Andrew Clements, b. abt. 1780 S.C. died bef. 1850 in Russell Co.,Al. is thought to have descendants in Ala., Arl., Calif., Ga., Miss., & Texas.His first wife was Nora Mae ( Noomay/Naomi) Payne who he married 14 DEc. 1805 in Tattnall Co.,Ga.We do not know when this first wife died and he marrired Catherine.Records show that Andrew Clements was in Gwinnett Co.,Ga(burned reords) in 1820 and 1830.He was in old Benton(now Calhoun) Co., Al. in 1840.We know he was in Russell County in April 1844 when Andrew and Catherine gave consent for their daughter Aspa Ellender Clements to marry Richard Jarrell which indicates that she was under age at the time.Andrew's occupation is not know because he died prior to the 1850 census.No Will or land ownership records can be found in Russel Co., Al.However, he did own land in old Benton County, Al. in 1840 and in 1805 Andrew drew a blandk inthe Geoirgia Lottery from Screvens County,Ga.He drew again in the 1827 Ga. Lottery from Gwinett County,Ga..The drew Lot #326, Dist. 3, Sect.4.This land was located in Coweta Co.,Ga.He wasted not time in selling the land there.In 1832 he drew land while he was living in Gwinett Co.,Ga.He drew 40 acres of land, LKand Lot 733, 2nd Land Dist.,Sect. 1.This land was located in Forsyth Co., Ga.No record has been found of when he sold this land or if he ever moved there.Andrew is shown as a defaulter in the Gwinett Tax REcords of 1824-1826.The 1830 census shows he was still living in Gwinett Co.,Ga.
Catherine Clements, widow of this Andrew is shown as age 53 (b.1796/97).In her house is are her two sons and their wives, William W. Clements, age 25, b. Ga., his wife Eliza., age 22, granddaughter GeorgiaA. age 2, b. Al., franddaughter Virginia, age 1, b. Al., Son Jacob age 18 and his wife Jemima Wood Clements, age 20, b. Ga.Daughter Mariah Clements Allred and her husband Hansord Allred are living 2 doors away.
The names of Andrew's children by his first wife have not been proven except from circumsantial evidence.James E. Clements, b. 1813 GA. is thought to be one of them.James marriedMaryann Elizabeth Petersin Carroll Co.,Ga. in 1838 and moved to TAllapoosa Co., Al. before 1846.He named no children Andrew but did name a son David Hansford (after his supposed 1/2 sister Mariah's husband David Hansford Allred) and he named his last daughte Mariah.Other supporting evidence is that the bondsman for Doc Erly Clements(son of James E.) was a John Foster, son-in-law of Mariah Clements Allred.The death certificate of Samantha Jain Clements(dau.of James E.Clement) shows her parents to be James E. Clements and Maryann Allred.The info was given by Samantha's husand and is in error.Samantha's mother was Maryann Peters but this shows that they knew the Allreds.
