Sorry for taking so long, but I've just started trying to research my past and I'm very slow at collecting my information.I've just recently come accross part of my grandfather's obituary.Marvin Glen Dunford, Sr. was born in Shumate, VA Nov 11, 1913 and died in Pearisburg, VA on June 29, 1991(both of which are in Giles Co. I believe).We was the the son of CW and Katherine Dunford and preceded in Death by Brothers Arnold and Dwight(Bud).I didn't see anything about sisters or living siblings, but I haven't gotten the whole obituary yet. I read something that stated the Pearisburg Dunfords are decendents from Isaac Dunford, b. 1762, d. 1838.But I don't know how reliable the information is.
I actually was raised in Richlands, VA(in Tazewell Co.), but I didn't really know the Dunfords in that area. I hope any of that information is helpful.I'll let you know if and when I find more information.
