My Great Grandfather was named William Platt, but we think his original name was Clements. There was a James Platt who lived in Screven County Georgia in the early 1800's who had a mistress in Savannah by the name of Jannett (or Janett) Clements. She had four children by him. They were Johathan, James, Charles, and William. It is very possible that the James Clements you are researching is the same as this one and that William Clements took the name of his father, Platt. Problem is, none of this has been proven yet.
