My ggrandfather was Dempsey Barclift Jr. of Perquimans County NC. Ron Forehand >email@example.com
< has a web site about him, and also Paul Barclift >firstname.lastname@example.org
< has studied the Barclifts extensively.
I believe Ron's goes back farther then the 1700s.
Glad to hear from someone new.
