We only corresponded with John S. Mayfield.At the time his father's genealogy records were still in storage. One of our 4th cousins (Katherine)had written a paper, which pops up on the internet periodically, stating our family (Abraham Mayfield - 1769-1851 Licking Co. Ohio) was part of that particular Texas Mayfield family (our history would have been easier to trace IF we were!).The cousin was a g-dau of an Elisha (d.in Missouri) of which little was known during her lifetime.By tying in with that other family, her Elisha would have been from Tennessee-Kentucky area. It is so easy to get off on the wrong family. This is the reason we were trying to contact Sen. Mayfield's family.We now know more of our own family and SO FAR do not have a connection with them.We continue to search for that elusive documentation that will connect our Abraham to one of the other Mayfield families in Pennsylvania-Virginia.
