      The following list is taken from the Secretary of State's Papers in the North Carolina State Archives. This is a list of Burke County Land Warrants and Surveys 1778-1858. This list contains the file number of acres and location of the claim:

      "0422 Clonts, William 14 May 1824 38 1/2 (not 50) acres beginning at a post road his corner & runs S".

      -----

      Was reported in the household of his son, William, during the 1870 Caldwell County Census...DAH.

      _____

      I find it curious that there is a seven-year period between his first child, Mary, and the rest of his children. Mary may be the child of a first marriage.
