I am trying to determine who the parents of my GG-grandmother Clayton were as well as any other information you can provide for me: parents names, places of birth,death etc...any info will be welcome.
JANE EDWARDS McQUE was born in Virginia about 1821. It is possible that her father's name was DANIEL MCQUE. She was married to PHILIP SAMUEL CLAYTON on 24 Jan 1838 in Wheeling,VA. The marriage certificate had the last name spelled two different ways so it is possible that Jane was unable to write so the Minister attempted to spell her name as she pronounced it. The two spellings were McQUE and McLURE. It is also questionable if the "Edwards" actually belongs in her name. It could be her mothers maiden name or possibly a last name if she had been married previously. Since she was 17 at her marriage to Philip that is not likely.
Philip S. Clayton was born in April or May of 1815 in Culpepper VA. He died in 14 Jun 1882 in Muskingham Co,OH.
I have no information on Janes death.

Philip and Jane had several children. I do not have all the names however two of the girls ELIZABETH ANN b.Dec 19, 1837 in VA and LUCY ELLEN b.28 Sept 1845 in Muskingham Co,(Zanesvile?)Ohio married brothers. Elizabeth married WILLIAM HENRY MOORE,they eventually settled in PoplarBluff Missouri and had 9 children. Lucy married JOHN HESTIN MOORE and settled in Grants Pass, Oregon. They also had a large family.
If any of this comes close to fitting in with your family line please contact me via this site. I have more information on Jane's Moore grandchildren if that helps make a connection, Thank You
