The note below should say my Grandmother is still alive, not my great-grandmother. The error is my mistake, someone copied and pasted my original post. My grandmother, mentioned in the note above, has since passed away.

I read on her profile it was not known when or where she married William Stanford. She is my GGGG-Grandmother. I was able to find, on Ancestry.com that they married 29 Jan 1813, in Bulloch County, Georgia.

Their children:

Emaline Stanford b. ABT 1817 d. 1859

Joseph Stanford b. ABT 1825 d. 25 JAN 1877

Elizabeth Stanford b. ABT 1827

Rebecca Stanford b. 10 Feb 1834 d. 5 JAN 1911

William Stanford b. ABT 1835

Martha Stanford b. ABT 1836 d. ABT 1859

Susannah Stanford b. ABT 1840 d. AFT 1900

My mom did a lot of this research before she died in 2001. My sister has done some, I just recently started researching. My mom left a lot of papers behind that I am TRYING to get my sister to get out of her garage before it all gets too old to read. I am hoping she will start doing that sometime soon.

I will research more. I go back and forth on the names, when I hit a brick wall. Go back again later.

I have been trying to find out what happened to Martha as I know she left behind a 4 year old child, Mary Ann Faulk, when she died. Her husband, Clark J. Faulk died in the Civil War, around 1864. My aunt is going to ask my grandmother if she remembers hearing her mother, Mary Ann Harris, being told what happened to her Mary Ann Harris' great grandmother, Martha Stanford Faulk.

I have noticed while doing research that in 1859 about three or four members died in that same year, same county, leaving me wonder if the flu had passed thru the area. Or something similar.

Martha Stanford Faulk's little girl, Mary Ann Faulk was raised by Elizabeth Stanford. Elizabeth Stanford's daughter, Elizabeth Stanford Smith, and her two children had moved in with Elizabeth, who was now a widow. Also Caroline Blanton, grandaughter of Elizabeth Stanford, daughter of Emaline Stanford Blanton, had also moved in with her.

My great-grandmother is still alive. She was 94 this past March. Elizabeth Stanford is in my maternal line.

I have a little more information. I worked all night, as I do every night, getting a bit tired so names are gonna be confusing to think thru here pretty soon. I better stop. :)

Have a great day.

Betty J. Tindle

GGGG Granddaughter of Elizabeth Olliff Stanford.

It may be possible to confirm family relationships with Elizabeth by comparing test results with other carriers of her mitochondrial DNA. However, there are no known mtDNA test-takers in her direct maternal line. It is likely that these autosomal DNA test-takers will share some percentage (beta) of DNA with Elizabeth:
