Sarah Jane Brown Clay
Posted by: R. Browne (ID *****2686) Date: February 15, 2011 at 14:36:50
  of 1954

My great grandmother was Sarah Jane Brown, a widow, who married Charles M. Clay, of Bedford County, Virginia, around 1870. The 1880 federal census shows them living in the Charlemont area. They had these children: Udora, James, Whittie, and Ida. My grandfather Robert and his brother Charles, the sons of Sarah, lived there. I'm hoping to find a Clay descendant, who may know where Sarah is buried, and any information about Sarah's life, perhaps even an obituary. I was told by a family member that years ago she and her husband actually visited the spot where Sarah was buried, which sounded like a small family cemetery. I presume it would have been in the Charlemont area. I'll appreciate any help. Robert B.
