~~~NOTE~~~~
I know my Great Grandfather
Levi Ranson Clayton enlisted
in the Cherokee Legion State Guards
out of Cherokee County, Canton Georgia
on 7-22-1865. Made 5th Sgt. 11-9-1863
and was detailed from the Civil War
in 1-1-1864, to run his Grist Mill
for the Soldiers.

Levi's unit of 15 men surrended
at Bentonville, Tn. on 4-26-1865.

1870 Census records show Levi Ranson
and his wife Nancy Ann (Henson)
living on the same road and next door
to Nancy Jane (Bagwell Clayton).

The 1880 census shows Nancy Ann
(Henson) Clayton living in
Pickens County with her children
and Levi isn't listed as living
in the household. Nancy is
listed as widowed.

Something happened to Levi Ranson
in the time period within that
10 year time frame, but what?

And then both Levi and Nancy
seem to drop off the face of
the earth? I can't find anything
else on them at all after 1880?
No death or burial records for either?
I don't know what happened to the 600 Acres
his father left him in his will?

This is very, very strange
and sure has me puzzled!
If anyone that reads this,
has any information on Levi Ranson
and/or Nancy Ann (Henson) Clayton.
Would you please contact me.
I would certainly appreciate
any and all information! Thank you!
