McCAY Family 1861-1870

I am searching for any information about my McCAY family who lived in the Athens, GA area (Clarke County, Georgia) from 1861 till 1870.

It is known that several members of the McCAY line moved to Georgia from South Carolina from the early 1800s on. I am looking for the location of William Boling McCAY and wife, Arena Catherine Bell-McCAY and children. Three children were born near Athens - William Andrew McCAY, Walter Bell McCAY, and Seldon Boling McCAY - see below for more on them.

Does anyone have any idea about where their farm house might have been located in Clarke County during the years 1861-1870? I know that William was a blacksmith, and worked in a gun factory during the War Between the States. He also served in Captain F.L. Cook's Company - 23rd Georgia Infantry Battalion - also known as Georgia Local Defense - Enfield Rifle Battalion. He was employed at the armory by Captain Cook in 1863 and 1864.

I would appreciate any help. Thank you. Nancy
