My husband's grandmother is Nellie Dunford of Montcalm, WV. Her dad was, we believe, Chester or Clarence Arthur Dunford and her mom Mary E. Gills.
I believe I have found her dad as a child on the Mercer County WV census simply listed as Arthur Dunford, along with brother Monroe or Monroy Dunford but living with their grandparents, S.B. and Catherine GRIFFIN and uncle Isiah GRIFFIN. No parents.
Any clues here that could help me link Arthur to his parents?
Also, my gr gr gr grandmother Mary was a DUNFORD married to a James Carver in Tazewell. She later moved to Mercer County, too. Anything there would help me too. And yeah, I know, maybe I should have done this genealogy BEFORE I married???!!!
