Notes for JOHN GIFFORD:
This is information is a collection of names and dates from various people, some I have actually verified myself but not much.
The primary sources for this family line are:
Aroma Gifford Hammond, she supplied names dates, and copies of marriage certificates.
Richard Wayne Gifford supplied names and dates via the Internet.
Pages from Kentucky Vital Statistics book 1911-1915
Scioto County Ohio Marriages 1803-1860 by Shoemaker & Rudity
