The information contained in the following genealogy must be judged on the evidence submitted supporting each claim.  Any additional information which will add to our knowledge of this family will be gratefully accepted

 

 

Generation No. 1

 

        1.  Walter17 Clopton, The Elder, of "Callowell"  (William16, William15, Walter14, William13, Richard12, William11, John10, William9, Thomas8, Walter7, William6, Walter5, William4, Walter3, William2, Guillaume1 Peche, Lord Of Cloptunna and Dalham)1 was born Abt. 1687 in New Kent County, Virginia, and died Aft. June 26, 1758 in New Kent County, Virginia2.  He married Mary Jarratt September 4, 1711 in St. Peter's Parish Church, New Kent County, Virginia3, daughter of Robert Jarratt and Mary. 

        There are many troubling elements regarding the listing of the children currently found in both the Lucy Erwin and Gene Clopton, Clopton genealogies.  The Erwin book did not list Elizabeth or Richard. Gene Clopton notes the Parish Registry is mutilated, and Richard is listed as Richard son of Walter and Mary------, and concludes Richard "must be "Clopton" as no other Walter and Mary is known in St. Peter's Parish at the time."  The registry notes the birth or baptism of Anne, a son, Mary, Walter, and Rob(ert).   No proof has been offered that Walter (born 1720, died in infancy).  Cordelia Belle Clopton, lists the children as Walter, Mary, Robert, Deve(reaux), Naomi, Margaret, and Anne.  There is a strong belief that at least some of the children may belong to another Clopton male.  There are a number of Clopton adults of this period who have not yet been connected with a family.

       

Children of Walter Clopton and Mary Jarratt are:

+      2                 i.    Ann18 Clopton, of New Kent, born July 3, 1712 in New Kent County, Virginia.

+      3                ii.    William Clopton, Am. Rev., of New Kent, born November 19, 1714 in New Kent County, Virginia; died 1785.

+      4               iii.    Elizabeth Clopton, of New Kent, born 1715 in New Kent County, Virginia; died in probably North Carolina.

        5               iv.    Mary Clopton, of New Kent, born August 29, 17164.

        6                v.    Walter Clopton, I, of Virginia, born March 24, 1719/205; died Abt. 1721.

        7               vi.    Robert Clopton, of Virginia, born June 4, 17256.

        8              vii.    Devereaux Clopton, of New Kent, born August 30, 17277.

+      9             viii.    Margaret Clopton, of New Kent, born September 9, 1728 in New Kent, Virginia; died 1824 in Buckingham County, Virginia.

        13             xii.    Walter Clopton, The Younger, of New Kent, born February 18, 1739/409.

 

 

Generation No. 2

 

        2.  Ann18 Clopton, of New Kent (Walter17, William16, William15, Walter14, William13, Richard12, William11, John10, William9, Thomas8, Walter7, William6, Walter5, William4, Walter3, William2, Guillaume1 Peche, Lord Of Cloptunna and Dalham) was born July 3, 1712 in New Kent County, Virginia10.  She married Benjamin Bradley, of Charles City, son of Joseph Bradley, of Charles City County, Virginia.  He was born 1708 in Charles City County, Virginia, and died 1768.

        No proof has been found that Ann Clopton married anyone or had any children.  The theory of a possible Bradley-Clopton connection has been carefully researched by Frank Bradley, the former Genealogical Specialist, New York Public Library.  After extensive research on the Bradley Family, it is his opinion that a very strong case can be made supporting this marriage based on several points:

        1. Walter Clopton (her father) was named guardian of Jesse, Susannah & Elizabeth Bradley; 2. Saint Peter's Parish Registry lists the children of Benjamin and Ann Bradley; 3. the similarity of given names of the children of Walter Clopton & Benjamin Bradley; 4.  Bradleys married into the Clopton and Jarratt families; and, 5. The Rev. Devereux Jarratt (1733-1801) wrote "my uncle was the first who had that name (Devereux) in Virginia."  The Rev. Devereux may have been named after Devereux Clopton, his "Clopton" Uncle, or he may have been speaking of Devereux Jarratt, his "Jarratt" uncle.  See "Walking the Primrose Path," Volume I, for more on the Devereux family.

               

Children of Ann Clopton and Benjamin Bradley are:

        14               i.    James19 Bradley, of Possom Run.

