Clayton in Rabun County vs. Clayton County, GA

Beware of potential confusion between Clayton County, and the town of Clayton in Rabun county, approximately 100 miles to the Northeast. I have relatives in both locations and thus became sensitive to this issue. When you add a census record to your tree from Clayton County, the location will be added as "Clayton, Georgia, United States". If you then click on that place name in your person's overview, Ancestry will erroneously show you a map of Clayton over in Rabun County. I see massive confusion in people's trees about this. I see records and people that I know belong in Clayton County attributed to Rabun County and vice versa.
