|Bio and Links|
Finis Pitchford and Ada Acrey are my Great-grandparents. They along with Finis' brothers and a sister moved from Kentucky and were pioneer grocers and business owners in Dallas, Texas. Finis opened his first grocery, F. Pitchford Meat Market at 347 Bryan Street in 1898. My Great-Great-grandparents are Judge Nero C Pitchford and Elizabeth Gatewood of Long Creek, Allen County, Kentucky. My Great-Great-Great-grandparents are Orange Davis Pitchford (Yes, I am an Orange Davis) and Mary E Fitzpatrick. My Great-Great-Great-Great-grandparents are Col. Elias Pitchford and Ann Meredith Davis from North Carolina. |
Col. Elias Pitchford, originally from Virginia, and other militia men of 1812 are responsible for the establishment of Allen County, Kentucky in 1815. The county was named in honor of Col. John Allen who lost his life in the massacre at the Battle of River Rasin.
Col. Elias Pitchford's parents are William Thomas Pitchford (he served in the Revolutionary War) and Sarah Stiles of Chesterfield, Virginia.
William Thomas and Sarah's sons were Daniel, William D, Elias and Nathaniel Haywood. Apparently, William Thomas and sons went to Granville, North Carolina where the sons found wives. William Thomas with three sons; Daniel, William D, and Elias, went to Barren County, Kentucky about 1810. After 1820, Daniel went to North Carolina, William D went to Illinois, Elias stayed in Kentucky and Nathaniel Haywood, who did not go to Kentucky, had left North Carolina in 1803 and settled in Georgia with his wife, Alsey Gober.
William Thomas' parents are Samuel Pitchford and Amy Bevill. Samuel Pitchford's parents were Joseph Pitchford and Elizabeth Pitchford (also a Pitchford) out of Pitchford, England. Each had received land grants in the British Colony, King William, in Virginia. Joseph and Elizabeth arrived about 1702. Their only son, Samuel, was born about 1705. Joseph and Elizabeth never had other children and Samuel, their only child, survived, grew up, married and had eight of his own surviving children. Given that infant mortality and childhood mortality was high, there would not have been all of us if Samuel had not made it to adulthood. So now the rest is history.

I don't know anything about Infant Pitchford. I am not related. I just entered it. But will answer any questions I can. Nancy

Is her husband, Thomas Craddock Gober buried in the same cemetery? He died between 1850-1860 Wood Co., Texas. Thank you.
|GBK||RE: Clarification?/Wiley P. Warwick|
I have been trying to figure out the confusion with the Warwicks on FindaGrave. It's very muddled, but I think I see the problem.
On several pages, Wiley P. (Asbury's father)is listed as Asbury's spouse instead of parent.
(Also, Wiley Asbury Warwick is on FindaGrave (in Mossy Cemetery) twice. One time spelled Asburry.)
Thanks for all you do,

Can you confirm if Martha Ann is the eldest child of Lewis and Rebecca? I did not see her name on the list of children. I believe her mother is also buried at Annetta, Parker County, Texas. Thanks, Mary
Apologies. Hit the wrong button.
