COMMENTS:

1. Mrs. Bernice Upshaw Stevenson gave the information that Henry Clay Upshaw had a son and a daughter; he had a grandson who lived in Griffin, Spalding Co, GA.

2. He is supposed to be buried at Midway Methodist Church, Griffin, Spalding Co, GA. (Source: Mrs. Sophie W. Upshaw, "Capt. William Upshaw, Gent. Planter of Virginia and Allied Families", Baltimore, 1975, page 55). (No Upshaw references in "Cemeteries of Spalding County, Georgia", Griffin Historical and Preservation Society, 1986; no Church cemeteries in this book). Fred Eakin reports no Upshaw markers at Midway Methodist Church; he also searched Griffin newspapers for 8-14 Sep 1924 and found no obituary for him; the obituary may mention his burial place. His death certificate names place of burial as "Midway Cemetery", althought no marker has been located.
Mrs. Alberta (Pritchett) Jones, eldest daughter of Daniel & Lucy Beatrice (Upshaw) Pritchett, has stated in 1997 that they are buried in unmarked graves "behind the Church" at Midway Methodist.

3. The Henry Clay Upshaw family moved from Walton Co. to Griffin, Spalding Co, 10 Jun 1900.

4. Marriage date and location unknown; marriage not found in Walton Co., Spalding Co., Newton Co., or Rockdale Co. marriage records.

5. As of Jan 1998, a picture of Henry Clay Upshaw was supposed to be in possession of granddaughter, Alberta Jones, 1437 Wesley Drive, Griffin, GA 30324 (770)227-2554. (this per Fred Eakin).
