A Note from the new Clay County Coordinator
As of April 28, 2007, Everette Carr became the new host for Clay County, MSGenWeb. The Clay County site has been maintained in excellent condition, but your new County Coordinator is going to attempt to make it even better. But I will need your help and assistance because I do not reside in Mississippi. However, with the help of Clay County researchers, that should not be a problem. If you have any suggestions for this site, please do not hesitate to contact me. Have something that would enhance the site, please send it to me.

Photo of Clay County Courthouse is needed for the new Courthouse photo project.
