There is a beautiful old house in Yanceyville, N.C., named Clarendon Hall. It was built by Thomas Donoho Johnston (President of the Bank of Yanceyville) in 1842. See the accompanying photograph that I took September 2005.

I am looking for all the subsequent owners of this property, and especially whether it was once owned by William B. (Billy Hickory) Graves (who married Mary Elizabeth Shuford). Their son was Barzillai Shuford Graves.

At one time the Jones family owned the property, and it now is owned by the Williams family.
