Hi. My grandfather is/was Marion Daniel Efird (b.12/25/1929) (son of Roda Gatlin and Lawrence Efird). He lived in Arkansas and married several times. The only thing he ever told my mother about our background was that we were Dutch and that was about it. Can anybody help me out here? I am trying to trace my ancestry as far back as I can for my kids, but, after people pass on, it's a little hard to ask them anything. And my mother claims that the Efirds of NC are not related, because her father never mentioned claim to any of them... I've got no other evidence to back up my mom, but I'm going to assume it's quite possible that the Arkansas and North Carolina Efird's are related. Any help at all, please email or post here. Thanks!