+      15              ii.    Walter Bradley, of Long Bridge.

        16             iii.    Elizabeth Bradley.

        17             iv.    Rachel Bradley, born May 20, 173611.

        18              v.    Ann Bradley, born August 8, 173712.

        19             vi.    Joice Bradley.

        20            vii.    Jesse Bradley.

        21           viii.    Benjamin Bradley, Jr..

        22              ix.    Mary Bradley.

        23               x.    William Bradley.

        24              xi.    Devereux Bradley.

 

        3.  William18 Clopton, Am. Rev., of New Kent (Walter17, William16, William15, Walter14, William13, Richard12, William11, John10, William9, Thomas8, Walter7, William6, Walter5, William4, Walter3, William2, Guillaume1 Peche, Lord Of Cloptunna and Dalham) was born November 19, 1714 in New Kent County, Virginia13, and died 178514.  He married Cassandra Crump, daughter of Richard Crump.  She was born Abt. April 29, 172015.

        There is no proof that Cassandra's last name is "Crump."  There were many members of the Crump family attending St. Peter's Parish Church.  However, no evidence has been submitted to date to further strengthen this Crump connection, although some descendants believe she was a member of the Crump family.

       

Children of William Clopton and Cassandra Crump are:

+      25               i.    Walter19 Clopton, of New Kent, born April 29, 1739 in New Kent County, Virginia.

+      26              ii.    Cassandra Clopton, born Abt. 1741 in New Kent County, Virginia; died 1822.

+      28             iv.    Mary Elizabeth Clopton, born November 13, 1737 in New Kent County, Virginia; died Bef. 1787 in Hard Labor Creek,South Carolina.

 

        4.  Elizabeth18 Clopton, of New Kent (Walter17, William16, William15, Walter14, William13, Richard12, William11, John10, William9, Thomas8, Walter7, William6, Walter5, William4, Walter3, William2, Guillaume1 Peche, Lord Of Cloptunna and Dalham) was born 1715 in New Kent County, Virginia16, and died in probably North Carolina.  She married William Ballard Aft. September 10, 1774.  He was born in Lunenburg County, Virginia, and died in Halifax County, North Carolina.

        The information regarding Elizabeth Clopton & William Ballard was contained in a letter from Clifton F. Davis, Esq., Shreveport, Louisiana, dated August 11, 1938 and was sent to Lucy Lane Erwin.  But to date, there is no proof that Elizabeth Clopton married William Ballard nor that an Elizabeth Clopton was the daughter of Walter Clopton and Mary Jarrett. 

        William and Elizabeth lived in Lunenburg County, Virginia.  There is a deed to him dated December 3, 1735.  About 1760 they migrated to the Scotland Neck Vicinity, Halifax County, North Carolina.  His will, dated September 10, 1774,  names his wife and nine children.

       

Children of Elizabeth Clopton and William Ballard are:

+      30              ii.    Joyce Ballard, born Abt. 1740 in probably Lunenburg County, Virginia.

        31             iii.    Elizabeth Ballard17, born Abt. 1743 in probably Lunenburg County, Virginia.  She married George Freeman.

+      32             iv.    Martha Ballard, born November 2, 1749 in probably Lunenburg County, Virginia; died November 5, 1827 in Newberry County, Sourth Carolina.

        33              v.    Nancy Ann Ballard17, born 1751 in probably Lunenburg County, Virginia.  She married William Lenoir.

        34             vi.    Walter Clopton Ballard17, born Abt. 1753 in probably Lunenburg County, Virginia; died 1801 in Halifax County, North Carolina.  He married Rebecca Taylor May 23, 1786.

        35            vii.    Devereux Ballard, born 1756 in probably Lunenburg County, Virginia.

        36           viii.    Salumith Ballard, born in Lunenburg County, Virginia, probably; died Abt. 1841 in Warren County, North Carolina, probably18.  She married William Burt19; died Abt. 1823 in Warren County, North Carolina, probably20.

        37              ix.    William Sorrell Ballard, born in probably Lunenburg County, Virginia.

