My grandmother always told my mother that when the family moved to Preble County, Ohio they had relatives nearby. She always said that the Seals family were related through the Coldirons. Nathan's parents were to be George Washing Willeford and Mary Coldiron. Now, Grandma has passed away and we are trying to remember and figure out how we were related to them. Walter Willeford was my grandfather; his father was Nathan L. Willeford; and his father was George Washington "Watt" Willeford and Mary/Sarah (Coldiron?). I have found no marriage record for GWWilleford and Mary Coldiron, but have looked through the family tree on ancestry for the Coldirons of Lauretta Helen ("Lells") Coldiron (who was the mother of Kathryn Seals). I went back to the furthest Coldiron in that tree and then came forward looking for a Mary/Sarah who would have been born about 1830. I found Mary the daughter of Jesse Coldiron and Lavina Blanton; she was to have been born about 1832. According to the birthplaces of her siblings, she was probably born in Harlan County too. I don't really know where my GW Willeford was born, but I think he was probably born in Bell, Knox, Clay, or Harlan County. I do know from the census records that he was born in Kentucky. Has anyone done any research on Mary the daughter of Jesse and Lavina? Did she die young or could she be my Mary/Sarah Coldiron Willeford? I would love to find that I am looking for the right person. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
