In Reply to: Re: ELIZABETH GAFFORD, 1812, GEORGIA by Mary Stearnes-Henley of 415

Mary, I have a neighbor who has a line of Gaffords. She also has an Elizabeth Gafford b. ca 1810 (according to one census). On the l850 Muscogee Co. GA census pg #369, Fam #5 in the house of Daniel Thompson age 32, next is listed Elizabeth Thompson age 40 (l8l0). This we believe is Elizabeth Gafford, d/o Fanny Gafford (??&her husband Stephen??). Elizabeth Gafford first married to a John Green in Talbot Co. Ga, then married 2nd to this Daniel Thompson.
The rest of this census entry gives a composite family: Susan Jay Thompson (sis to Daniel) age 30, Fannie Gafford age 75 (l775) b. VA (we thought this was her mother), then Patrick W. Green 21 & Martha J. Green l5, both thought to be children from Eliz's first marriage, then begins her Thompson children: Flora Ella l2, James L. 10, Adeline 6, & Ann 6/l2.
By l860 Fannie Gafford is not in their house. There is also on the l850 Muscogee pg #6, a John Gafford age 68 (l788) b. Va & his wife Elizabeth 38, with children Benj., Wm. H, Martha J, & Georgia Ann. These children mostly b. in Houston Co. GA.
Was wondering if you see any connections to your Fanny Gafford. I believe one of the postings said Fanny Grant/Gafford died l8l8.
Were there two Fanny Gaffords?? We are a little confused on this. Can you help us. Thanks for anything.
