Re: Benjamin Redford, Henrico Co, Va
I agree with your analysis.Benjamin F. Redford born 1832 was almost certainly the son of Benjamin Redford born ca. 1804 in Virginia.His mother was probably Harriett E. Johnson who married his father 8/14/1830 in Henrico County, VA.Benjamin Redford died after 1850 in Henrico County, VA and his widow Mary A. Redford is shown in the 1860 Henrico County, VA Census (Richmond).Mary was probably his second wife.She had a daughter named Lucy F. Redfordborn ca. 1851 in Virginia who was probably named for her presumably deceased older sister of the same name who was born ca. 1838 in Virginia.Mary A. Redford is last listed in the 1870 Brooklyn, NY Census.She was employed as a housekeeper and her daughter Lucy II who was living with her at the time was working as a dressmaker.It appears that son Thaddeus J. Redford died young after 1850 in Henrico County, VA.
