The next child was my g-grandfather, John Turner Dunford b.1838 in Ala. Next is Phillip Parker Dunford b.1840 in Miss. Next is WilliamDunford b. 1842 in Miss. Next is James Dunford b. 1844 in Miss. The federal census of 1850 finds this family in Perry County, Ark. In 1862 John and his four sons joined the confederate army. William and James were killed in battle and John Franklin Dunford died of some illness. The federal census of 1870 finds John Turner Dunford, Phillip Parker Dunford and their older sister all living in Yell county at Galla Rock. They migrated to north Texas around 1877. Phillip Parker Dunford was a J.P. in Montague county and eventually became the county judge. John Turner Dunford became a Methodist circuit riding preacher. He moved to Grady I.T. around 1885 and died there in 1898.
