  1. Charlie Martin, a little history of your hometown!

  2. Hey thank you Reeves-I am a history buff and I tell people all of the time that Clayton is liked Mayberry on Andy Griffith!

    1. We have hand hewn beams from a one room schoolhouse originally built on McSwain Creek Road. I’m interested in the history of it. Can you help me?

  3. That’s the way we think of Abbeville too, Mayberry! I thought you would appreciate the article on Clayton, Charlie!

  4. I was partlyraised around Clio, Elamville..Best place in the world to grow up..Pure awesome country.

  5. Jennifer Nicole Mccall Gatlin read this! There’s a McCall listed in there.

    1. I think all are McCalls mostly came from Arkansas I think but the moved so much who knows

    2. I see they had a need to get around some lol

    3. It said Alexander McCall and I think when I was doing ancestry.com he was someone listed that could be a relative and he was a Confederate soldier.

  6. Anne Hook Lewis Nancy Hook Auel Donna Porter Maggie Smith Our Edge forefather, Eli (Crick) Edge (b. 1825) was listed on the 1850 census as a resident of Barbour County, AL. I didn’t see any Edge’s listed in the article but interesting nonetheless.

    1. Yes it is interesting

    2. Wow. Thanks for sharing. I didn’t know we had a “Crick” in our heritage. That’s what we call my eldest son, Christopher.

  7. Trivia history: Demopolis, AL. was founded in 1817 in Marengo County by the French soldiers from Napolean’s Army who came by boat to Mobile, and then up the Tombigbee River. They saw the white river bluffs and stopped. I live on Desnouettes Ave. which is named after Colonel Desnouettes(pronounced – Day-New-Ette)… The French started in Demopolis the “Vine & Olive” Colony.

  8. I was born in Clayton. I have a cookbook given by Mrs. H. S Buster, 135 Dallas Avenue, to my mother upon my birth because my mother did not know how to cook.

  9. Born in Clio, 1947

  10. Born in Clio, 1947.

  11. I just visited Clayton and Eufaula and loved them both! They are truly the old South. Beautiful homes, friendly and helpful people and such clean towns. If you are ever there be sure to visit Miss Eva’s. The very best down home cooking!

  12. Wanda Robinson, be sure Suzanne sees this.

    1. Susan Cunningham I sure will Susan

  13. Greetings,
    I am trying to locate family members of F. T. Thomas born 6/9/1922. I was only 3 years old when he passed and have no memory of my father. I am seeking a photo of him to experience a memorable moment.

    Take care,

    Dr. Armon Thomas Copeland
