Clayton, Joseph W (b. 1805, d. ABT 1856)
Note: CENSUS:
It is simply speculative about Joseph's father being James Clayton. It seems possible but there are other possibilities.
We know from other sources that Joseph W Clayton was from the Barnwell District, Barnwell County area of SC.
It is thought by many that Isham Henry Clayton, born 1782 is possibly Joseph W's father and that he is a brother to Daniel Wilson Clayton, born 1801. They did have some land dealings together before they both moved to Lowndes County GA.
Another theory is a John Clayton being his father.

MILITARY:
CAPT. DAVID E. BRYAN’S COMPANY - LOWNDES COUNTY, GEORGIA 1838 - Georgia Militia
Source: THE SOUTH GEORGIA HISTORICAL AND GENEALOGICAL QUARTERLY, VOL. 1 July 1922, #3, pp. 08-09.
July 01, 1838 to 15th October 1838. Called out on a sudden emergency to repel Indian invasion in Lowndes County, Georgia:
Clayton, Isham
Clayton, John
Clayton, Jos. W.

DEEDS:
In Oct 1821 Joseph W and Daniel W Clayton purchased land and a plantation house from James Clayton in Barnwell District, SC. This is recorded at the Barnwell County Courthouse in Barnwell, SC index number N89. This would be an indication that Daniel W and Joseph W are perhaps brothers, or at least were close cousins. The land was situated beside the Little Saltkatcher Swamp and bordered on the other sides by land belonging to Will Peters and James Clayton and Springtown Road.

DEEDS:
In August 1831 Daniel W Clayton sold land to Joseph Jeter and James Jeter Clayton, both sons of Vanda Clayton. Vanda was a son of James Clayton, the same who sold land to Daniel W and Joseph W Clayton in 1821. This was witnessed by Joseph W Clayton, so both Daniel W and Joseph W Clayton were still in Barnwell District at that time.

NOTE:
The Florida Clayton connection to Barnwell District, SC - compiled 050130 rev. 061012
This is written by Kenneth Clayton LeDuc. My mother was Lily Sue Clayton , daughter of Frazier C. Clayton. Frazier C. Clayton was son of William J. Clayton ; who was son of Joseph W. Clayton.
Joseph W.(b.1805,d.1858 ) and Harriet (maiden name unknown) Clayton, my Great-great-grandparents, transferred their church membership from the Bethsaida Church, Barnwell District, SC, to Old Union Primitive Baptist near Lakeland, Lanier Co., GA. Lakeland is 40 miles north of Statenville and 20 miles NE of Valdosta. They then transferred to form a new congregation at Apahoochee Meeting House, Echols County, GA, about 1836.. This information was taken from "The Chinkypin" News published by Dorothy (Mrs. Leroy) Price of Statenville, Echols Co., GA. In addition to Joseph W. Clayton, Isham H. Clayton (b.1782,d.1865) and John G. (T.?) Clayton (b.1795,d.?) came to this area from Barnwell and all three served with the militia against the marauding Seminoles coming across from Florida in 1838. I suspect that Isham H. and John G. were brothers. Isham H. could have been Joseph W.’s father ; since there were 23 years between them ; they may have been brothers ; or uncle and nephew. There was also a Daniel W. Clayton (b.1801, d.1891), possible J. W.’s brother or cousin, in the Statenville area. Joseph W. moved to Jefferson County, Florida and died there.
Chronologically :
1742 - Reverend Giessendanner performed the marriage in Orangeburgh, SC, of John Cleaton (Clayton) (born Europe?), son of (unknown parents), and Sirrah Hatcher Fuster, widow, in the Church of Orangeburgh. Sirrah was probably the Daughter of Seth Hatcher (b.1686, d.1756), and Elizabeth (last name unk.)(d.1748) . Rev. Giessendanner also baptized John & Sirrah(Sarah) Hatcher Clayton’s first seven children : Sirrah Clayton (b.04/30/1750), John Clayton (b.10/25/1751) , William Clayton (b.12/18/1752), Issom Clayton (b.11/14/1754), James Clayton (b.1756) , Abraham Clayton (b.04/11/1758) , and Jane Clayton (b.11/19/1759) ; Rev. Paul Turquand baptized their 8th child ; Jacob Clayton b.09/08/1770. Rev. Giessendanner also baptized the following Claytons of unknown parents : John Clayton on 10/14/1758 (son of ?? , b. ?, ) and Isham Clayton on 09/07/1760 (son of ?? , b.??); Tobias Hartzog (Hertzog) was suret at the baptism. Note: In 1764 Hertzog was granted 100 acres on the north fork of the Edisto River at Water’s Pond. www.xs4all.nl/~sail/orange/01-28.html

