Clinton, Catherine, Tara Revisited, Women, War, & the Plantation Legend, Abbeville Press, New York,  1995.  ISBN: 1-55859-491-4.  While the book contains many fascinating details, it is seriously marred because the author has a bias against slave owners.  At every opportunity she dismisses the possibility that a happy relationship between master and slave could ever exist.  Discussions of relationships between white employers and black employees also fell victim to this concept.

Clopton, Ann Gunn & Jack Barnett Wiley, Sr., M.D. Collection, Clopton Family Archives.  This collection contains Bible records and photographs of Mr. And Mrs. Wiley and some of their descendants.  The three pages of Bible records contain some of the most elaborate and beautiful engravings in the Clopton Family Archives.  Collection courtesy of Lee Graham, Jr., M.Div.

Clopton, Anthony & Margaret Sophronia Mayes Kegins Collection, Clopton Family Archives.  Family Bible.

Clopton, Benjamin Michaux and Adosha Glover Collection, Clopton Family Archives.  Contains the Family Bible registry consisting of four pages.  An unidentified individual wrote on a transcript of the entries as “Bible purchased by Benjamin M. Clopton in 1804.  Price $10.00.”  It was copied in 1933.  The information appears to have been added through the years by many hands.  It is not clear if all four pages came from the same Bible.  There is no cover sheet.  The earliest records date from 1759, the latest, 1846.  It is not known who has possession of the original Bible.

Clopton, Cordelia Belle, Collection, Clopton Family Archives.  Contains a twenty page, typed transcript of The Clopton Family, originally handwritten by Miss Clopton, probably in the early 1900’s.  A cover letter dated March 19, 1952, by “Peggy,” on Builders’ Exchange of Richmond, Virginia, explains that “Peggy” made the transcript from Miss Clopton’s original papers.  There is a J. K. Perrin identified on the letterhead as a Vice President, so possibly “Peggy” is a Clopton descendant through the Perrins.  She notes that an “Aunt Mary” worked with “Cousin Belle” on the project.  There are some mistakes, and the work, like any secondary source, requires further evidence.  Also in the collection are several letters she wrote.  Compiled from collections located at the Virginia Historical Society at Richmond, the John D. Rockefeller Library at Colonial Williamsburg, Duke University, Georgia State Archives, Museum of the Confederacy, and Clopton Family descendants.

Clopton, David, Sr. and Mary Ann Vanderwall Collection, Clopton Family Archives.  Includes his Revolutionary War military records and several legal documents.

Garrett of Atlanta, in 1963.  Courtesy of Suellen (Clopton) DeLoach Blanton.

Clopton Family Newsletter Privately Printed by the Clopton Family Association.  The issues are very interesting and enjoyable when relating to matters of immediate family concerns and activities.  However, the newsletters have little to offer genealogists and historians.  Full identification is often lacking when births, marriages and deaths are noted, making it impossible to connect the individuals within the family tree.  Seldom are sources cited in the educational articles, and even then, the references are very vague.  Copies located Clopton Family Archives, courtesy of Suellen (Clopton) DeLoach Blanton.

Clopton, Gene Carlton, The Ancestors and Descendants of William Clopton of York County, Virginia.  Privately Printed - Limited Edition, Phoenix Printing, Inc., Atlanta, Georgia, 1984.  The author received permission to reprint the Clopton genealogy by Lucy Lane Erwin (see below), changing only the format, and making no corrections to her work.  However, Mr. Clopton’s book features many additional names to the later, American lines, although entries were frequently accepted with no supporting evidence cited in the book.  Copy located Clopton Family Archives, courtesy of Suellen (Clopton) DeLoach Blanton.

Clopton, James Alexander Clopton, Genealogy of The Clopton Family, 1086-1934, Privately Published, typed manuscript. Honea, Texas, 1922.

Clopton, James Guy and Melissa Tennessee Neil Collection, Clopton Family Archives.  Consists of a tinted photograph taken on their wedding day and three pages from the Family Bible.  There is no cover sheet.  Much of the information appears to have been entered by one hand using the same pen.  The date and place of death of Guy and Melissa was made in a different hand, therefore we may assume the Bible belonged to this couple.  The place of birth of all the children, except Cecil, was given as “Mourissi.”  Later someone attempted to correct the spelling by overwriting and came up with several more creative ways to spell Missouri.  The only recorded death was that of Elves Clopton.

