When I googled Clayton last name on google books there was a preacher who sent 2 sons to Georgia for missionary work. I guess to preach to us heathens here in the colonies. I dont recall seeing a name in the book excerpt and I am having a difficult time tracing my line back past 1828.But with what I like to call the Northern Claytons and the Southern Claytons all having the exact names but different years I bet its pretty safe to say that the two brothers once arrived did NOT both go down to Georgia as originally planned but one stayed up north while the other went to Georgia.
