Dear Mr. Eckhardt,
I just happened upon your query re: David C. Clayton. How positive are you about your facts? I am assuming Zachariah would be from whom you descend? I have had access to quite a bit of Clayton material including work a man worked on for about 50 years. Do you know any more about David other than what you have printed? I find no will listed for a David C. in Monmouth County unless he died after 1900.
There was more than one Clayton family in NJ, one came in with William Penn and the other to Rhode Island and down to NJ.
My library is in a bit of an upheavel at the moment as I have moved most of it and it is not where I am presently living. I have not checked the census for the names yet. Have you done this to narrow down where they were living? David is a common name in the Clayton family. I do have a record of a David C. but he is not yours. I have no record of a Zachariah, Grandin or Morris.
Have you ever looked in the NJ Genealogical Magazines for church or cemetery records?
Where did you get the name of Elizabeth for his wife? Might she have been a second wife?
Pat Ely
