The Claybourn Family Tree

The site is organized in a hierarchical structure. It begins with biographical sketches of Joshua Clyburn, the earliest known ancestor, his daughter, Sarah "Sally" Claybourn, and son Ephraim Claybourn. From there the biographies delve more deeply into Ephraim's children, including John B. Claiborne, William Divine Claybourn, James Thompson Clayborn and Luticia Achea Claiborne. Their hundreds of descendants are chronicled as well. That information can be accessed by following links within their ancestors' biographies, or using the tree outline to the right. If you do not know which of Ephraim's children you descend from, consider using the search engines below.

Most biographical pages will list children on the left, and most of the biographical pages also contain a simplified pedigree chart. Information on the Claybourn wives can be found on the pages of their husbands. This was done primarily for archival ease, and also because there is simply more historical evidence and information available about men of the family. But there remains a treasure trove of information about the Claybourn women and that is typically included on their husband's pages.
