I am searching for the family of my ggrandfather,Clinton Wesly Gafford,born in 1883 in Texas & died in 1952 in Alabama.He was orphaned as a young child & given to family members(possibly an uncle)who treated him badly.He left home at a very young age.He ended up in Alabama where he met & married Lillie Mae Wallace.They had 3 children:Helen Elizabeth(1903 in Al.),Johnie Clintine(around 1906 in Brazoria,Tx. while living w/ some of his relatives),& William Franklin Gafford(in Al.).Clinton Wesly became a prison warden in Praco,Al. training crime dogs.I've also been told by my cousin that he had a sister(thought to have never married)named Jesse(sp.?) & a younger bro./nephew named Clint Iron Gafford who was sherriff of a big Tx. town.If you have any info. on this family please contact me:kymberlee3@yahoo.com THANKS!
