Hi E Lockhart,

From the marriage of Josiah (Joseph) Lankford, born in 1832 in Stokes Co, NC and Sarah Ann (Sally) Smith about the same time came 9 offspring:

1) Nancy Jane Lankford, born 1854 in Stokes Co, NC;
2) Margaret S Lankford, born 1855 in Stokes Co, NC (this is
the line where you come from; family records indicate that
she died young in her sleep);
3) Letitia Lankford, born 1857 in Stokes Co, NC;
4) William A Lankford, born 1858 in Stokes Co, NC;
5) Peter F Lankford, born 1859 in Stokes Co, NC;
6) Josiah Lankford, Jr, born 1862 in Stokes Co, NC;
7) Oliva A Lankford, born 1866 in Stokes Co, NC;
8) James Henry Lankford, born 24 Oct 1869 in Tazewell Co,
Va, died 23 Feb 1956 in Meadows of Dan, Va;
and 9) Wallace Lankford, born 1871 in Tazewell Co, Va.

The reason that there is more information provided on James Henry Lankford is that he was my Grandmother Dosia Alifair Lankford's father. She was born 16 Sep 1898 in Richlands, Va, died 27 Sep 1996 in Santa Rosa, Ca. She also had a brother William (Bill) Lankford, born 1890 in Tazewell Co, Va; a brother Frank B Lankford, born Feb 1893 in Tazewell Co; a brother Fred Lankford, born May 1895 in Tazewell Co, Va; and a sister Roxie Lankford, born about 1906.

Josiah Lankford is listed in the 1870 census of Tazewell Co. Va. City, Maiden Springs. Do you know if he may have gone back to N.C. before his death. I am a ggg grandaughter of Josiah. I'll be happy to share what information I have. I also have some pictures of James Lankford, and his grandchildren, through his son William Lankford. Please email me at I'd be happy to hear from you. Thank You Hillybilly cousin Fran

Hi Tonya,

I am not familiar with John Grady Lankford. He may be a cousin to one of the Lankford branches that I'm working with and may possibly be Josiah and Sally's grandchild. I have the 10 children listed that are Josiah and Sally's but unfortunately, outside of James Henry Lankford and his wife Mary Jane White, I have come up empty in filling in the rest of the Lankford children except for some of the spouses. Hopefully, something will come up shortly but otherwise, I am unable to link John Grady Lankford to my Lankfords at this time.
