My mothers family are Halfords. Some pronounce it one way and some another. My grandmother was a Brown from I think the Yazoo city, MS area. I am just beginning my search so I really don't know much. But, I do know that there is a Thomas Halford here in Texas that has lineage from that area too but I think was probably a brother of my grandfather. I think my gfathers name was Henry Halford but not positive. They lived on a farm in Canton, MS and then into town when they were older. He died when I was around six from a lengthy illness that required oxygen. That is all I remember about him. But, my grandmothers name was Annie or Anna Belle Brown. They had 12 children with one dieing at birth or closely thereafter. So, I know of 11 that grew up together. Many have stayed around that area.

Clyde was in MS and died in I think the 60's.
John lived in Greenville, MS through most of his life
and died there in mid 1990's,
WT was in Forrest MS and passed about five years ago, had 6
kids I think who are spread out everywhere. One of
the sons is Tommy and last I heard lived in Tennessee.
Annie Halford Goolsby and her kids live in Brandon, MS,
My mom was Ora Golden Halford Martin and lived in Texas
City since 1951 and died in 2003,
Buck (William Henry) lives north of Canton but I don't
remember the town,
Ernest married Elsie and they lived in Oregon,
Gene was married to a lady named Ruby and lived in Denham
Springs moving McComb, MS where he lives now.
Uncle Fount but don't remember his real name. He lived in Vivian, LA and had four kids: Fern/New Orleans/Shreveport,
Anne Margaret, John, and one more that is a pilot but
I don't remember his name.

Cant remember the other two names.

My mom was married to Samuel Russell Martin, JR from Holmes
County MS eventually living in Carthage MS until
1951. They were married 31 yrs divorcing in 1981.
My brother Samuel Russell Martin, III passed in Jan 2006
My sister Cheryl Lynn Martin Johnson lives in Hitchcock, TX

To our knowledge we are the only Halfords from this lineage
in Texas currently. Cousin Larry (John Halfords son
from Greenville, MS lived in Austin, TX as an engineer
for a while but don't know if he is still there.

Hope this helps some. I know that there were several brothers of my grandfather but I never heard anything about any of them and my mom didn't remember.

If this fits into your group, please let me know and if you would share your info I would truly be grateful. Thanks.
