Hi:Back in the 1960's my brother Jim and I got into tracing the Clanton family history and visited many libraries and traveled throughout the south visiting the areas and Clanton kin where they lived in the old days and writing down the info we found. Unfortunately, we were doing this for our own records not thinking at the time that folks mifgt ask where we got it and didn't write the sources for the info we gathered. Was just a hobby for us to do. So I am sorry that I can't say where the info came as to where we found Mary Clanton Lynes as a daughter to Holt Clanton. It is possible it came from a will for Holt (if he left one) or some other court house record or a book on that part of the family. We looked through our papers for a clue to a source on Holt Clanton's family, but can't find where we got it. I would possibly check Columbia County, Georgia records where Holt died in 1829.
