Does anyone know about William(Cary)Clary who married Annie Mae Kerr. They Had 7 kids...Roger, Hardin, Flossie, Lou, Margret, Lola Lee Roma. William was possibly William Cary and changed it to Clary. The rumor being that he killed a man over a game of poker, so he moved changed his name.
It would be very interesting to find out the truth of the it. Thanks much, KJH
There is a book; Clary Genealogy,Four Early American Lines Related Families by Ralph Shearer Rowland Star Wilson Rowland that has extensive information about the Clary lines. It was printed Nov.,1980. If anyone can locate it would be greatly appreciated.
I have the Clary book you are referring to. I purchased it for $25 from the following person:

This is great information! I had assumed that the Clary Grove Boys were sort of wild, so am surprised to see that they were church going folks. Do you think they became involved with the Primitive Baptists while in Tennessee?
