Susan, I tried to respond to your posting but my e-mail keeps getting bounced back.Could you please e-mail me at Cheryl_Long@gamd.uscourts.gov and then I'll just hit the reply button and respond to you that way.
In the meantime, thank you for responding to my posting.How exciting -- a new cousin!!I, too, have only been researching my Clay/Akers line for a short while (off and on for maybe less than a year), so I have some information but generally have a number of holes to fill.
From which branch of the Zilpha and Caleb Clay tree do you descend?I descend from their son Elswick Clay (b. Oct. 3, 1831, d. Jan. 18, 1916), who married Nancy Jane Mills (b. Sept. 25, 1837, d. Nov. 13, 1940!) and produced my great-grandfather James Milton Clay (b. Oct. 23, 1871, d. June 21, 1959).
