Dr. Charles Clay, son of Capt John Thomas Clay and Ann (possibly the son of Elizabeth, 2nd wife of John Clay, and not Ann)  born abt 1638 at Charles City, Virginia Colony, married Hannah Wilson abt 1667 at Henrico, Co., Virginia Colony and died abt May/June, 1686 at Henrico, Co., Virginia Colony  Charles married HANNAH WILSON 1667 in Henrico County, Virginia, daughter of JOHN WILSON, SR ,she was born 1642 in Henrico County, Virginia, and died 1706 in Henrico County, Virginia. 
Note: Dr Clay's Find A Grave Memorial  gives his birth date as 1638 while another source states that Dr Clay gave a deposition dated 2 September, 1682, Henrico Co., Va., and in sworn testimony he stated that he was "about 37 years old". That would make his year of birth about 1645.  Based on other evidence the 1638 date of birth appears to be most accurate.
In 1657 Charles apprenticed himself to Stephen Tickner, "Chyrugion," of Surry County, who was to "Employ him about the way of Chyrurgery or Phissake, for & during the terms of Seven yeares…"

It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share DNA with Charles:
Ok, I screwed up. I messed up the links within the profile. :/ Been a while since I did any html. Afraid to try and fix as I cannot ascertain exactly where the links are. (I did not remove the link location, just the way to make it so you can get there) Such as the jessecorn.html, I did not change that, but do not know where it is as that is all there is on the link. I PROMISE I didn't mess that part up. :( Send me nasty notes, I deserve them. :(
