States: Tennessee: Wilson
I am looking for information on John F. Clay who married Harriet Andrews in Wilson Co., TN on Sept. 26, 1831. There is another John Clay in Wilson Co. at the same time. He married Martha Davis on Oct. 10 1831. I don't know if there is any relationship between these two. My problem has been figuring out who John F's parents are. We suspect that it is Edward Clay who married Polly Watkins. John F had a daughter named Rebecca Ann "Watkins" Clay. This makes sense as people often used names from their mother in naming thier children. Family tradition has it that John F was a cousin to Henry Clay the politician. Henry's father, John, had a brother named Edward. From what I could find on the LDS site, this Edward married a Magdaline Treabue(sp). I believe Edward and Magdaline had a son named Edward Jr. and this is the Edward who is the father of my John F. Does anyone have something that can help me?