1778, January 16th, Isham Clayton who wrote his will "being very sick" at his "Fishpond Plantation" in St. Paul’s Parrish , Colleton District, listing wife, Anna, Sons: James, Isham, George, and Joseph; Daughters: Sarah, Anna, Mary, and Rebeckah. He names Isham Clayton as executor. I found that Fishpond Plantation was near the forks of the Edisto River.
1781 Edmund Jones (wife Mary) mentioned Isham Clayton as "brother" in his the will.
1785 , Abraham Clayton of St. Bartholemew’s Parish, Colleton Co., wrote his will leaving his Plantation to his wife (unknamed), and names sons’ Ishem and James, under age. Executor, John Clayton.
1795 John Clayton, Charleston Town District, planter wrote his will mentioning wife, Elizabeth, and children; John, Sarah, Elizabeth, and James George. Wit. David Clayton.
1796 Samuel Riggs, St. George’s Parish, Charleston Dist., will was wit. by John and David Clayton.
1797 David Clayton, Charleston District Planter, wrote his will leaving his estate to wife, Sarah.
1798 - Barnwell District was formed from Orangeburgh District.
1798 - George Mackinfuss, St. George’s Parish Planter, mentioned daughter Jemimah and husband John Clayton in will.
1800 Barnwell District, South Carolina, census showed only John Clayton as head-of-household
1810 Barnwell District, South Carolina, census showed Joseph (over 45), James (26-44), and Vander (16-25) Clayton
1812 - War of, service of South Carolina Claytons : Isham H. (pvt, Rowe’s Regt.); John L., (musician, Rowe’s Regt.), and Warren, (pvt, Austin’s Regt.)
1820 Barnwell District, South Carolina, census showed Isom E.(Isom H.?)(over 26), James (16-26), James T. (>46), John (16-26, or >46), and V.C.N.G. (NDNG?) (16-24), Clayton.
1830 census showed John (50-59), John (30-39), Jonas (30-39), V.D.J.(30-39), G.W.(20-29), and V.D.J.(30-39) as heads-of-housholds. Thomas M. Clayton points out that the G. W. in the 1830 census seems to correlate to our J. W. Clayton in that our J. W. was born in 1805, his age and his wife’s age agree with those on the census as well as his two children who fit the ages on the census. Further extension of this logic suggests that J. W. ‘s father was James Clayton and that his James’ father was Joseph Clayton.

1840 Barnwell District, South Carolina census showed V.D.V.J. and Jonas remaining in Barnwell with some newcomers.
1840 - Lowndes County, Georgia census showed the households of Isham Clayton and Joseph W. Clayton as head-of-households. Joseph W.’s household showed an older man - his father ? her father ? Lowndes County was the parent of Echols County. The 1850 census of Lowndes County, GA, showed the households of: Isham H., Isham D., Daniel W., and John G. Clayton. Joseph W. had gone to Florida ; Jefferson County.
1897 Bamberg County splits from the SE corner of Barnwell County taking the Fishpond district and the forks of the Edisto with it. The County Seat is Bamberg. Can the Bethsaida Church cemetary still exist ?
I have come across many Isham, Ishem, Issom, Isom, Joseph, James, John and William Claytons, etc., in the genealogical records in South Carolina and Georgia in the period between 1740 and 1840. It is extremely difficult to tie together the relationships. I haven’t succeeded; but, I do believe that the John Cleaton (Clayton), who married Sirrah Hatcher Fuster in or about 1742 is our ancestor. He is probably my Great8 Grandfather. I have not positively traced back further than Joseph W. Clayton, my great-great-grandfather, and his son, William J. Clayton, my Great-grandfather.

