Actually, her census age says 1812, and that's possible, but she's not in the family by 1820. Then again, neither is Lemuel.  I have a hunch her age is incorrect, but...just in case you know why the Colbert name, thought I'd ask. Any  help appreciated!

Also seeking information on a Colbert Clay from Texas.

Somewhere after all the jumble between Henry Clay, William Mitchell Clay, Pearce Clay and John Clay (in descending order), I come out as the great-great granddaughter of John's daughter Millie Ann Clay who married David Andrew Jackson Hester in Thomas County, GA Dec. 18, 1851.  My line continues through Angeline Hester Singletary > Warren Leon Singletary > Lavonia Singletary Tillis > Lisa Tillis Bable. Actually there's one more in the line too, my 2 year-old son, Kevin. Can anyone add to  this line?
