She was age 20 in 1850, 38 in 1860, 38 in 1870, 47 in 1880, 69 in 1900, so her birth year was probably 1831.

In September 1918 William lived at Pittsburg, KS where he was the proprietor of B&B Furniture store. When he registered for the WW1 draft, he named "Nancy Perry Brewer" at his address as his nearest relative; the draft board person who typed the info must have misunderstood his pronunciation of his mother's name.

         John W Willeford [Y6e1], son of Thomas Young Willeford and America Upchurch, was born 6 March 1849 in Henry Co TN. He was age 1 in 1850 in Henry Co as John W; 11 in 1860 in Henry Co as John W; 21 in 1870 as J W; 27 in 1880, born March 1851 per 1900 census. He grew up in Henry Co's District 4. The 1870 census shows him being born in KY, which would be just a short distance to the north where his grandparents lived during the last years of their lives; all other census records show him being born in TN. In 1880 John’s father lived at Smiths, Gibson Co, and there was a 3 year old grandson in his home. John W was the only son of age to have that son in 1877. Perhaps the grandson was just caught in the 1880 census with John’s parents, while John and his wife Nancy Rebecca "Becky" Foster lived at Davis Shop in Gibson Co in 1880.

The grave plots of this Williford family contained seven Williford and Foren graves, all next to each other (their eldest daughter married J W Foren). Nancy had nine children by 1900, all still alive, and all born in TN. John and most of his children spelled their name with an I, as in Williford, not with an E-

         Lela Willeford [Y6b1c1], daughter of Lawson Willeford and M Hellen Murray, was born in August 1891 in Giles Co. (15u)


         Lena Willeford [Y6g8], daughter of Richard Young Willeford and Lucinda Evalina Potts, was born 28 August 1869 at Murray, Calloway Co KY. She would have been age 11 in 1880, in her parents’ home, but was not there. (JE,28r)


         Lillian A Willeford [Y6g6], daughter of Richard Young Willeford and Lucinda Evalina Potts, was born 13 April 1867 in Calloway Co KY. (JE,28rs)


         Lillie Belle Willeford [Y6b1f3], daughter of Captain S Willeford and Mattie McLin, was born in District 10 of Giles Co TN in 1915. She married George Emmons Yarbrough in Giles Co on 13 May 1933. Her brother Robert signed as a witness. Lillie claimed she was age 21 then. Emmons was age 23, born 30 August 1910 in Lincoln Co, and died 13 March 1999 in Giles Co. In 1930 Emmons lived in District 11 with his maternal aunt and uncle George Washington Yarbrough and Mary Susan Berryhill.

         Lucinda Lancaster Willeford [Y6f] daughter of Polly Young and Willis Wylie Willeford, was born in October 1829 in Calloway Co KY. She married William Etheridge in Henry Co TN on 14 October 1849. He was born in TN on 12 August 1826 and was a farmer. In 1860 he and Lucy lived next door to Lucy's younger brother Richard and older sister Mary in Calloway Co. The 1857 Calloway Co birth records of Lucy's daughter Sara Clementine show that Lucy's husband was Thomas A Etheridge, yet the 1860 census gives his name as William. In any case, Lucy married again, about 1863, to George Hudspeth. He was born in TN about 1811. William had died 26 June 1862 in Henry Co. There were many Hudspeth families living in Maury Co in the 1830s, and since Lucy would likely have visited her cousins in Maury Co, George could easily be connected with the Maury Co Hudspeth families. He died in Calloway Co in the 1870s. Lucy's children appear to be-

1.      Clinton Clauding Etheridge, b Jan 1852

2.      Willis E Etheridge, b 1854

3.      Sara Clementine Etheridge, b 21 Feb 1857

4.      Samuel T Etheridge, b Jan 1860

5.      Emma E Hudspeth, b Aug 1864

6.      Lucius L Hudspeth, b 1867

7.      William Y Hudspeth, b May 1869 (JE, 28qrsb, 22mn)


         Lucy C Willeford [Y6g3], daughter of Richard Young Willeford and Lucinda Evalina Potts, was born 4 August 1859 in Calloway Co KY and died 9 November 1861. Written family records, obviously written about the time of each event, state that Lucy C was born on the above date, but the same record also states that Lucy C Willeford "died November 9th 1861 age too years too monts and twenty one days." This death record conflicts with the birth date. Therefore, her birth date could have been 19 August 1859. (JE, 28q)


