I am posting this to the list Ben Clifton wrote me and I cannot get back with
him his mail is not going through & I know he is on the list. Also at the
bottom is an out line of Robert Clifton DE that Ted Clifton thinks he belongs
to so this may help others on the list Barbara "Clifton" Guinn

Original message:
What a nice surprise I was just thinking about you the other day. I was
going through some old papers and found all the material you sent me a few
years back, several things from Ruth Clifton, can't tell you how much it has
helped at different times. I always keep an eye out for your Bozeman.

One thing Ted did tell me he believes he is out of Benjamin (moved to Ohio by
1800) and thinks this may be his Noah's father (no proof) also this Benjamin
is out of Thomas that married Sara Avery (widow of the pirate) I have listed
below what little I know of this family, hope it helps. Ted is still working
on trying to get this connection so if he finds anything I will let you know
and he did tell me his daughter will be caring on his work when he can no
longer do it, hope that will not be for a very long time. Barbara
