We are believed to be decendants of Col. William Clift born December 5, 1795 in Greene County territory of the United States.
He moved to Hamilton County in 1824 and became the largest land owner in Hamilton County, and the first Millionaire in Hamilton County along with his brother-n-law Major Robert McRee.

Col. Clift married Nancy Arwin Brooks on April 15, 1823. Nancy was born Feburary 22, 1795 in Knox County Tennessee. They had seven children: America Washington Clift, Elizabeth Agnes Clift, James Warren Clift, Mary Ann Clift, Robert Brooks Clift, Moses Haney Clift, and Joseph John Clift.

I have found out that Col.William Clift's son, Joseph Clift is the son we are decendants of. His son, Mode M. Clift born in 1877 and Mode's son Fred Clift born September 16, 1897 and Fred's son, Norris Eugene Clift born on June 8, 1918 in Soddy Daisy, Tennessee. Col. William Clift is burried at the Soddy Presbeterian Cemetary in Soddy Daisy, TN. along with his decendants Joseph Clift and Mode Clift.

I am interested in any other information on the family and children of Col. William Clift. I would love to receive any email from anyone who has information, or is a distant relative.

I would like to thank those of you who contacted me and gave me some information, you have helped me get closer to completing my family tree and that means so much to me.
