  • Notes 
    • (Research):Wilkinson Co newspaper abstract:
      Tues Aug 18, 1818
      Whereas Robert Clay and James Hatcher have applied to me for letters of administration on the estate of DAVID CLAY, deceased.

      Sept. 5 47 - 9t

      On the same page in the same column:

      Will be sold on the 22d of October next, all the personal property belonging to the estate of David Clay, deceased - consisting of horses, hogs, cattle, sheep, one waggon, two stills, plantation tools, corn, fodder and cotton - and household furniture. Terms of sale made known on the day.
      Ja's Hatcher )
      Robert Clay ) Adm'rs

      Tues April 27, 1819
      Will be sold on Saturday the 29th day of May next, at the late residence of DAVID CLAY, deceased, in Wilkinson County, the balance of the personal property of said deceased..consisting of cows and calves and one horse. Signed James Hatcher, Robert Clay, Adms.

      David's grave is easy to spot from the road - the directions are real good. About a mile from David's grave, on the right, is the Kinney- Branan cemetery with the other Clays. Then there are the 2 Clays in the Toomsboro Cemetery.

      I-16 is about 26 miles south of Toomsboro. Then David's grave is about 6 miles north of Toomsboro. Shouldn't be too much out of the way.

      From Toomsboro, go north on Hwy 112 for approximately 5-3/4 miles. Turn left on C. T. Lord (CR 142) and go 0.3 mile. The grave will be on your left on a rise.
