Yes - we do seem to have the same Henry Clay (1843 - 1906). CSA records also seem to match.Our records show that he and his second wife were buried in Eastville, Baptist Cementery at Eastville, Ga. in Oconee County, Ga.Maybe there are two markers (since there were two wives and two lineages - married 2 times,. Five children by first wife After her death, married again and had three children) - or is there any question that Eastville and Bogart might refer to the same place?I would love to have a copy of yourpictures of the markers and the address / directions to the graveyard.
By our records, he was the son of HENRY Clay POSS Sr. and a CHEROKEE Woman (name, details UNKNOWN but I have a copy of a picture of her). The Cherokee woman disappeared and Henry Clay Sr. returned to the Oconee county area with his children.
