Hi Sandra, My name is Martha Wafer McClatchey. I did some research on my dad's(Rufus W. Wafer) family in the early 1970's, found lots of info in the old census records. I found Great Uncle Rufus's daughter and learned that the family came from Clairborne Parish, La, just down the road form where I was living. I drove there, searched the records, found hundreds of Wafers, found my great grand parents marriage license and some very interesting info about that generation in the Civil War. I even wrote letters to Wafers in Texas and Ark, including Zella(which was returned). I'm retired in Fla. I'll have some free time during Christmas to look in storage for my geneology stuff and will share it. I have some great old photos of Great Uncle Jim and his wife at their place in Texas. Marty
