  • Notes  Married:
    • A marriage record book with an index for Wilkinson County, GA lists a marriage between Edmund Clay and "Sallie" Jones. However, the county courthouse burned in 1854, and this record was destroyed. The Wilkinson County courthouse confirms that the marriage records are missing from 1828-1865. Those earlier and later than these two dates are on file.