         Lula R Willeford [Y6g5], daughter of Richard Young Willeford and Lucinda Evalina Potts, was born 29 August 1865 in Calloway Co KY. She was not in her parents’ home in 1880 when she would have been age 15. (JE, 28r)

         Willie Ida Williford [Y6e1i], daughter of John W Williford and Nancy Rebecca Foster, was born in December 1888 in Gibson Co TN. She always used the name Ida. She married Ernest William McCollum in Gibson Co on 24 December 1902. He was Ida’s next door neighbor in 1900. Ernest was born 4 July 1883 in Gibson Co TN, son of Marion Thomas McCollum and Mary Susan McCaslin. About 1909 they moved to Stuttgart, Arkansas Co AR. Ernest was a carpenter and a building contractor. In the 1920s they moved to Little Rock, and Earnest still lived there in 1942. Ida was probably dead by then; Earnest died at Little Rock on 25 November 1947. They had six children. Only the eldest daughter was born in Gibson Co TN; all others were born at Stuttgart, AR-

         Willis W Willeford [Y6g7], son of Richard Young Willeford and Lucinda Evalina Potts, was born 13 April 1867 in Calloway Co KY. He was not in his parents home in 1880. (JE,28r)


         Wylie Willis Willeford [Y6b], son of Mary Young and Willis Wylie Willeford, was born 15 December 1807 in Spartanburg Co SC. He was called Willi and Willie, and moved to Maury Co TN when he was about 10 or 12 years old, and probably moved south to Giles Co by 1825 when his father bought 87 and three-quarter acres there from John English, husband of Willis' sister Clarimond [Y6c]. Willis' parents moved to Calloway Co KY by 1830, for in that year Willis (husband of Polly Young) was on the Calloway Co tax list, and he was not found on any neighboring 1830 TN census. (Willis' parents died in Calloway Co where they had lived for years.) Young Willis probably also moved to Calloway Co but his ties were now back in Giles Co; he married his second cousin Martha Young [Y1i], daughter of John Young and Nancy Smith, about 1832. Martha was born 29 January 1812 at Beech Hill in Giles Co where she lived until she married Willis. The newly married couple may have spent their first few years in Calloway Co KY or in Henry Co TN, for their eldest child reported his birth place as KY in the 1860 census, although all other census records show that he was born in TN. In 1840 Willis and Martha were in Giles Co where they lived from then on. He was a farmer in district 11 and died there on 2 May 1871; Willis Worley was appointed as the administrator of his estate on May 3. Martha died on 18 December 1877 and was buried in Beach Hill Cemetery with Willie. They had nine known children-

There were other Willeford men of very similar names, thus causing much confusion in researching their histories. Britton Willeford (born in 1742 in VA, Spartanburg Co SC sheriff in 1799) and his wife Lucy Lancaster (born in 1742 in NC), the grandparents of the above Wylie Willis Willeford [Y6b], had twin sons, one was named Willis Wylie and the other was named Wylie Willis; both were born 14 June 1773 and it was Willis who was the father of Wylie W Willeford [Y6b] above. The twins lived in Maury Co in 1820. The uncle, Wylie, had a son, first cousin to Wylie W Willeford [Y6b], who was named Willis Wylie Willeford. The cousin Willis married was Rebecca Row in Henry Co TN in 1839 and they had many children; one was named Wiley Willis Willeford, born in 1846. And Richard Young Willeford [Y6g], uncle of Wylie W Willeford [Y6b], had a son named Willis W Willeford [Y6g7], born in 1867. Other children of Britton Willeford who lived in Maury, Giles, and Henr
