Henry Clay (Sr.), born 12 April 1777, was the seventh of nine children of the Reverend John and Elizabeth Hudson Clay. His father died when Henry was four years old, and his mother married Captain Henry Watkins with whom she had seven more children. Watkins moved the family to Richmond, Virginia, where he secured employment for Clay in the office of the Virginia Court of Chancery, where he displayed an aptitude for law. Clay worked closely with George Wythe, Chancellor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, for four years, and then with Robert Brooke, the Virginia attorney general. Clay was admitted to practice law in 1797.

Clay relocated to Lexington, Virginia, and soon established a reputation for his legal skills and courtroom oratory. By 1812, he owned a productive 600-acre plantation called Ashland and numerous slaves to work the land. He had 60 slaves at the height of operations and likely produced tobacco and hemp.

After beginning his law career, Clay married Lucretia Hart on 11 April 1799. The couple had eleven children (six daughters and five sones): Henrietta (1800-1801); Theodore (1802-1870); Thomas (1803-1871); Susan (1805-1825); Anne (1807-1835); Lucretia (1809-1823); Henry, Jr. (1811-1847); Eliza (1813-1825); Laura (1815-1817); James Brown (1817-1864), and John (1821-1887). Seven of Clay's children died before him as well as his wife. By 1835, all six daughters had died of varying causes, two when very young, two as children, the other two as young women: from whooping cough, yellow fever, and complications of childbirth. Henry Clay, Jr. was killed at the Battle of Buena Vista during the Mexican-American War. Lucretia Hart Clay died in 1864 at the age of 83.

As a leading war hawk in 1812, he favored war with Britain and played a significant role in leading the nation to war in the War of 1812. In 1824 he ran for president and lost, but threw his electoral votes to John Quincy Adams, who made him secretary of state as the Jacksonians denounced what they considered a "corrupt bargain." He ran and lost again in 1832 and 1844 as the candidate of the Whig Party, which he founded and usually dominated. Clay was the foremost proponent of the American System, fighting for an increase in tariffs to foster industry in the United States, the use of federal funding to build and maintain infrastructure, and a strong national bank. He opposed the annexation of Texas, fearing it would inject the slavery issue into politics. Clay also opposed the Mexican-American War and the "Manifest Destiny" policy of Democrats, which cost him votes in the close 1844 election.

Dubbed the "Great Pacificator," Clay brokered important compromises during the Nullification Crisis and on the slavery issue. As part of the "Great Triumvirate" or "Immortal Trio," along with his colleagues Daniel Webster and John C. Calhoun, he was instrumental in formulating the Missouri Compromise of 1820 and the Compromise of 1850. He was viewed as the primary representative of Western interests in this group, and was given the names "Henry of the West" and "The Western Star." A plantation owner, Clay held slaves during his lifetime but freed them in his Will.

On 29 June 1852, Henry Clay died of tuberculosis in Washington, DC, at the age of 75. He was the first person to lie in state in the United States Capitol.

Biography

Henry Clay (1777 - 1852), American statesman, was born in Hanover County, Virginia. Representing his adopted state, Kentucky, he was a member of Congress off and on for almost fifty years, three times an unsuccessful candidate for the Presidency, and from 1825 - 29 Secretary of State.

From the guide to the Henry Clay Papers, 1825-1829, (The Huntington Library)

Biographical note: Henry Clay, a native of Hanover, Virginia, came to Lexington, Kentucky in 1797 and engaged in the practice of law. He was particularly active in land dispute litigation and as a criminal defense lawyer. Active politically in Kentucky, Clay was a state legislator (1803-1806, 1807-1810), a United States senator (1806-1807, 1810-1811, 1831-1842, 1849-1852), a member of the United States House of Representatives (1811-1814, 1815-1821, 1823-1824). He also served as Secretary of State under President John Quincy Adams. A nationally known political figure, Clay is perhaps best known for his efforts to avoid dissolution of the Union over the issue of slavery which resulted in the Missouri Compromise (1820) and the Compromise of 1850.

Clay also played an important role in the growth of Transylvania University in Lexington. Appointed to its faculty as a professor of law in 1805, he taught two years before resigning his position upon his election to the United States Senate. Clay served as a member of Transylvania's Board of Trustees at various times during the next two decades, was actively involved in the selection of faculty and presidents, and frequently acted as a general spokesman for the institution in the East.

On the death of Lexington businessman and Transylvania University trustee James Morrison in 1823, Clay acted as executor of his estate, which left $20,000 to the university and also endowed a sizable trust fund. As a result, Clay was involved in numerous suits made by claimants against the Morrison estate over the next six years.

Statesman, Speaker of the House, Secretary of State, founder of the Whig party, and a five-time presidential candidate.

Henry Clay was born on April 12, 1777 in Hanover County, Virginia. His family, which grew to include sixteen children, would move to Versailles, Kentucky to run a tavern, leaving the young Clay in the care of a boy"s club. When he was sixteen, he was hired as a secretary by the lawyer George Wythe, who went on to teach him law at the College of William and Mary. Clay was admitted to the bar in 1797 and began practicing in Lexington, Kentucky. In 1799, he married Lucretia Hart, starting a family of six daughters and five sons.
