    • Clements, William, Jr. (1767-1837) Wayne County, Ga.

      William Clements, ancestor of the large Clements connection of Berrien and Lanier Counties, was born in Kershaw District, S. C. in 1767, a son of William Clemons, R. S. He came to Glynn County along with his brothers Arthur and Michael. He was commissioned Captain of the militia in the 27th district of Glynn County, November 24, 1806, and served until his removal the next year to Wayne County. In Wayne, he was commissioned Justice of Peace, 334th district, July 15, 1807, serving until two years later when he resigned to become a Justice of Wayne Inferior Court to which office he had been appointed by legislative act in 1809. He served ten years on this important tribunal. Years later, after his sons had moved to Lowndes County, Mr. Clements and his wife moved there also and thereafter lived with their children until they died. He died there in March, 1837. His wife continued to live with her son-in-law, Gen. Levi J. Knight and family, and was 80 years old and blind. She died sometime in the 1850s. Mr. Clements and his wife, Elizabeth, were buried in Union Church cemetery (Lanier County, GA); graves unmarked.
