Clay County, tucked under the toe of Missouri in the extreme northeast corner of the state, was created 24 March 1873 and was originally named “Clayton County” after John Middleton Clayton, a U. S. Senator from Delaware and later U. S. Secretary of State under President Zachary Taylor in 1849-1850. This historical portion of this book goes from the earliest time up to the time of the original publication in the mid-1880s. The biographical sketches were submitted by the families themselves.
