Here is what I know. The information may be a bit out of chronological order,but from asking mom and pop about some of the names that were being dropped in sessions of gossip is all I have. From my childhood,I remember my greatgrandmother Ethel Blackwell. She had a couple (or more) daughters Agnus and Pauline. Pauline had married Ray Gafford.Ray was a descendant of Thomas(corrections are more than welcome)Now,there are three that I've heard talked about. Ray,Homer and one I have met, but cannot remember his name. Ray passed away in 66 or 68. Homer passed only recently. My dad buried his mom,Pauline Carpenter at a cemetary in Tennessee.So far as I know, these were the Gaffords in or about Clarkesville Tennessee.My dad currently subscribes to the newsletter.
