Having been two years since this post, do you still need this information? Caroline and Amanda were raised as sisters in Stanford and Louisa Clayton home. Caroline was the daughter of James Thomas Clayton. Amanda was the daughter of Stanford Clayton, or quite possibly Wiley Clayton as she was born 1862 and Wiley died 1863. Stanford married first Wileys widow and then J.Thomas' widow and this created a real mixup in families. And they, Stanford and Louisa then had 5 children of their own. Kind of like todays families his, hers, ours.
