27 Feb 97 -- Robert Harold Clayton --Robert WELLS was born March 30, 1788 in Wethersfield, CT. (>Josiah>Capt. Hezekiah>Capt. Robert). When a small boy, he moved with his family to Duanesburg, Albany Co. (Now Schenectady Co.), NY on the East Bank of Scoharie Creek. The nearest neighbor to the Josiah Wells family was Peter CLAYTON. Peter is the object of my search....>From the biographer of Robert Wells, who later married Peter's daughter Abigale, we learned most of what we know about Peter. Some of this is supported by records of the Revolutionary War.Fro military records, we know that Peter enlisted at Paxton, PA in the PA 10th regiment, and served until the first quarter of 1780. After settling in Duanesburg, NY he married Mary Lyon then, after her death, married Rachel Abby, mother of Abigale Clayton Wells. We also are fairly certain of his death date: October 11, 1838....>From the Robert Wells biography, published in 1912, we find that Peter was born in 1750 in Dublin, Ireland (ref: Pennsylvania Archives, Ser. 3, vol. 23, p 470). The biography also states that Peter had two brothers who served in the revolutionary War. One was my ancestor Jonathan, who lived in Windham County, CT, and served 165 days in the militia which defended Bennington against Burgoyne's Hessians in Aug 1777. The second, I have not identified with any certainty, although a John Clayton served in "a Pennsylvania unit" at the same time. So far, I have had no luck in locating Peter and kin in pre-war eastern PA ot NJ....For reasons not explained, the biographer offered the following conjecture(?): "He came to America as a young man and probably located in New London, Conn.".....For this reason, I would like to post this story on CT GenWeb pages. The trick is to find someone who recognizes the family name, or has information on Irish immigrations in the 1750-1775 era. Jonathan lived in Vermont as early as Feb 1767 when one brother (John in our family story, but perhaps Jonathan.) married Sarah or Susanna Watkins. This might focus the immigration window to the 1750 - 1766 range!!

97-03-06 -- Bob Clayton -- From military records, we know that Peter CLAYTON enlisted in January, 1777 at Paxton, PA in the PA 10th regiment. A family biography, published in 1912, says that Peter was born 1750 in Dublin, Ireland (ref: Pennsylvania Archives, Ser.3, vol. 23, p 470). The biography also states that Peter had two brothers who served in the revolutionary War. One lived in Windham County, VT, and served 165 days in the militia which defended Bennington. Their father may have been Alexander. The biographer offered the following conjecture: "He came to America as a young man and probably located in New London,Conn." Does anyone recognize the family name, or have information on Irish immigrations in the 1750-1770 era? Thank you,
