1870 JOHN W. BURFORD WAS A SHOEMAKER, AMHERST CO. VA.

JOHN W. BURFORD IS MY GG GRANDFATHER. MY GG GRANDMOTHER WAS SARAH E. BURFORD. I WAS FORTUNATE TO CONFIRM THIS AFTER RECV'G MY G GRANDFATHER'S DEATH CERTIFICATE.
I KNOW MY GG GRANDFATHER WAS ON A 1870 CENSUS: ELON, AMHERST CO., VA., LISTED W/SARAH, MY GG GRANDMOTHER AND MY GRANDFATHER JOHN J. BURFORD.

I HAVE A FEELING MY GG GRANDMOTHER MIGHT HAVE PASSED AWAY AT A YOUNG AGE BECAUSE THE ONLY OTHER CENSUS I HAVE RECV'D ON HIM WAS A 1880 CENSUS, ELON, AMHERST CO., VA WITH A LADY BY THE NAME OF CLARA AS HIS WIFE.

I AM HOPING MAYBE SOMEONE CAN ASSIST ME IN LOCATING HIS PARENTS NAMES, WHERE HE CAME FROM, WHERE HE PASSED AWAY AT, ETC.... THE SAME INFORMATION ON MY GG GRANDMOTHER SARAH.. bETTER YET, ANY AND ALL INFORMATION WOULD BE WONDERFUL.. :):)

SINCERELY,
SUNSHINE
