In the 1940 census, there is a Franklin Clayton, age 7 (therefore b 1933) living in Camilla, Mitchell, Georgia, son of Ben [indexed as "Bone"] Clayton, 30 (therefore born abt 1910) and Annie, 25 (therefore born abt 1915). They were all born in Georgia. Ben was a farmer. Is this the family you're seeking?

The above family (minus Franklin) is found in the 1930 census, same town (Camilla, Mitchell, Georgia):

Clayton, Benjamin, head, 21, age 20 at marriage [therefore married the year before, 1929], b Georgia, of Georgia-born parents. He was a farmer on a general farm. 

--, Anna Will. [abbreviated implying a longer middle name or this might be her maiden name], wife, 16, age 15 at marriage, self and parents born Georgia.

Enumerated immediately after there is another Clayton family-- possibly brother  of Benjamin?:

Clayton, Rufus, 37 [16 years older than Benjamin], age 20 at marriage [so not father of Benjamin unless Benjamin was born before Rufus married], b Georgia of Georgia-born parents; farmer on general farm

-, C.G. [or J?], wife, 32, age 16 at marriage, b Georgia of Georgia-born parents

With them are several children age 3-9.
