Re: Dunfords- Cumberland Co. VA

In Reply to: Re: Dunfords- Cumberland Co. VA by Teresa of 442

Teresa,
I have Edward Burch Dunford born 24 May 1822 in Cumberland Co., VA. According to my grandmother's notes, he was born on the old Dunford plantation near Cumberland County Courthouse (that's all I have as to location). He died 6 April 1889 in Richmond, Va. Married Lucy Mildred Keturah Glazebrook 21 December 1848. She was born in Hanover Co. 7 November 1824 and died in Richmond on 1 August 1917. My father, born in 1912, said the he could remember her in bed in his grandparent's home. In her 90's and still had black hair (which my father inherited).

They had the following children:
Sallie England Dunford, Frank Bernard Dunford, Edward Hardin Dunford, and Anne Elizabeth Dunford.

Also, according to my grandmother's notes, Edward had one brother - Phillip Tennyson Dunford.

Of the children, Sallie married Dallas Walker; Frank married Edith Monahan, Edward married Isabel ?. I have the most information about Anne (my ggrandmother). She was born in Richmond VA on 10 October 1849 and died on 13 February 1940. She married George Austin Carr 29 December 1869.

I have a copy of the old England family tree (original is at Aunt Mildred's) with a large Dunford branch, but it's more puzzling than enlightening and doesn't seem to indicate who Edward's father is.

Does any of this help?

Best regards,

Diana