Subject: Re: Joseph W. Clayton & descendants

This is the information I received from another researcher:

Hello Lynn

My Clayton connection is not a direct one but I have still made an effort to
sort them out because of their connections to my Brooke family.
Isham H. Clayton was the third husband of my ggggrandmother Susannah.
Susannah was the daughter of John Prior of England and his common-law wife Eve
Grubbs. Susannah had siblings Tobias, William and Elizabeth. John Prior
also had a son John who came to S.C. after his father's death to manage the
old man's estate and also became guardian of the four younger children.
John Prior, Sr. had also left a wife and a couple of daughters in England.

Susannah's first Husband Samuel Jeter died 1808 and one of their daughters,
Levinia married John T. Clayton who was born about 1795. Levinia died in
S.C. and John also moved to Lowndes County GA with his daughter Susannah P.
Clayton. I do not know the parents for this John T. Clayton but he would
have been a contemporary of your Joseph W. Clayton... perhaps a brother.

Susannah's other daughter by Samuel Jeter was Eliza who married John Allen.
They too came to Lowndes Co.

Susannah's Second Husband was Thomas Brooke son of Thomas Brooke of Maryland
and his wife Ann Dicks. The younger Thomas and Susannah had Three Daughters
and my ggg grandfather Thomas Tobias Brooke. The eldest of these daughters
was Elizabeth who married Daniel Wilson Clayton, again they also moved to
Lowndes County GA. The youngest Daughter Sarah married Jessie P. Prescott
and the third daughter was, Almina, whose given name I learned only last
year in some old documents held by one of my Brooke cousins in Volusia County
Florida. I have not yet found any additional information on Almina Brooke.

Daniel Wilson Clayton was born in 1801 and may have been a brother to both
John T. Clayton and your Joseph W. Clayton. I suspect they may be sons of
Isham H. Clayton by a first marriage but other than a strong hunch and all
these folks moving from Barnwell Co.S.C. to Lowndes Co. GA all about the
same time. It would not have been unusual for the two brothers to have married
half sisters. Since they were all young at the time Susannah and Isham were
married about 1821 in Barnwell they probably were raised together as a large
blended family for at least a few years before their marriages and before
the family moved to Lowndes.

Sorry no proof yet but that is my theory. I understand the Lowndes County
court house burned (just our luck) and there is no will or estate record for
Isham Henry Clayton that would easily prove this. I loose track of Susannah
after about 1851 when Isham published a disclaimer in a newspaper stating
that she had left his household and that he would not be responsible for any
of her debts. I suspect she may have moved in with one of the daughters but
have not had time to confirm that either. Hopefully I can find her someday
in the census for 1860 but she may well have died before then. Too many
puzzles here.

Let me know if you have any clues to confirm or even dispute any part of
this relationship theory. If we keep digging something might eventually turn up.

Candy

This is my response to her:

Thanks for your response to my email. After years of searching, this is the
most promising lead I've had.

A little more information about Joseph W. Clayton:

He was born in SC (perhaps Barnwell County?) in 1805. Around 1828 he
married Harriet A. ? (b. 1807 in SC). Their son William A. (or J.) was born
in SC in 1829, their daughter Rebecca A. in 1830, and their son Marion in
1833. Some time between 1833 and 1836 Joseph W. Clayton and his family
emigrated to Lowndes County, GA. Their son John J. was born there in 1836,
their son Daniel M. in 1838, and their son Delamar M. in 1840. In the 1840
federal census for Lowndes County, GA, Joseph Clayton was listed as head of
a household with the following people in it: 3 males <5 (John J., Daniel
M., and Delamar M.), 2 males 5-10 (Marion and possibly William A.?), a male
30-40 (Joseph W.), a female 10-15 (Rebecca A.), a female 30-40 (Harriet A.),
plus two people I haven't been able to explain, a male 40-50 and a female
5-10. Could these two folks be John T. Clayton and his daughter Susannah P.
Clayton? When were they born?

