Yep: There is an older Radford cemetary. It is in the woods, "not far" from the presently active cemetary. I have nbot been there, but my aunt, Ruth Hale, got directions and we were going to find it. Unfortuantely, Ruth died. I was told about the more ancient cemetary by men who were place tomb stones in the Vest cemetary. Others have confirmed its existence. It is where James Tazewell Radford, father of Robert, Lewis, Joshua, Sanuel, and George was buried, along with his wife. Probably some of his children are also there. I hope that there might be some vital clues there that would break the log jam of how to get back to the previous generation. The older cemetary is grown over, and I do not know about the legibility of the inscriptions.
I told a current Franklin County resident, who is interested in radford genealogy about the cemetary. She and her husband's families use to own much of the land around that cemetary. She was excited, and said that she would go looking for it next spring, if not before. Her name is Jean Boyd. I contacted her through the Ancestry message board.
