Pioneers of Wiregrass Georgia.
Joshua Clary, oldest son of Upton and Sarah Clary, was born in
1822 in the 3rd district of Appling County.
He was married in 1842 to Cassandra Westberry, born 1828 in Appling
County, daughter of Noah Westberry, son of Moses, of the Friendship
community of old Appling.
Shortly after marriage Mr. Clary and wife settled on what is now
known as the old George Madray farm about two miles east of Madray
Springs and about eight miles northwest of where Jesup now is.
Later, he acquired considerable land to the south, as far as Goose
Creek, a distance of about four miles. In later years he moved
to one of his farms near Goose Creek, and after a few years he
built a new home on or near Goose Creek about two miles south
of Madray Springs; some of this land is still in the Clary family.
Mr. Clary engaged in farming all adult life, and also engaged
in the timber business, cutting the huge pine trees and hauling
the logs to nearby Altamaha River where they were floated to mills.
He also had a wide reputation as a blacksmith, and with the help
of slaves and some hired help, he produced and supplied a good
deal of supplies for the Confederate cavalry during the war.
Mr. Clary died at his home on Goose Creek in the summer of 1906
and was buried in the Clary cemetery east of Madray Springs. His
wife survived and died about 1914 and was buried beside him.
