Francis K. Clanton, parents unknown, born about 1805 somewhere in Virginia (1850 census)and married May 14, 1840 in Austin, Texas to Patience Whitaker, born June 1820 Tennessee. They were living 1850 in Walker County, Texas. Francis died prior to 1900 when Patience resided with son John in Houston County, TX. Patience died Feb 12, 1912. They had children named Oliver (b. 1841); Sarah (b. 1844); Horton (b. 1847) and John H. (born Sept 1853). John H. married Sarah Grounds and had children: Harvey Douglas Clanton (1878-1939); Mary Lorena (born 1881 in Crockett, Houston County, Texas, married there December 23, 1897 to William Newton Ferguson); and John W. Clanton (91890-1938). Does anyone have info on this family or who the parents of Francis K. Clanton were?Thanks.Tom.
