K. Gafford =================== http://www.tsha.utexas.edu/handbook/online/articles/GG/htg17.htmlhttp://www.tsha.utexas.edu/handbook/online/articles/GG/htg17.html GAFFORD, TEXAS. Gafford, also known as Gafford (Gafford's) Chapel, is just off State Highway 11 in west central Hopkins County. It was named for Thomas M. Gafford, who deeded land for a church in 1881. A school was in operation there after 1900 and in 1905 had an enrollment of sixty-four. In the mid-1930s Gafford had a church, a school, and a number of scattered dwellings. In 1935 the community's school was combined with the Antioch school, and in 1943 its church was moved a half mile northwest to a location near the Cedar Grove school and cemetery. In the mid-1980s Gafford had a number of widely scattered houses.
I am researching this family for my grandson.He is descended through John Thomas Gafford's line.
