I believe my family is connected to this William Thetford line. My grandfather Glen G. Jeter b. 14 Oct. 1910 Marion, Williamson, IL and his cousin Bill Morris of Wyandotte, MI were corresponding with each other in 1976 about how their grandparents were brother and sister to Sarah Jane Thetford, who married a William Gower and moved to Piggot, Arkansas.
My great grandmother was Daisy Gertrude Hall b. 12 Jul 1888 Creal Springs, Williamson, IL. Her parents were James Hall and Barbara Ellen Thetford b. abt.1864 Illinois. Her sister was Sarah Jane Thetford b. 1851 d. 1937.
Sarah "Jane" was married to William Gower. They lived in Texas for a short time then moved to Piggot, Arkansas. Sarah Jane and William had a son George W. Gower.
Barbara Ellen and Sarah Jane Thetford's parents were Henry Thetford and Mariah Brandon. Their siblings were: William b. abt. 1851, George b. abt. 1854, John b. abt. 1855, Adeline Lucinda, b. 1861 d. 1891, Thomas b. abt. 1863, Jefferson Monroe b. 1868 d. 1953, Lee b. abt. 1868, and Mary Alice b. 1871 d. 1940.
Sarah Jane marries William Gower 5 Sept 1875 Adeline Lucinda marries John C. Harris 21 Jul 1884 Barbara marries James Hall 24 Sept 1886 Mary Alice marries Phillip Johns
Henry Thetford's father is supposed to be William Thetford b. 1782 d. 1883 and his mother Lucretia Gately b. 1803 d. 1888. Henry had a brother named Anderson b. 1832, and John R. b. 1825.
Lucretia Gately b. 1803 d. 1888, Illinois father John Gately and mother Jemima Mercer.
Most of Henry's family I have some documentation on, but the lines behind them are lacking. Do these lines merge or am I barking up the wrong tree?
