My great-grandparents met and married in Clayton County in 1865, raised seven
children there and died after 1920.
Their names were Vallonia RENSHAW and John EVERALL. The 1880+ and 1916
Histories of Clayton County have quite a bit about them, and their son and
nephew BB EVERALL and LL RENSHAW are mentioned several times in the recently
published book about Monona.
I am looking for more information about their families, and I would like to
contact any relatives who are still living in Clayton County.