 

        9.  Margaret18 Clopton, of New Kent (Walter17, William16, William15, Walter14, William13, Richard12, William11, John10, William9, Thomas8, Walter7, William6, Walter5, William4, Walter3, William2, Guillaume1 Peche, Lord Of Cloptunna and Dalham)21 was born September 9, 1728 in New Kent, Virginia21, and died 1824 in Buckingham County, Virginia21.  She married (1) Thomas Pasley.  He was born July 7, 1724 in New Kent County, Virginia22, and died Bet. 1762 and 1766 in Buckingham County, Virginia.  She married (2) James Bristow, Jr.23 176623.  He was born September 28, 1751 in Dinwiddie County, Virginia23, and died April 12, 1804 in Virginia23.

        Why would Margaret marry a fifteen year old boy when she was 38?  This type of arrangement did happen from time to time, even in those days, but could it be that Margaret is actually a daughter of one of the males listed as her brother?

        38               i.    Frances19 Pasley, born January 16, 1753 in New Kent Co. Va.24.

William Douglas at St. James Northam Parish Church94, and died July 17, 1848 in Desoto County, Mississippi and buried Desoto County95.  He married Rhoda "Rhody" Hoggatt, of "Clover Bottom Farm"96 May 24, 1804 in "Clover Bottoms Farm,"  Nashville, Tennessee97, daughter of John Hoggatt and Agnes Watkins.  She was born December 23, 1785 in Buckingham County, Virginia, and died November 23, 1831 in Covington, Tipton County, Tennessee, and buried at the Clopton Cemetery at Tipton98.

The United States of America was a fine place to be in the early 1800’s.  The young country promised its citizens the right to free speech, to worship as they wished, and to pursue happiness.   And it was the pursuit of happiness which much occupied the minds of the young men and women of the Clover Bottom Community of Donelson, Davidson County, Tennessee.  In 1804, thirty seven year old Anthony Clopton, left the ranks of bachelorhood behind and married into one of the wealthiest families in the area, the Hoggatts of “Clover Bottom” Farm.  Rhoda “Rhody” Hoggatt moved with ease through the glittering world of antebellum Nashville and brought to the marriage a level of sophistication not always in evidence in what was still a rough and tumble frontier.  Anthony and Rhody Clopton would live to see their neighbor and friend, Andrew Jackson, become the seventh President of the United States in 1829; Jackson’s beloved wife, Rachel, would not.  Rhody’s death would spare her the knowledge of the gruesome events waiting in store for one of her sons.  In March 1843, 176 members of an unauthorized army of Texans were captured in Mexico.  Mexican President Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna refused to consider the Texans as prisoners of war, treating them instead as criminals.  Angered by an escape attempt, he first ordered the execution of all the men, but he later relented, dictating instead that only one in ten should be shot.  The men were to draw beans from a jar to determine which 17 among them would die for their alleged crimes.  William Anthony Clopton would live, but his harrowing ordeal was not to end for another year.  The horrific saga of the Mier Expedition is one of the most macabre stories in the annals of American history.  See Sewing Bees and Duels at Dawn

About 1843, Jonathon and America moved to Platte County,Missouri where they had a large and splendid farm and brought up their family of ten children. In 1864, they joined an Ox team, covered wagon outfit and headed for Montana, then a territory. America rode in a chair and informed folks she was to be addressed as "Madame". The 1870 census finds the Forbis family in Helena,where Jonathon died seven years later. It was said that America kept young by keeping young folks around her. The 1880 census shows her as head of a household which included not only three sons and a daughter (all in their 2o's) but an adopted Indian girl of 9 named Propen Navarro. Unfortunately, we have no further knowledge of this child. America appears in the 1893 Butte City Directory - her three sons all nearby. William, the oldest son, in mining and John F. and James W., lawyers. "Forbis and Forbis" situated in the Forbis Block at 47 E. Broadway. By the 1900 census, America is living with her son John F. and his family. According to an obituary, America had spent the winter of 1902 with her daughter, Mrs. Steele, at Helena. She went on to Spokane to visit her daughter Mrs. Brownlee and the two intended to spend the summer on the coast when she was taken ill. She was removed to Green River, Oregon and, later to Portland, where she died on July 12, 1903 at the age of 86. The eight old-timers who acted as pall bearers included a Governor and ex-Governor.

