Lunsford & Giddins Families - 1860 White County, AR
Posted by: Debbie Lunsford Yates (ID *****8907) Date: April 21, 2004 at 14:40:59

Looking for any information on the Giddins and Lunsford families who were listed on the 1860 census of Gray Township in White County, Searcy PO.

In 1850, the family of Ephraim Lunsford, born NC 1816, and his wife, Margie?, born NC 1817, were living in Haywood County, TN. They had children; Mary, Eliza, Adeline, Riley, Caroline and Julia. A 15 year old William Lunsford, born NC, was also listed in the household in 1850.

A couple of the Lunsford daughters might have married into the Giddins family who were also in Haywood County in 1850. The 23 year old Mary Read appears to be 13 year old Mary Lunsford from the 1850 census.

By the time of the 1860 census of White County, AR, only two males were listed in the household, along with 9 females. These females included 42 year old Margie Lunsford, wife of Ephraim Lunsford. The remaining Giddins, Read and Lunsford females appear to be her daughters.

Does anyone have further information on Riley Lunsford or his sisters, or what happened to their father, Ephraim Lunsford? Any information appreciated.
