Staffords from McDonald County, MO
I don't know much about my paternal grandfather's family other than a few names and that the family lived in SW Missouri for several generations.
My paternal grandfather's name was probably William Stafford but was known as Junior.His father's name was Lee and his grandfathers name was William.His mother's name was Merle Norman and this paternal grandmothers name was Martella or Matilda Stamp (Stafford).He and my grandmother married at a very young age and his parents took him out west (Colorago maybe) around late 1943.We don't know much after that.
Martela Stamp Stafford, aka "Granny Stafford" was supposed to have a son in the Civil war who went blind but I'm not sure.
In info would be appreciated.