In 1841, Joseph and Harriet had a son, my ancestor Anguish Butler Clayton,
who supposedly was born just outside of or near Valdosta (the county seat of
Lowndes County). In 1843 their son Clayborn Sidney (Sydney) was born.
Sometime right after that Joseph W. Clayton and family moved to Jefferson
County, FL. Jefferson County is near Lowndes County -- it is the county
just east of Leon County FL where Tallahassee is located. Joseph W. Clayton
voted in an election in Jefferson County 26 May 1845, which meant he had to
have been living in Jefferson County for at least 6 mos., and in FL for at
least two years. In Jefferson County Joseph and Harriet had two more
children: Rosanna A. (AKA Rocksey, Roxanne) in 1846 and Jefferson in 1848.
In the 1850 federal census for Jefferson County, all of the kids listed
above appeared (this is where I determined their date and place of birth),
except for Sydney who was living a couple of families away with Seth B.
Smith and his wife Eleanor and their children Versenoy, Mary A., Josephine,
Shadrock, Sophronia, Narcissa, and Rachael (I can provide birth year and
state for all these folks if you are interested).

Joseph W. Clayton apparently died between 1850 and 1860, as his wife shows
up alone with the younger kids in the 1860 census.

Harriet A. ? Clayton was listed as being unable to read and write in the
1850 but not the 1860 census. Apparently she died some time after 1860,
possibly before 1870, as I have been unable to find her after the 1860
census. The FL census for 1870 was so horrible that I can't find many folks
who appear in the 1880 census, but I haven't been able to find Harriet after
that date.

The Clayton boys did not fare well in the Civil War. Daniel M., Delamar M.,
and Clayborn Sidney all died during the war, Daniel in a federal prison. My
ancestor Anguish Butler contracted dysentery at the beginning of the war,
almost died, later rejoining his unit. Apparently he suffered on and off
from the effects of that dysentery the rest of his life, eventually dying in
1887 (I did some quick and dirty research on this and it is possible for
amebic dysentery to have these effects). I think John J. was taken prisoner
and went blind during the war.

Anguish Butler Clayton married Victoria A. Brickle (her parents were from
SC) and they had several children, including my grandfather, Orlando John
Clayton. Orlando married Virgie Andrews (three of her grandparents were
from SC) and one of their daughters, Marjorie May Clayton, is my mother.
All of these folks were in Jefferson County FL, some in Leon Co. first for a
little while. Incidentally, Virgie Andrews' mother was Florida Grubbs, her
parents were John Wesley Grubbs (b. Camden County GA) and Rebecca Kinsey (b.
SC). John's parents were Benjamin H. Grubbs (b. SC) and Mary Ann ? Bolton
(b. GA). I think Rebecca's parents were Joseph F. Kinsey and Caroline M.
Stanley, both b. in SC.

Even though I now live in SC I have been unable to definitively connect my
Jefferson County folks with their siblings or ancestors in SC.

I want to study your email some more and look through my notes so I will
send more information later. I am attending a family reunion in Madison
County in a couple of weeks and plan to allocate a day to do research in
Lowndes County, GA, which is on the way. If you have any suggestions as to
what I might try to accomplish there re: Claytons, etc., please feel free to
suggest!

Thanks again for your response, Lynn

(Lynn again) Meanwhile I am comparing the information Candy provided with
the notes I have on SC and GA censuses. Will keep you posted -- Lynn

Email received in March 2009 from Clayton Rhodes:
I believe I can add to what you have on the Orangeburgh, SC, Claytons. I am a descendant of Isham Clayton who left the 1778 will. He had the Fishpond Plantation and his wife was Anna. Some sources say she Anne Faure, daughter of Peter Faure. Their son James was born in 1758 and a son Isham in 1760. The others mentioned in the will were born later. James (d. 1827) married Elizabeth ???. Their son Vanda Vastine Jamison Clayton (-1790-1856) married Sarah Jeter. Vandy and Sarah were my gg grandparents on my father's side and my ggg grandparents on my mother's side.
James Clayton administered the will of Isham Clayton and handled the settlement of his mother's estate in 1804. I have the documents.
I live in Savannah, GA and have visited Barnwell Courthouse a number of times.
I believe the Claytons came to SC from VA. There is a record of the 1727 baptism of Isham Clayton in the Bristol Parish records and later of his "adoption" by William Clay after having been orphaned.
These Orangeburgh/Barnwell Claytons are hard to sort out. I have had many queries about Joseph W. Clayton and Daniel W. Clayton.
Isham Clayton (d. 1778) had a brother John and it is not clear in most cases who are Isham's descendants and who are John's descendants. Many of the Barnwell Claytons left for SC and FL in the early to mid 1800s.
I can share information with you if you want.

