Wofford of SC and KY 1700-1800
I am at a brick wall and hoping some little bit of information will get me over (or through) it.
We are looking for the source that shows James Wofford b 1784 SC d 1837 KY is the son of Benjamin Wofford b 1754 SC d 1846 KY and Elizabeth Martin b 1766 SC d 1852 KY.
Then we are looking for the source that shows James Wofford had a son Adam b 1800 KY d 1892 KS.Marriage records for Adam show his mother to be Mary An(n) Unk, but James Wofford supposedly married Abigail Carter.
Also, a source showing that Elizabeth Martin was a full-blood Cherokee Indian.
My husband's Uncle Bill Lane (Blanche Worford was his mother), says their family is Cherokee, and his sister Lelia, said the grandmother was from Tennessee.Bill is 98 years old and sharp as a tack.Very certain of what he says and he also said emphatically their name is pronounced 'Wofford' not sounding the r.
Any ideas, thoughts or info about this family will be greatly appreciated.
