I am looking for information on Dunford's that were in Clay Co. WV in 1860. the 1860 Census list Thomas age 45, Honor age 40, Malvina J. age 10, George W. age 8, Thomas J. age 7, Rebecca J. age 5, James age 3.
There were no other Dunfords listed for that year in Clay County.But in 1860 in Clay Co. Elizabeth Dunford age 16married Madison Stephenson age 39. I think she was the daughter of Thomas and Honor.
in the 1870 Census for Clay Co. George W. Dunford age 18 is living with Madison and Elizabeth Stephenson along with Hellena Dunford age 10.
In 1880 Census for Clay the only Dunford listed is C. Dunford age 10, a boarder, living with Pricilla Stephenson and family.
Thomas J. Dunford (from above listed) married Ann P. Morris on 12-12-1880.
Felicity Caroline Stephenson (from Madison and Elizabeth) married William Riley Dunford.
Hellena Dunford married William Parker Williams on 10-7-1869.
Malvina (from above) married John Holcolm on Dec. 1871.
I really need to know where William Riley Dunford came from. On the deeds he is listed as William R. or W.R. Dunford.He owned a store with James Reed in Clay and was partners with James Reed on many land dealings.
