My Dunfords, or at least half of them, come from the same line as yours, so please e-mail me about your findings. One thing I want to mention is about William T. Dunford and Elizabeth. It seems William was married to Lucy Jane Goodman at first, then when she died in 1848, their child, Mary, lived with the maternal grandparents until after 1850 census, which has William living with Phillip and his new wife, Elizabeth M. After that, they rejoined the family, and by the 1860 census, they had 3 more children. Mary, the daughter of William and Lucy, married my GGGrandfather Samuel Taylor Dowdy. Hope this helps. Bill Dowdy
