my grandfather's grandmother was a watford (aka wadford) from dale county alabama. we have them documented back to joseph watford sr dob @1680 in lower norfolk county va and dod @1737, he married elinor weston and had 4 children joseph hr dob @1710, elizabeth vollantine @ 1718, mary @ 1720 and john @ 1723.

my great great grandfather, green berry johnson married mary garon watford in 1847 (her father was barnabus watford and mother was lydia mixon she was born in darlington county sc 01211832. they were married in alabama (dale county i believe)

do you have any other information on them prior to 1680? I do not know when they came into the US, where they came from or if they were in revolutionary war or War between the States (civil war) any help would be appreciated.

my parents and grandparents are all gone, and my only other help has been my cousin who is a mormon. thanks.
