Judge Alexander M Clayton, mid-1800s

Does anyone know what happened to the descendants of Alexander Mosby Clayton, state judge, official in the Confederacy, founder of the University of Mississippi at Oxford, and plantation owner? He had law offices in Holly Springs, Marshal County, but his plantation was near Lamar, Benton County.

A M Clayton had children: Mary, born about 1828, married William Hull and is said to have moved to Memphis; Arthur Clayton, born about 1835, went to U of Miss; and Clara, born about 1849.