Clopton, James Waldegrave and Frances D. Lamar Collection, Clopton Family Archives. Contains the Holy Bible containing the Old and New Testaments together with The Apocrypha, H. & E. Phinney’s Stereotype Edition, Published and Sold by H. E. Phillney, Cooperstown, N.Y., Sold Also by I. Tiffany, Utica,  Original Bible donated to Auburn University by Lois Eulalia (Armstrong) Goocher.  Copy of the original pages consists of four pages with many entries by different hands.  The earliest entry is dated 1839, the latest, 1898.  Some sections were cut out of the original Bible by a descendant.  A copy of the Bible was donated by Mrs. Goocher to the Clopton Family Archives.  The collection also contains a color photograph of a letter donated by Mrs. Goocher written by James Waldegrave Clopton to his uncle, Dr. Thomas B. Clopton.

Reid and their mother was Andrew Reids first wife Mariah who died shortly after the birth of the twins."  There are four pages of records.  The entries were made over time by several hands.  The earliest date is 1787, the latest, 1917.  James Penick Marshall, Jr., President, Eatonton-Putnam County Historical Society contributed a copy of this Bible to the Clopton Family Archives.

Vicary Gibbs, Geoffrey H. White, and R. S.

Clopton, and Thomas S. Clopton, Jr.”  The Archives also contains the complete transcript of 68 pages, which states the work is “Dedicated to Cornelia Clopton Matthews and James Alexander Clopton, Sr.”   The compiler’s note, dated January 1, 1934, states, in part, “This genealogy does not aim to be complete.  It is limited to that Branch of the family which emigrated to Virginia in the seventeenth century and later, Alabama, Mississippi, and Texas.”  Dr. Motisher, living at Albany, New York at the time of publication, notes she consulted records found in the New York State Library at Albany.  The text contains no footnotes.  This work predates Lucy Lane Erwin’s, The Ancestry of William Clopton of York County, Virginia (see above), and, although not cited, appears to have been a source for Mrs. Erwin.

Oliver, Stefan, An Introduction to Heraldry, A Quantum Book, Chartwell Books, Edison, New Jersey, 2000.  ISBN:  0-7858-1248-2.  An excellent book filled with many colorful and lavish illustrations.  Dismayed by the laborious and often obscure language found in the vast majority of books on the subject (almost calculated to drown any interest the novice may have) the author set out to write a book that would stimulate interest in Heraldry and not frighten off the beginner.  He succeeded and produced a book that is refreshingly easy for the tyro to understand and the scholar to appreciate.  Several photographs of Clopton arms are included as well as those of many allied families of the Cloptons.  Copy located Clopton Family Archives, courtesy of Suellen (Clopton) DeLoach Blanton.

Suffolk Manorial Families, Being the County Visitations and other Pedigrees, Edited with Extensive Additions by Joseph James Muskett, Corresponding Member of the Historic Genealogical Society of New England, Privately Printed, William Pollard & Co., Inc., Exeter, 1900.  By the early 16th century, complaints begin to surface of some families displaying arms to which they were not entitled.  Heralds from the College of Arms were sent out to record genuine arms and to suppress those which could not be satisfactorily proved.  These were known as “Visitations,” and County Suffolk received visitations in 1561, 1577, 1612, and 1664/8.  The College of Arms is in possession of the original reports which have been corrected from time to time.  They are no longer available to the general public.  However, several excellent transcriptions have been published. The Heralds were permitted to retain copies of their original working notes, and some of these transcriptions were made directly from these sources.  Although the copies in possession of the College of Arms are considered the more reliable, the transcriptions contained in this work are considered acceptable sources by genealogical societies.  Copies located Suffolk Record Office, Bury St. Edmunds Branch, England, and the New England Historic Genealogical Society, 101 Newbury Street, Boston, Massachusetts,  02116-3077.  Copies of any of the Visitations are very difficult to fine in the United States.  Most public library systems do not have them, and a surprising number of college and university libraries do not have them either.  Small private libraries associated with state genealogical and historical societies as well as universities with a strong European History department.  If you plan to do extensive studies of pedigrees of families associated with a particular county in England, you may find it worth your time and money to purchase a copy from a rare book dealer.  Waterstone Books has a web site or may be contacted at Waterstone’s Booksearch, Hawarden Terrace, Larkhall, Bath BA1 6RE, United Kingdom.
