Re: Staffords of Chesterfield County, SC
My line goes through the Stafford from Cheraw, South Carolina.My great grandfather was John Cary Stafford b 6 Mar 1884 in Chesterfield Co.He married Minnie Bessie Briggman on 9 Oct 1900 in Cheraw.His father was Daniel Stafford b 20 Jun 1860, d 9 oct 1934.Other children that I have record of are Bessie Ailene, Henry, and Hattie Mae.
Daniel's dad was John Calhoun Stafford b dec 1833.other children Duncan, James, Mary, and Joseph.
John Calhoun's dad was Duncan.other children Mary Ann, Louisa, Alexandria, Daniel.
Duncan's dad was John.Mortality record of 1850 shows John died 18 Mar 1850 and that he was from Scotland.
I know little about the wives.Two resources that have helped me are St. David's Parish, S.C. registrar 1819-1924, and the Cheraw Hill Baptist Church Records 1822-1934.
I like to know a lot more about the Staffords during this time than I do.If you have more please send it to me.Thanks.