There was no Barnwell County until about 1798. Our Claytons lived in what was old Orangeburgh District. This area was settled mostly by Swiss-German immigrants which came over at the invitation of the SC colony starting in the 1730s to settle the back country. There were some non Swiss German families there as well. The Orangeburgh German Swiss Genealogical Society has a good website. They used to have a profile on the Clayton family. The family first appears in the records of Rev. Giesendanner, minister to the community, in the 1750s. A John Clayton and an Isham Clayton were first mentioned. John Clayton married the widow Sarah Hatcher and had a number of children including an Isham born Nov. 14, 1754. John and Sarah had a son James born (or baptized) on Jan. 17, 1756. This from the Giesendanner records published as part of "The History of Orangeburg County, South Carolina" by A. S. Salley, Jr.
The older Isham Clayton, apparently brother of John, is of most interest to me. He is mentioned a number of times in the above mentioned book as a witness or suret at events such as baptisms, etc. Also mentioned at the same time is Anne Faure. Then the record shows "James, son of Isham and Anne Clayton; born September 5, 1758, Suret Peter Faure, Lewis Netman and Mary Faure". This is my James Clayton. Some have assumed that he married Anne Faure. His will mentions his wife "Anna".
The records in the book also show "On Sunday, September 17, in Orangeburgh Church, Isham, Son of Isham and Anne Clayton; born May 10, 1760. Suret Henry Felder, Tobias and Mary Hertzog.
The recurring name Isham in this family has led to a lot of confusion. Some of the children of John and Sarah Clayton named their children Isham which must have been a family name. This has left us wondering who was the father of Isham whose family moved to South GA and FL. James, born 1758, son of Isham, d. 1778, married an Elizabeth, some say Elizabeth Feasler (unproven). I know that they had a son Vanda Vastine Jamison Clayton, born ~1789-90 who died in 1856. This is my line. James and Elizabeth had a number of other children but I have never been able to determine exactly who they were. Isham, James' brother born in 1760 apparently married also. I have seen the name Joseph W. Clayton and Daniel W. Clayton in reference to those who moved to GA and FL but do not know if they were sons of James, Isham or from the John Clayton family.
John and Sarah Clayton's Isham and his brother William were killed by Tories during the American Revolution according to a letter written by Middleton Clayton in 1926. I was in contact with a David Clayton in Charleston who said he was not from the Orangeburgh Claytons but was related to Middleton Clayton. I told him that Middleton was clearly of the Orangeburgh Claytons We never resolved that to his satisfaction. Some of the descendants of William Clayton, killed in the Revolution, moved to Mississippi in the early 1800s. I have been in contact with some of them in the past. Middleton Clayton's line was later associated with Dorchester District, neighboring Barnwell. I believe he was from the John and Sarah Clayton line.
If you will give me your mailing address, I will send you some material that you may find interesting. I find your research on the census to be very interesting. I have not examined these closely since I know my line. Maybe we can narrow things down a bit. I will send some material from the book we published a few years back "Our Clayton Family, The Descendants of Vandy Clayton" . My mother's maiden name was Clayton and my father's grandmother was Martha Clayton, granddaughter of James Clayton, born 1728. My mother's great grandfather was Jesse Javis Clayton, brother of Martha Clayton Rhodes.
Also tell me again the name of the church from which your Clayton family came in SC. I may be able to find exactly where that church was in Barnwell District. and may give us some hints.

Note:
Nancy, another rule of genealogy research is : don't trust a compilation unless it references the source; hopefully, one that can be verified !
In 1994 I spent an afternoon in the Huxford genealogy library in Homerville, GA. It was founded by judge Folks Huxford to house his collection of "wiregrass " Georgia pioneer genealogy. Much of the collection is on 5x7 cards written in his own hand. Isham H. Clayton, son of Isham, born 1782 in S.C., died 11 June 1865; married about 1825 in Barnwell District, S.C., to Mrs Sussanah Brooks, a widow, the mother of Mrs J. P. Prescott. Moved to Lowndes County about 1835 and settled near Ocean Pond. Served in Capt. D. R. Bryan's company of militia 1 July to 15 October 1838. Children were : Forma (b.1823 SC), Jackson (1827 SC), and Duncan (b.1829 SC)
This differs markedly from the record of Lori Ann Howell Miller whose site you sent me. Lori Ann lists Isham H. Clayton's offspring as : Daniel W. Clayton, John G. Clayton, and Joseph W. Clayton ! !
Judge Huxford lists those three men separtely and questions their paternity; oops, that didn't sound quite right ; Huxford questions who their fathers were: James, Isham, George , or Joseph ?
I tried to look up an address or 'phone number for Lori Ann Howell Miller or her husband, Elmer J. Miller, with no success; I did find her mother, Willa D. Howell, at 133 Son Clayton Road, Lake Park, GA 31636; (229) 559-7385. I will get around to writing her.

