Good resource for Binford line is Binford Family Genealogy by Mary L. Bruner. She goes back to Anthony Binford who was granted 320 acres of land in Lower Norfolf Co, VA by Sir Wm. Berkeley on Nov. 5, 1665. I got a Reprint of the book form Higginson Book Company -

Here is some info from other sources:
Micajah Binford was born in Northampton County, North Carolina. March 14, 1783. He was the son of James and Hannah (Crew) Binford. In North Carolina he married Sarah Patterson in 1804. He attended the very common schools in North Carolina. The children of this union were: William, Micajah C., Rebecca, married Thomas Jessup; Anna married Henry Winslow. His wife having died, he in 1820 married Miss Morris. The children of this marriage were: Sarah, married Joseph Young, Marion, married Joseph Butler, Martha, married Oliver Andrews; Margaret, married Joseph Butler, Mirian, married Jesse M. Pitts. In 1826, in the spring, he left North Carolina with his family, tarried three months in Belmont County, Ohio, and the same year he arrived in Ripley Township, and moved into the land he had just entered from the government. His family lived in a tent until he had his cabin ready for occupancy. He had a section of land to open and develop. He assisted in building the first meetinghouse at Walnut Ridge, and the first schoolhouse. He was a farmer and a respected citizen. March 25, 1865, he died after a very brief illness. He was a member of the Friend's Church, and a Republican. Micajah Binford, son of Micajah and Sarah (Patterson) Binford, was born July 14, 1812, in Northampton County, North Carolina. At the age of 14 he came with his father's family to Indiana, attended school at Walnut Ridge in Ripley Township, and passed his boyhood in assisting his father in opening up the farm. On the 22nd day of September, 1836, Micajah married Susannah Bundy, daughter of Josiah and Mary (Morris) Bundy. Her parents came from North Carolina and settled in Wayne County, Indiana. Susannah was born there and removed with her parents to Ripley Township where her parents resided until they died. The place is now owned by Sarah Jane Bundy, and her children. Micajah and Susannah began housekeeping on the farm where both now reside, and have continuously for fifty-one years. The old cabin in which they first lived is still in existence. They are the parents of: Ruth, William P., Josiah, Levi, and Micajah M. Mr. Binford is a farmer and has made a success of it. He has settled up numerous estates to the satisfaction of all concerned; was Clerk of the Friends' monthly meeting at Walnut Ridge for twenty-one years; is a member of the Society of Friend's and in politics is a third party Prohibitionist.
