Family Pages by Surname

Don't rely strictly on the surname as many people list multiple surnames. Generally they list the first surname as the one that has the most content on their page, or the one that has the closest connection to them. Many Sites have a descriptive name for their site with no reference to surnames.

Claudie (or Claudia) Johnson and David L. Buford married sometime around 1883 in Alcorn co. MS. They had four sons who -it has been said - were killed by a train. They had a daughter Myordyeen Buford in 1892 then moved to Redland, Cleveland County, Arkansas where they are seen in the 1900 census by 1910 they are in Walnut township, Nobel county Okla.
