John Murphy Thank you Kim for this photo. I have been working on my wife's grandmother side of the family (Clifton and Branson) and I am so happy to have some aunts and uncle of hers.

Kim Howard There is a "typo" in the picture description.
John Clifton b.c1735 m. Nancy who MAY have been a Jones. It is only conjecture at this point that Jones was indeed her maiden name.
