When I went back to tie the Wm Stafford/Francis Mason the dates don't match up down the line in one area. In other words, someone is missing in between-one was either too young to have a child or too old. Have been working and have'nt been able to work on this lately. Can't remember which Stafford didnt connect. My line is thru Alford, sons John Richard Stafford-grandfathers side and Alfred Franklin Stafford on my grandmothers side. C. Nimrod Lunsford Jr and Mary Moris moved to Haywood Co. which changed to Buncombe Co. later. They had 15 children. Gene (who replied) can tell you more about the family on that end than I can.
Hopefully I will be able to work on this again soon.
