well just thought I would try again seeing that I know a little more about my Lankford man now. I know his name was F.M. Lankford the F.M. was Francis Marion I believe but cannot say that for fact! He was born 23 Sept 1838 That I got from his confederate pension application it dose not say where he was born but I think it was in AL. He married Sirene V. Castro on 23 Jan. 1861 Lafayette Co.,MS (that comes from her widows pension application) and he died 31 Dec. 1912 in Ellis Co.,TX(again her widows application).
When they came to TX from MS they lived in Coryell Co.,and Ellis Co. I am not sure where else they may have lived. They had at least 5 children - John Sidney b. 1866,Malissa Alice b. 1868, Ollie Lee b.1874, and Emma b. 1879 or 80. All these children were born in Lafayette Co.,MS according to the 1880 Census from there.
If anyone can help me with this family I would be grateful! Seems like F.M. Lankford just droped out of the sky in MS and had a family. He served in Bradford's Company, Mississippi Artillery (Confederate Guards Artillery) the last 3 years of the war. from Pontotoc Co.,MS.
I have found a "Marion"Langford on the 1860 Census of Layette Co.,MS as the 22 year old son of what I think says Nancy.
John Sidney Lankford grew up to be my great grandfather so he is the one I know the most about. And I know very little about him! He married Sallie Vines in MS I believe.
They had 9 children Doris Morton b.1889( I do not know where he was born),Carrie Lee b. 1892 in Ellis Co.,TX,Edna b. 1893 in Stonewall Co.,TX,Marvel b. 1895 again Stonewall Co., Stanley b. 1898 Ellis Co.,TX,Travis Oliver b. 1903 all I know is he was born in TX( and he turned out to be my grandfather),Francis Collier b. 1905 Johnson Co.,TX, John Sidney b. 1908 Johnson Co. again and Inez b. 1913 don't know the county but in TX.
That was kinda long and drawn out. But if any of this rings any bells please let me know! The parents of F.M. - Francis Marion- Frank Lankford has been a brick wall for me for years.
