Henderson Cheek's daughter, Matilda, married Lewis Layafette Stafford in 1852 in Dallas County, Missouri. They had 8 children: James Henderson Stafford, born 1853. If my information is correct, the others were Sarah A., John Calvin, Lewis Henry, Cynthia Ann, Martha Elizabeth, Van Rachel, and Robert W. James Henderson Stafford was born in Dallas County, Missouri. I think the others were born in Polk County, Missouri.
James Henderson Stafford had a son, Charles, from his first marriage. He then married Mattie Samantha Polson. Their daughter, Jimmie Stafford Love, born in Bolivar, Missouri, was my grandmother. James Henderson Stafford and Mattie Polson Stafford moved to Oklahoma in 1900. They are both buried in Collinsville, Oklahoma.
Do you have any more information about Henderson Cheek or Julia Ann Bagley? I thought they moved to Missouri from Tennessee. Were they from North Carolina?

Lanette, I tried to e-mail you but I kept getting it returned. The last time I found Julia and Henderson Cheek was on the 1880 Federal Census. He was 75 and she was 71. As far as I knew, they never left Wilkes Co., N.C. I don't have Matilda Cheek after the 1850 Federal Census where her age was listed as 10. Where did you get the information that Henderson Cheek and Julia Bagley were your Matilda's parents? I haven't been able to go back farther than Henderson Cheek. On the 1880 Federal Census, he indicated that he was born in Virginia, but I haven't been able to place him there.

Dianne,
Clearly, if your Matilda Cheek was 10 in 1850, then she could not be the same Matilda Cheek who married Lewis Layafette Stafford in 1852. My Matilda Cheek was born in 1836. However, there HAS to be a connection, because too many of the names are the same.

Another descendent of Matilda Cheek wrote in October of 1999 that she thought Matilda Cheek's father was named Eli, which you listed as a brother of your Matilda Cheek. Our Matilda Cheek Stafford gave her first son the same middle name as your Matilda Cheek's father's first name. Maybe she was a sister to Henderson Stafford and their father's name WAS Eli, since Henderson gave a son that name? Maybe Henderson named his daughter, Matilda, after the Matilda Cheek born in 1836? There must be a fairly close family relationship. Do you have any ideas?
I can't understand why my e-mail isn't working. It is foxes_5@hotmail.com. Maybe I wrote it wrong.

Thank you so much for all your information on the Cheeks!! Through your info that I found on Ancestry.com I was able to obtain a wealth of info. My GG grandfather was Elmore Wesley Cheek whose daughter Plutine Catherine Cheek was my G grandmother and I remember her visiting us when I was a very small child.

As far as I know, the only information about Henderson's ancestry comes from the census when he indicated that he was born in Virginia. Aaron Wesley and Lucinda Byrd Cheek are also my ancestors. I'll be glad to share information if you e-mail me.
