George E. Stanford, Mississippi/Alabama
Posted by: Herb Stanford (ID *****1460) Date: January 31, 2011 at 04:37:45
  of 1702

Looking for information on the parents/ancestors of George E. Stanford, b. abt 1880 in Mississippi. There is a death record for a George E. Stanford in 1957 in Lauderdale County, Alabama.

George married about 1900 to Bertie (Alberta?) LNU in Mississippi and the 1910 census finds the family living in Monroe County, Mississippi. Bertie evidently died before 1920 since we find the family living in Huntsville, Madison, Alabama in that year. In that record, George is listed as a widower and is working in a cotton mill.

George and Bertie had three children:

1. Homer Harry Stanford, b. 1900 in Mississippi, d. 1967 in Canadian County, Oklahoma.

2. Geneva Stanford, b. abt 1904, Mississippi. Geneva married Earnest Puckett, b. abt 1893 in Texas, about 1921 and the family is found living in Fannin County, Texas in the 1930 census.

3. Lonnie H. Stanford, b. abt 1906 in Mississippi. In 1930, he was living in Fannin County, Texas with his sister and brother-in-law's family.

Any information about this family would be appreciated.
