In Reply to: Re: James H Stanfield born 1883 to William F and Annie Stanfield by Joan E. Rambo of 1676

Joan, I did find William and Annie on the 1880 census, but not on the 1910. I would think they would have been listed as being in Grady, Curry County, New Mexico??

In 1900, they should be in Ardmore, Indian Territory, Oklahoma. But even at that, they may have moved around between Ardmore and Texas. I don't think so, though.

Their son, Johnny is buried in the Rose Hill Cemetery at Ardmore. He died abt 1897 (I don't have my notes). I have where Jim (the son in question here) married Elizabeth Mae St Clair in Ardmore in 1902 and their oldest son, Tom, married Oda Carlock 2 years later (or earlier) also in Ardmore.

I know their next-to-youngest son, Clyde Lee, was born in Cooke County, Texas on December 17, 1886. Their youngest son, Willie, was born March 19, 1890, but I don't know if it were in Texas or in Oklahoma. I also don't know when they actually went to Ardmore. Annie could have come into Texas to have her last 3 or 4 sons.

But although I have found on several sources on line that Jim was born in Grayson County, Texas, I have yet to locate a birth certificate. I also do not know if Johnny, the second to the oldest, born 1881, was born in Grayson County, Cooke Co, or some other Texas County. They seem to have moved around a lot.

If they participated in the 1900 census, it should be around Ardmore. I don't have access to census records other than those at free sights as yet, so I find myself in a delimma unless I find the census records completed on USGenWeb or some other independent site (or family site). So far I haven't been able to do that.

Also, I have no idea where William F was before he is in Tarrant County in 1877 or 1878 (I have their marriage certificate from there.)except for the fact that he was born in Georgia. I know Annie was born in Panola County, Texas in 1859 to Thomas M and Polly Hutchins. Thomas M also was born in Georgia. William's sister, Emma Stanfield, was born in abt 1854 GA (unless it turns out they were twins--which I doubt, although they are always together from 1880 on at least)

I have found several sources of Emma marrying Joseph Cunningham in Bartow County, Georgia in 1870. (I had stated earlier that she was 12, but that was misinformation according to the census records of 1880, 1920, and 1930.)
I cannot, nor others who have been trying to help me, find William F or Emma on any Georgia census at all.

I have checked all I can in the different states near Georgia and near Texas. I also have been unable to find when Joseph Cunningham died; nor when Emma married Jordan Pearce. I have found both Emma and Joseph Cunningham in Texas on the 1880 census and Jordan Pearce on the 1880 Texas census. I think Emma may have been in Tarrant Co also and Joseph still living at home in a county nearby.

I know a lot about forward; but keep hitting that brick wall in going backwards to find any of these people before Texas.

Sorry I didn't mean to make this so long. Both the William F Stanfield and the Jordan/Emma Pearce families should be in Ardmore in 1900. Sue
