I have greatly revised and expanded the biographical sketch of Joshua Clyburn, our first known ancestor. Among other things, I have revised portions relating to his parentage and Revolutionary War experience, as well as expanded upon possible siblings.
All of the biographical information for Reuben Cicero Claybourn and Candace Frances Frost Claybourn, as well as all of the information available regarding their descendants, has been fully uploaded to the CGS website.
The biographical sketch of Judith Claybourn Howard has been added, as have images of her interment at Arlington National Cemetery.
All of the biographical information for William Pratt Claybourn and John Bethel Claybourn, as well as all of the information available regarding their descendants, has been fully uploaded to the CGS website.
Thanks to the contributions of William (“Bob”) R. Claiborne, we have significantly updated the records of William Britton Claiborne (“Britt”) and his descendants. Britt is the second child of Arthur Smith Claiborne, Sr., seventh child of John B. Claiborne.
The amount of information we have on all of the Claybourn/Claiborne family members is enormous, and I’ve only begun to put it all online. But I’ve now uploaded everything I have available for John B. Claiborne and his descendants. Further, I’ve supplied footnotes and other references throughout. William Divine and James T.’s branches still require a lot of cleaning up to do, but for I’m happy with the progress in John B.’s branch. I’d like to give a particular thanks to Nancy Claiborne, daughter of Harry Eugene Claiborne, for her enormous help in securing pictures and other stories.
This is the first test post of the Claybourn Genealogical Society Newsletter.
