DISCLAIMER: I have worked on this family off and on for 13 years. My gr.gr.gr.Grandmother was Jane P. CLOPTON. Have NOT found proof that Guy Kitrell Clopton is the father of Jane and Martha. But according to the 1820 census he was a little older than these ladies. Was he a brother? All three were in Roane County, Tennesee approximately the same time. Then Guy is found in Rutherford County, TN in 1820 age being 45 plus years. Did this family come from New Kent County, Virginia. It is stated that Martha came from New Kent County. But I can NOT make a connection to anyone there. Any help would be appreciated. Would also love to know more about the McAffrey family. This is everything that I have! Wanda
