Alice B. Mefford Richardson Haines Dawn, In a roundabout way, I got involved with the Mefford's again. In your recent photo request for Dallas Mefford's marker you noticed Charles' marker, which we created a memorial for. In the next lot east of Charles' site, I found Alice B. Mefford's (mem#150211203) grave site while doing other research. She was first married to a Amos Richardson and then to a Oscar M. Haines and she's buried between the two. I can't seem to find the burial location for the parents, Thomas and Hulda Mefford and it would be good if links could be made for the family. If you are related somehow I would be glad to transfer the Mefford memorials I've created to you. Fred
RE: Englewood Cemetery My error! When I looked at Laurel Oak I had counted a Masko Medford (see mem# 113864921) with the Meffords. As it turns out that is a duplicate with Masko Mefford (see mem# 31343484). I think the bio for Dallas Mefford pretty much confirms Dallas and Charley were brothers and it seems that an Alice B. may possibly have been a twin to Dallas. An 1860 Owen Co., KY census shows there was another sibling named Sallie L. Mefford. Good luck with your Mefford searches.
RE: Englewood Cemetery You're welcome! I've created a memorial for the other stone seen in photo for Dallas and included a photo of the marker (Charles Adams Mefford 1849-1921, mem#150003956). The other Mefford found in Englewood is a Chekotah M. Miles Mefford 1934-1956 daughter of Ernest & Ida Mae Miles. She's buried in a different lot from Dallas & Charles and I haven't been to see if there's a marker for her yet. I've not been able to find a spousal connection for her as of yet either. Also found there are ten Mefford's buried in the Laurel Oak Cemetery, Windsor, Henry Co., MO.
RE: James & Caroline Bell Hi Dawn, Good luck finding your Bells. Many years ago I started out trying to find a Jane (Bell) Vance, my gg-grandmother. There were MANY MANY Jane Bells. Fortunately, my cousin knew a little about the family and had a biography of Jane's brother, James Bell. She had a Federal Census record showing Jane's daughter, Cynthia, living with her Bell grandparents in 1870. Her mother had died a few years before during or shortly after child birth. Bingo. That started me on the right track to finding the right family. After 10 years plus of research I finished a book about the family with almost 800 pages. So, don't give up. Just keep searching.

Lavina Huff Got a chance to go to cem. photoed Lavina and Calvin. Her stone has March 1,1820. Also added a Nancy Ann Noah, Huff stone. Noticed when I came back that the wrong photo was added to Lucretia O. Huff. Will swing back by and find her stone.
