I found a family tree for John Hampton Clay, son Bartow Caleb Clay posted athere:

This is what it had:
enter John Hampton Clay as name.
ID: I99037434
Name: BartowCalub CLAY
Given Name: BartowCalub
Surname: Clay
Sex: M
Birth: 2Jan1845 in Georgia
Death: 22Jan1947 in Houston,Harris,Tx.
Burial: 23July1947 South Park Cemetery,Pearland,Texas
Note: He was a bricklayer and traveled across several states doing his work.

Father: John Hampton CLAY b: 1824 in N.Carolina/Virginia
Mother: Mary Lee Jane COMBS Coombs b: 1Oct1825 in Georgia

Marriage 1 Tlitha WILLINGHAM b: 12Mar1844 in Alabama
Married: abt.1870
Alice Annie CLAY b: 28Feb.1881 in Georgia
Oscar Jasper CLAY
Bartow CLAY

It has Alice Annie Clay marrying James Harvey Flannery who was born April 11, 1865 in Coffeeville, Kansas.

Now, the birthdates for Bartow and Talithe do not match the 1900 Texas Census:
Barton Census dates:37, Jan 1863---family tree Jan 2, 1845
Talithe Census dates:38, Mar 1862---family tree Mar 1844
Barton 1910 census; age 50
Talithe 1910 census: 49
Bartow 1920 census: 57
Talithe 1920 census: 58
Bartow 1930 census: 69
Talithe 1930 census: 69
It's not unusal for census dates to be "off" but that's way to much--abt 18 years. Before you take the family tree as "gospel" some sources need to checked.

I can't find a Robert O; Bob; Bobby; R O; on either the 1900 or 1910 Ga or Texas census.

I love to "put the pieces together" and I can't with this family. It's a challenge.