CONNECTION TO KINSEYS NOTE: This is now proven as of June 2014. A death record was located by Nancy Slade of her daughter Roxanna Clayton Standley Townsend and her parents are listed as Joe Clayton and Harriet Kinsey. I found some trees on Ancestry.com that placed Harriet as a Kinsey and the same Harriet that married Joseph W Clayton. Other trees showed her as a Kinsey but no information about her marriage. It seems plausible since many of the Kinsey brothers and a sister came to Florida in Jefferson County early about 1820. Harriet married Joseph and they eventually made it to Jefferson County FL about 1843. She might have been their sister and that eventually brought them to Florida in the same township as the Kinsey's.

OBIT:
1887 ORIGINAL NEWSPAPER OBITUARY for Anguish Butler Clayton (Obituary quoted exactly as recorded from the newspaper clipping, partially
tattered)
  "CLAYTON  Bro. [Brother] Butler Clayton died near Aucilla Station, Fla., Aug. 25, 1887; was born in Lowndes County, March 14th, 1841; was married to a daughter of John Brickle near Lloyd[Florida].  He leaves a wife and six children to [mou]rn his loss.
   Bro. Clayton is well known [in the]community.  Naturally quiet and [un]obtrusive in manner-a farmer by trade-one of those quiet workers at home as well as in the church, you would never know his deeds.  They are recorded in heaven.  He was ever ready to do duty in church and State.  When the bugle sounded in 1860 for war as a faithful soldier, he shouldered his musket, and put on his armour , and served his country unswervingly, till its close, and then rounded his weapons of warfare, and has ever since followed the quiet, rural life of a farmer, till the Master called him to put on the wedding garment, for lo!  "the bridegroom cometh,"  "go ye out to meet him!"
and as a soldier of the cross he cheerfully resigned the post of honor in the church to join the redeemed, to shout and sing allaluiah to him who liveth forever."  J. S.Barnett.

Information from the LDS data bank says he was married in 1877, and born in 1843.

According to information from documents that Nancy Slade provided I discovered a second marriage for Rosanna (Roxanna) that I was unaware of. A search of census records discovered a Roxanna Townsend born in 1846 (a match) as wife of a Thomas Townsend which matches with the marriage info from the documents. It is not absolutely for sure but I think this is a match. I am not sure what happened to her first husband Hillary Standley as after the marriage record from Jefferson County in 1862 he disappears. Perhaps he died during the rest of the war. He was released in Apr 1862 from service in the CSA military. He might have reentered the war and died or died later of disease or injury from the war. Either way he probably died before 1870 when Roxanna would have married Thomas Townsend.

I saw your listing on the Family Tree Magazine site. Joseph Clayton is my
gg-grandfather. Joseph> Jefferson B.> Clanton Mallory> Mary Jo> Mary Jo
Sanders, now Mary Jo Walker. Jefferson was born in FL, as those following
him. My mother's father died in 1923 and she remembers very little about him.
I went to the genealogy society in Jefferson Co., Fl and found in a file the
name of William Clayton listed as the father of Joseph. Have you any info
about this? It listed Warren, Stephen, and John as his brothers. The
brother's of Joseph were listed as, Stephen, Phillip, John, William Jr., and
Carter.
I know that there were siblings of Clant, but not sure of their names.
Would love to know if you have any other info.

Martha filed for CSA Pension with Florida 27 Feb 1897. Pension application states John died 17 Dec 1896. He was blind and application states he died of complications concerning the blindness/desease. This is thus far the last known record of her. Since she is not in the 1900 US Census it is probable she died before that census.
