This is interesting for our family, as my children, Neale Clifton Jr. and Debra Lynn and I  are descendants of these Claibornes through Jane Claiborne.  My daughter, Debra Lynn Clifton Mintz, has five children descending from the Claibornes through the Thomas Claiborne connection with Annie Ruth Claiborne Carlisle. Debra Lynn's first husband and father of the children was Robert D. Carlisle,Jr., son of Annie Ruth Claiborne and Robert Deward Carlisle, Sr.
