An online 1840 Washington Co., AR, census transcription is in error regarding page 25, lines 15 and 16.An very close examination of a microfilmed copy of this census sheet revealed the following:
Line 14 is Thos Williford, 40-50,
line 15 is David Williford, 20-30 and
line 16 is David Williford, 40-50.
The erroneous online transcription lists Dan Williford, Jr. for line 15 and Dan Williford for line 16.
Thomas and David Williford (lines 14 & 16) are thought by some to be sons of Theophilus Williford who died in Sumner County, TN.The David Williford on line 15 was possibly a son of Thomas Williford and was the husband of (1) Martha Cardwell and (2) Nancy Webb.The older David Williford on line 16 named a son David in 1840.Anyone desiring a copy of this 1840 census record should email me for a copy.
