The Clays of Alabama

Over the past five years I have slowly collected information/resources related to Clement Claiborne Clay and his wife Virginia Tunstall Clay.  As I collected this information I was discouraged because there was not one central location for all of the information.  Well, this is where this site comes in.  I will not claim to have all of their information here, but I will probably have more that any other Website.

Please, please , please, if you have any information in reference to C.C. Clay Jr. or Virginia Clay I need you help.  I have provided contact information below.  Please forward me anything you have or know about (pictures, references, papers, letters, etc.)
Thank you.
