    Notes 
    • 1828 Oct: Debtor or creditor to estate of James Bratton. [Bath Co Wills & Inventories p.148]

      1830 Dec: With brother Wm, bought part of estate of James Bratton. [Bath Co Wills & Inventories p.152] -- can't be father John cuz he died in 1824

      1836 Feb: Debtor or creditor to estate of Wm. Richards. [Bath Co Wills & Inventories p.174]

      Died at age 65 in Augusta Co. [An Old Pioneer: Ralph Clayton, from Margaret Black scrapbook] --That would make his death in 1857, which doesn't agree with the Craig or Dunlap data of 1849, or with the 1850 census, where he's missing, or with his estate records.
