Messenger - Vol. 3, No. 4, Page 27 Summer 1994 Multiple connections Spring Reunion provided an opportunity for Signe L. Clayton, vice president of the Class of 1995, and Harvey Newton Brown, Delaware '21, to meet YoUDee and discuss the relationships they share. Although their University connections cover a span of 74 years, their personal relationship extends over a period of more than 300 years. They are seventh cousins twice removed and are descendants of William Clayton (1632-1689), a Quaker and friend of William Penn, who was a member of Penn's Provincial Council. William Clayton and his family reached New Castle on the ship Kent on June 10, 1677. Other known descendants of Clayton who are UD alumni include Anne Clayton Nesbitt '42 and Carolyn Nesbitt DiMuzio '71. This bit of history was provided by John M. Clayton Jr., assistant director of the University's Development Office, former University archivist, campus bus tour guide at spring reunions for nearly 25 years and father of Signe. Clayton would be interested in knowing of other UD alumni who are descended from William Clayton. He can be contacted at the University's Development Office.
