www.sec.state.la.us/23.htm


From John Graves, jjgraves1948@myfamily.com "Recent investigation indicates that Senator Claiborne was first married to Elizabeth Wilson Lewis of Nashville. Following her death, he married Clarisse Durald of New Orleans. They had two children: Cornelia Tennessee Claiborne who died in infancy and a son, William Charles Cole Claiborne Jr. Following Clarisse's death in a yellow fever epidemic, Senator Claiborne married Suzette Bosque of New Orleans. They had a son Charles who died unmarried and daughter Sophronia Claiborne. Some information on the Senator's namesake follows:
William Charles Cole Claiborne Jr. married Louise de Balathier who was born in Paris, France. The names of some of their offspring are listed below:
Clarisse Claiborne - born 1835; died 1901.
William Charles Cole Claiborne III - born 1837; died 1925 - he married Jeanne Robelot, born 1853 in France and died 1932.
Henry de Balathier Claiborne - born 1838; died 1872.
George Washington Claiborne - born 1840; died 1864.
Arthur Claiborne - born 1841; died 1888.
Senator Claiborne, born in 1775, was one of several children born to William and Mary Leigh Claiborne. Senator Claiborne's siblings include General Fedinand Leigh Claiborne, Thomas Augustine Claiborne, Nathaniel Herbert Claiborne, and Mary Leigh Claiborne.


Senator Claiborne's relationship to Colonel William Claiborne, the emigrant and my great
[times 8] grandfather may be traced as follows:
Col. William Claiborne, the emigrant [b. 1600; d. 1776] married Elizabeth Butler
their son, Lt. Col. Thomas Claiborne [b. 17 Aug 1647; d. 7 Oct 1683] married Sarah Fenn [b. 22 Mar 1659/60; d. 18 Oct 1716].
their son, Capt. Thomas Claiborne [b. 1 Jan 1680/81; d. 1 Aug 1732]married Anne Fox [b. 20 May 1684; d. 4 May 1733].
their son, Col. Nathaniel Claiborne [b. abt. 1716; d. 1 Sep 1756] married Jane Cole
their son William Claiborne [b. unk.; d. 29 Sep 1809] married Mary Leigh
their son was Sen. William Charles Cole Claiborne [b. 1775; d. 23 Nov 1817]


The following biography comes from the Library of Congress:
CLAIBORNE, William Charles Cole, 1775-1817
Years of Service: 1817-1817 (U.S. Senator)
Party: Democrat
CLAIBORNE, William Charles Cole, (brother of Nathaniel Herbert Claiborne, nephew of Thomas Claiborne [1749-1812], uncle of John Francis Hamtramck Claiborne, and great-great-great granduncle of Corinne Claiborne Boggs), a Representative from Tennessee and a Senator from Louisiana; born in Sussex County, Va., in 1775; moved in early youth to New York City; studied law in Richmond, Va.; was admitted to the bar and commenced practice in Sullivan County, Tenn.; delegate to the State constitutional convention from Sullivan County in 1796; appointed judge of the superior court in 1796; elected as a Republican from Tennessee to the Fifth and Sixth Congresses, and served from November 23, 1797, to March 3, 1801, in spite of the fact that he was still initially under the constitutional age requirement of twenty-five years; appointed Governor of the Territory of Mississippi in 1801; appointed in October 1803 one of the commissioners to take possession of Louisiana when purchased from France and served as Governor of the Territory of Orleans 1804-1812; Governor of Louisiana 1812-1816; elected as a Democrat from Louisiana to the United States Senate and served from March 4, 1817, until his death, before the assembling of Congress, in New Orleans, La., November 23, 1817; interment in Basin St. Louis Cemetery; reinterment in Metairie Cemetery.

There are literally hundreds of letters on file and on-line at the Library of Congress
that were written between President Thomas Jefferson and William C. C. Claiborne. You may view them by going to http://www.loc.gov. Click on the "American Memory" section and conduct a search using "William C. C. Claiborne." Insofar as Claiborne's penmanship is much better than Jefferson's, you may want to read these before trying to tackle Jefferson's letters.


And this info comes from the History of Claiborne County, Tennessee:


"The act to erect a new county from portions of Hawkins and Grainger Counties in Tennessee
was passed October 29, 1801. It was named Claiborne in honor of William Charles Cole
Claiborne, one of the first judges of the superior court, and the first representative in Congress from Tennessee. Claiborne County lies in the northern portion of East Tennessee, and borders both the States of Kentucky and Virginia. The famous Cumberland Gap is situated near the middle of its northern line."


Claiborne County, Mississippi, also named for William C. C. Claiborne, is located along the Mississippi River, south of the Big Black River, in the southwestern section of Mississippi.


The following comes from the History of Claiborne County in Mississippi: "In the early history, the Mississippi River, the Big Black (or Chittaloosa as the Indians called it), as well as Bayou Pierre were all navigable. Many lakes, natural springs, bayous, creeks, and small branches abounded in the area.


The first white setlement in the area was established in 1729 as a hunting village near Petit Gulf, just north of Rodney. The first permament settlement was established in 1775 and by 1795, settlers were beginning to come in large numbers.


The earliest settlers obtained land grants from the government which claimed the lands at the time of settlement. The French claimed this area from the time of La Salle's exploration of the Mississippi River until 1763. Then the English claimed it by the Seven Years War Treaty from 1763 until 1781.


During the English rule, the area was called East and West Florida with Pensacola as the
Capitol. However, Spain also claimed parts of this area as Natchez had surrendered to Spain
in 1779, and from 1781 until 1798, she claimed all of what is now Claiborne County as her own and gave many land grants.


The state of Georgia also claimed it as her "western lands" in 1785. The government in
Georgia organized the county of Bourbon and began selling land to anxious settlers and it was during this time that Nicholas Long, Thomas Cumming, A. Gordon, Thomas GLASSCOCK"
[another notable cousin!], "and others, bought all the territory which is now Claiborne County (and other counties) for $155,000.00.


Claiborne County was formed from the northern section of Jefferson County, Mississippi
Territory and old Natchez District on 27 Jan 1802. It was named for the first Republican
governor, William C. C. Claiborne, and was the state's third county."


Today, a major street in New Orleans is named for William Claiborne as is a Parish along the western portion of Louisiana's northern border with Arkansas. His New Orleans residence has been restored and today this historic structure serves the nostalgic traveler as a scenic hotel/bed and breakfast. It is located a few blocks from the French Quarter in the Lower Garden District. When one considers all William Claiborne accomplished and that he died at age 42, it makes one's own life pale by comparison.
My daughter will be enrolling at Tulane next month and I will, therefore, be frequenting New Orleans. I hope to stay at the Claiborne Mansion in the near future.