        72.  Lydia20 Perrin (Cassandra19 Clopton, William18, Walter17, William16, William15, Walter14, William13, Richard12, William11, John10, William9, Thomas8, Walter7, William6, Walter5, William4, Walter3, William2, Guillaume1 Peche, Lord Of Cloptunna and Dalham) was born February 12, 1764 in Charlotte County, Virginia., and died April 3, 1840 in St. Francis County, Missouri.  She married (1) Shadrack Blanks October 1, 1781 in Charlotte County, Virginia.  He was born Abt. 1760 in Charlotte County, Virginia., and died Abt. 1809 in Madison County, Kentucky.  She married (2) John Wilkerson July 5, 1812 in Lincoln County, Kentucky. 

        W.P. Blanks was born in what is known as the Cook Settlement, Libert Township, St. Francois County, Missouri November 29, 1838 and is the son of Zeno T. and Maria (Withers) Blanks and grandson of Shadrack and Lydia (Perrin) Blanks. The Grandparents were born, reared, and married in Louisa County, Virginia Shadrack Blanks was a farmer  by occupation. He moved from his native county after marriage and settled in Lincoln County, Kentucky where he died. His widow came to Missouri with Zeno Blanks and settled in Liberty Township. Zeno was born in Lincoln County, Kentucky near what was known as Crab Orchard. He came to Missouri with his mother, located in Liberty Township on what is known as the Crow Farm and built the present brick house that stands there, though the present owners have made an addition to it. Here the mother died, and here Mr. Zeno Blanks also passed his last days. He died in 1844. His widow survived him about 6 years. Both were members of the Christian Church.

Mr. Blanks was an old line Whig in his political preferences and had held the office of Justice of the Peace for some time. W.P. Blanks, the subject of this sketch, was reared in Liberty Township, St. Francois Co. and secured a fair education in the schools of that county. He was reared to farm life and about 1861 he engaged in mercantile pursuits at Libertyville where he continued until the fall of 1884 and then sold out. Just before the completion of the Iron Mountain Branch Road through Knob Lick he, in connection with John E. Clardy, erected a building in the last named place, and engaged in merchandising there. They afterward dissolved the partnership and Mr. Blanks was not connected with business in Knob Lick. In the fall of 1884 he removed his family to Know Lick and has ever since resided there.

He was married in DeSoto, Mo. Aug. 16, 1869 to Miss Minerva Bainbridge a native of Jonesboro,Ill., and daughter of Col. Allen and Nancy (Spiller) Bainbridge. Both parents were natives of Tenn., but later removed to DeSoto,Mo. Col. Bainbridge was engaged in milling and merchandising while in Jonesboro,Ill. He also represented his county two terms in the Legislature. After removing to DeSoto,Mo. he engaged in fruit growing and died Oct.28,1873. His wife is still living and is now residing in St. Louis.

To Mr. & Mrs Blanks were born these children: Florence E., Maria B., Arthur Withers, Mary Alice, and Anna Grace. Mr. Blanks is a member of Knob Lick Lodge No.337 AOUW and is treasurer of the same. He represented the lodge in the general convention at St. Louis in Feb.1888. He is a Democrat in his political views, and with his wife and two daughters is a member of the Christian Church, of which he is an elder.

Shadrack Blanks is appointed surveyor of the road from the Hickman road near Valentine Hermans towards the courthouse to intersect the Paint Lick road in the room of Josephus Perrin. It is ordered that he with the tithes allotted for the purpose do clear and keep the same in repair according to law.

Bradford) which stood on the spot where the Herring Filling Station now stands (1940).  After beating Mr. Herring into an unconscious condition, these desperadoes took his boots and ring and left him, so they believed dead.  In a few days, however, Mr. Herring recovered.  The next home attacked was that of James Forman, just across the branch in Springville, Mr. Forman was on guard duty in Beaver Valley and so escaped any harm at the hands of the tormentors."  His sister, Amanda, wife of Lewis M. Herring, owned and operated the Herring Hotel in Springville.  Many people from Birmingham and Gadsden enjoyed driving to Herring Inn where they rocked on the wide porch or strolled to Springville Lake to feed the fish, then enjoyed a leisurely lunch.  The children liked to romp on the tailored lawn under the shade of the spreading elm trees.  The register contained the named of many statesmen, dignitaries, European travelers, and even movie stars.
