My Francis Marion Stafford was born 5 Jul 1845 to Solomon and Nancy Adams in Missouri. We believe they were living in Andrew County at the time. Anyway that's where they show up on the 1850 Census. His older brother John Quincy was born 17 Apr 1831, in Perry County, Kentucky. He married Thursay Jane Kent on 7 Dec 1856. This marriage is documented in the marriage files of Andrew County. John served, I believe, in the Missouri Company, Fourth Cavalry, during the civil war. Thursay died in Iowa in 1880, and John died in Missouri in 1904.
