Biographical/Historical Note

Clay County is Arkansas' 67th county and was created on March 24, 1873. It was originally named Clayton County after John M. Clayton, a member of the Arkansas Senate; however, some sources suggest it may have been named after U.S. Senator Powell Clayton. On December 6, 1875, it was shortened to Clay County by the Arkansas General Assembly. Some claim it was renamed for the statesman Henry Clay. It has two county seats, Corning and Piggott.
