I arrived to a brickwall on my Wolford line. Based on my research, I found that it is truly difficult to determine how Wolford surname spelled out. On all records I found out that my Wolford ancestors for four generations has their surname switched back and forth with two surname spellings: Wolford and Woolford. One record show Woolfolk but I believe it was misspelled.

I wonder if anyone of you could help me sort out the information on my last known ancestors which is in following:

George Wolford/Woolford was born Dec. 14, 1809 in Pennsylvania and died Jan. 4, 1864 in Saline Co. or Pettis Co. Missouri. George married Elizabeth Taylor in Falls Township, Muskingum Co, Ohio on Aug. 12, 1834.

George Wolford/Woolford moved to Muskingum County in Ohio before 1834 then moved to Missouri where he passed away in 1864. All of their children stay in Illinois and immigrated west mostly ended in Colorado.

I got good deal of information on Taylor's side so dont worry about Taylor.

I would appreciate any information anyone has, at least some certain locations I can start looking for Wolford & Woolford folks.

Thank you!!
