Looking for WILLIAM JASPER STANFORD . Do not know his date of birth or death. I do have a census of his wife in Colbert Co. in 1880. Her name was MANY OR MARY STANFORD. She had a daughter name CATHRINE age 20, PHILLIP age15, ALICE age 13, Mollie age 10, and MATTIE age 8. So I figure he had to die sometime after 1872. I have been told that MANY or MARY'S maiden name was GATES. She was also full blooded Indian. I was also told her real first name was AMERICUS. I will appreciate any help. Thanks Sharron

Surname: RAYBURN
From:  Michael Rayburn
Date:  Dec 31, 1997 :
I am searching for family information of Samuel Mac Rayburn.  Mac is believed to be the son of Howell Jackson Rayburn who lived in Franklin/Colbert Counties during the 1840's - 1850's.  Mac may have been born in Franklin/Colbert Counties in 1857.  Mac married Sarah L. in Lauderdale Co. in 1880.
