In the 1870 Grand Glaize Township, Jackson Co. AR Census, Jane Wolford is shown as age 46 b. KY and sons William age 18, Ramsey and Thomas Wolford. The ages match for both the marriages of Jane Wolford and her son William Wolford listed below when he married Marthy Turner:

Living with Jane Wolford and family in the 1870 Census were June Shackelford 45 b. SC, Amanda 14 b. TN and Joseph Henry 21 b. TN working on the farm. Joseph Henry married Amanda Shackelford February 14, 1871 in Jackson Co. AR. Joseph was the son of William Henry and Elizabeth Russell who married in 1831 Hardin Co. TN.
Was June Shackelford the sister of Jane Wolford or was she also a Wolford who married a Shackelford?
If the above families are familiar, please let me hear from you. Jane Wolford Simpson died while caring for my Mason ancestors 1875 in Grand Glaize, Jackson Co. AR. Both the Masons and Jane died of the flu within the week. I believe the ancestors of this Wolford family may hail from Southside VA as do my Mason lines. The Henry family above are also my direct ancestors.
Hoping someone will also have the above families in their lines. I will be happy to share source documents.
