I find your web site very interesting. I would like to know if you could print what is on the metal plate of Henery Clay the Elder. I can't read it on the picture. Joyce Rasco Brandon cebljb@magiccablePC.com

What proof do we have that Charles Clay, son of John and Elizabeth (Frame?) had a middle name? In his day and age, a middle name was almost unheard of. Your site is the first place I've ever seen the name 'Charles Green Clay'. The Green family name does not come into the family until Henry, Charles and Amey married into the Seagull line. We are already aware of the error of 'John Thomas Clay'. Unless proof is available, I would strongly suggest that we should not assign middle names. Passing on questionable information to the generations that follow does no one a service. There's been enough of that sort of thing in the past which has led to the current crop of genealogists having to go back and make corrections - corrections that not everyone acknowledges on their web sites, thus keep- ing the mistakes going.

The entire inscription on the memorial outside the fence is this (all caps HENRY CLAY HENRY CLAY, THE ELDER, BORN 1672, CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, WAS THE GR. GRANDFATHER OF THE STATESMAN HIS TOMB, ONE FOURTH MILE EAST BEARS THE INSCRIPTION IN MEMORY OF HENRY CLAY WHO DIED AT DINNER WITH HIS CHILDREN AND GRANDCHILDREN AT AN ANNUAL FESTIVAL GIVEN ON AUGUST 3, 1760 PRESENTED BY RICHMOND CHAPTER COLONIAL DAMES OF THE 17TH CENTURY 1957 I have tried to place the inscription exactly as it is on the plaque. Note that they state that his tomb is "one fourth mile east" and was always hard to find until the Manchester High School was built. Now, the cemetery is very nicely situated in a clear area and off to the side of the entrance. I think that the memorial with the plaque must have been moved to its present location near the fence. It sounds as if you are going to make a real nice place in Pittsylvania County. I think that is where William Mitchell Clay sold land to Jessie. And that is where we found a reference saying that Wm. Mitchell Clay was giving land to Michael Clay. We told the Clerk at the Courthouse records room that we thought that Michael must be Mitchell. (Wm Mitchell's son). Sure enough, she found the document and it was Mitchell. I guess we have to ask a few questions, yea? Take care, Dee

I'm looking for the ancestors of Green Clay, abt 1831-1860, died at Paris, Bourbon Co., KY, married to Elizabeth Goodman (descendants also, but I haven't found any evidence of any beyond their two sons). Roger rgoodman@capaccess.org

Dear Gentle reader with the question of Charles Green Clay. Our Charles Green Clay was the son of Charles Clay and Martha Green, by the time that this Charles was born, middle names were coming into vogue. I believe you did not read far enough into the correction of our line, please go to the children of the 3rd. generation. We did not rename the son of John and Elizabeth, proper genealogists would shame us for ever. The title to the correction is Rev. Charles Green Clay of Bedford County, Va., son of Charles and Martha. Thank you for visiting us, come back often, Gynger Cook

We would like to apologise for the actions and words of some that use this guestbook, most of the Clay Family researchers we are in contact with are all very intelligent, upstanding, serious researchers, who have exhibited nothing but class, but as with all things there are a few that are not of this classification and feel it is necessasary to remind everyone that they are around. I feel very sorry that these actions are forced our readers and that it is being done by someone with a Clay background. Gynger Cook
