PAST GATHERINGS

CLAY FAMILY SOCIETY 2008

The fifth Gathering of the Clay Family was held in Huntsville, Alabama, June 20-22, 2008.  Huntsville, birthplace of Alabama!  Clement Comer Clay, his son Clement Claiborne Clay, and many others have called Huntsville and Madison County their homes.  We had a great time and missed all our Clay cousins that were unable to attend!!

CLAY FAMILY SOCIETY 2006  

June 2006 took us to Chester, Virginia for a three day Gathering. We were happy to see cousins that we had not seen for the two years since the last Gathering, and we met new cousins that joined us for their first time. We visited the cemeteries of Henry Clay, the elder who died in 1760, his son Rev. Eleazar Clay and grandson Phineas Clay. We heard the stories of the petrified man of Chesterfield County, the kidnapping of two Indian children by Henry Clay, and of the searches of our cousins.
