Retherford/Redeford in Adair County, KY

From the looks of the message board there is already enough confusion over the spelling of the last name but I will add to it. My name is Jimmie Redeford, my Grandfather Roy Redeford was born in Sangamon County, IL about 1902. His father Willam Wesley was married in 1894 as a Retherford in Adair County, KY to a Lydia [Lillie Bell] Wilson. His death certificate, ca 1949, listed a Steve Redeford and a Jannie Garrison as his parents, but I believe it should have been his grandparents Stephen Retherford and Lousia Jane Garrison who were married in Adair County about 1831, there were 13 children listed on the 1850 census schedule living with them but most were identified only with an initial. Stephen was the son of Robert Retherford and Mary Rogers. Also, there was a marriage of Sallathial S. Reatherford to Althusia Garrison in 1856 in Adair County the surety on the marriage bond was a Stephen Reatherford. If anyone can expand or clarify the above, please contact me JimmieRedeford @
