Re: What cemetery was Jesse Clay Buried in?
The Jesse Clay that is buried in Clay Cemetery in Kirkwood
was born about 1792.His wife's name was Jane.He and his wife and son Green B. Clay are buried in unmarked graves.
Cleveland Clay was his son and is buried in Clay Cemetery in a marked grave.
Jesse and Jane Clay's daughter Elizabeth Jane Clay Collier was my G. Grandmother.Cleveland Clay and William Thomas Collier (my G. Grandfather) were in the civil war along with other Clay and Collier men.As far as I know they did not have a son named Royal?There was a Royal Clay in DeKalb County and he is buried I think at Ousley Chapel, where my mother and her parents are buried.
I think Jesse and Jane had other sons and daughters.Jesse F. Clay and John Clay.Sometimes it is confusing which were Jesse's Sons and which were nephews.
The Jesse Clay that was married to Miriam Royal I think died in Jasper County Georgia.They were older and I thought maybe they might have been my Jesse's parents?
