  • Name: Henry Clay MASSEY
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: DEC 1843 in Talladega Co. AL
  • Note:
    This is the Henry Clay Massey, born Dec 1843 in AL, who married Elizabeth Wilkins Petty.
    His parents were David Lee Massey b 1816-1818, SC and
    Elizabeth Jane Runyan b abt 1824 AL
    WFT listing says her parents were Isaac Runyan and Mary Lowrey. I have not worked on the Runyans at all. Double check all information, please. Family members gave information to my cousin because of the confusion over Henry C. (Clay) Massey and my family's Henry G. Massey.

    In Boothe's Registry of LA confederate soldiers:
    Massey, H.C. Pvt Co.E, 5th LA calvary...Residence at enlistment was Jackson Parish, LA

    1840 a David Massey b 1813-1823 in Talladega Co, AL
    1843 Henry Clay born Talladega Co, AL see pension application.
    1853 Henry Clay moved to LA.......cannot find family in 1850 census.
    1860 Henry C. is in household of David Massey, Jackson Parish, LA
    1862 Henry enlisted in Co E, 5th LA calvary Harrison's Brigade, said residence was Jackson Parish, LA
    1870 D. Massey is in Jackson Parish, with single son, H.C. age 26
    1880 H.C. Massey is still in Jackson Parish, b AL-----SC-AL
    wife E. W. children A.J., Dora B., James B.
    1898 Henry Clay filed his pension application for CSA service.....5 years in AR after the CW, 45 years in LA, 10 children
    This is a separate family and Henry Clay Massey is not Henry G. Massey the son of Joseph & Catherine (Ray) Massey. I have been in touch with descendants, and they agree that Henry Clay was the son of David Massey.
