This is a copy/paste of a message I posted to the HOBBS & STANFORD surname boards:
Trying to find proof that the Mollie Stanford who m. Wm. W. Hobbs 1886 in Hunt Co., TX was the daughter of James Franklin Stanford and Mary E. Burton. James and Mary Stanford had two daughters before Mary died in NW Alabama in 1869. One was Nancy Elizabeth Stanford (my ancestor) and the other was Mary Stanford b. 1867. Looking at this marriage record for Mollie Stanford and Wm. W. Hobbb it seems this Mollie certainly COULD be the same lady I am seeking, but need proof.
Here is the census data I found for this couple:
