All of these families settled in the area of Gallatin which became Saline Co, in 1830's - 40's and intermarried, also many other common names - Ledford, Furguson, Russell. I'm seeking info prior to 1830 which links Williford with these names, esp. in NC and TN. My gggrandfather, John B. Williford, came in 1840 w/1st wife and 6 children from somewhere in TN, prior to that NC. These families all attended Liberty Baptist Church and many are buried in Liberty Cem., Sunset Hill, and Russell/Salem Cem. in Harrisburg. Anyone w/further connections / info, please help! Most greatful!
