Re: John Stafford son of Labon Stafford
I've heard from many descendants of Lebon Stafford and Bird Stafford.I don't think I'm connected (unless you go back two or three generations before Lebon) but I think a lot of his descendants made very simular migrations to my Stafford line, i.e. from NC, to Jackson Co., TN, to McDonald & Dalls counties in SW MO.I discovered a lot of very simular names also.I think my Adam Stafford, b. 1788 in NC, might have been a second cousin to Lebon but I have no proof, only a hunch.
Back about a year ago, I exchanged e-mails with a woman from OK, via AR who was researching her line from Lebon.She had a lot of info but I don't remember which child she decesended from.I connected with her thru this board.
Also, a gentleman who reads these boards frequently, has a massive amount of Stafford linage documented and has helped me tremendously.His name is Mike Stafford.
