Ancestor Lost? Genealogy? Family History? Cousin Locator? Surname Surfing? Queries? Grandma was a WOFFORD? Ancestry your thing? Cherokee? You've come to the right place. We hope to become 'THE' repository and central disseminating place for any and all WOFFORD family data worldwide. A sort of loosely gathered WOFFORD Family Association that is free & open to anyone who is interested in the WOFFORD family.
We want to be able to assist you in your genealogical work on the WOFFORD family. Please feel free to submit your Ahnentafels, Gedcoms, Queries & even paper Family Group Sheets if they pertain to the WOFFORD Family by writing to WOFFORD Submissions.
As you can probably tell, I am very new to HTML and webpage authoring! Please forgive the 'scitzo' look of the page. I am learning as I go and will be switching things around for awhile until I find a look that makes sense to me. Just KEEP SCROLLING down for now!!! It's difficult for me to believe that this old dog has learned to do this much! I guess all the brain cells aren't dead yet.
!!BE AWARE!! The WOFFORD Mail-list generates a good bit of mail. It is sporadic, but when I'm feeling prolific you will have WOFFORD mail/data in your box! We have a community of about 50 researchers/cousins who are working on their WOFFORD genealogy. Won't you join us?
The older queries received by private e-mail & postal mail will be entered into the Guestbook in time. Please take a minute before you leave to post or answer a query or just say hi! If you just can't wait for your old queries to show up, go ahead and post them again in the guestbook. It may take me a while to get to them all. Just scroll down and Sign my Guestbook.

From Upper South Carolina Genealogy and History, published by the Piedmont Historical Society, Vol. XI, No. 3.:
*Unity Baptist Church Minutes from Nov 1853 to Jul 1857: following slaves mentioned (owners name in parenthesis): Alexander; Caroline (LAWHON); Eliza; Emaly; Jerry (ALEXANDER); Kinsey (SKINNER); Letty (SKINNER); Lucingda (WOFFORD); Marget (BRISE); Marier (GENTRY); Mary; Mary (HILL); Nimrod (NESBITT); Obednego (LEATHERWOOD); Robert; Salena; Simpson (ALEXANDER); Susan (THOMAS); Tom (Dr. KING); Toney (HOBBY).
*The location of Unity Baptist Church is not mentioned. Therefore, one may pinpoint its location by writing Piedmont Historical Society, P.O.Box 8096, Spartanburg, SC 29305. In the information that I (KDG)received the name was spelled above as Lucingda, so this isn't a typo on my part, but makes me wonder if it wasn't one by whoever typed it?
For now, if you'd like to leave a WOFFORD query, won't you use the Guest Book to do so? When you do leave a query, please consider leaving your U.S. postal address too. E-mail addresses are somewhat transitory. When we get the answer to your query, we'd like to be able to reach you! It sometimes takes a year or two for 'the answer' to come, but when it does, wouldn't you like to hear about it? If so, then please leave us with a postal mailing address. We'll let you know. Or others can just write to you directly.
If you receive your answers from someone writing directly to you, won't you keep us informed? Other WOFFORD cousins with inquiring minds want to know! If we all post to this one place with questions and answers, the better a WOFFORD resource it will become.
Are you or someone you know a descendant of the WOFFORD family, even if the last name isn't WOFFORD? Are you part of a family with WOFFORD connections? Then, YES, you belong here. Please take the time to submit your family info. for posterity's sake!! Leave a trail to your family heritage in a visible place for future generations.
If you find something that helped you, even in the tiniest of ways, I'd love to hear about it. Even if you think you've exhausted my sources talk to me. NEW STUFF comes in EVERY DAY by U.S. Mail and in private e-mail and I won't be able to get all the updates posted quickly! Questions? Give a shout!
Thank you for visiting the WOFFORD Family Clearinghouse Database page at Angelfire. Please take a moment to visit our sponsors.
Ya'll please come back and visit again, right now I'm working on the page almost hourly. So refresh your page often. The site is only a few weeks old. God's blessing on you and your family!
P.S. If you've submitted WOFFORD information to me and it isn't in the database OR posted here yet, please forgive me. I type slowly & I'm dancing as fast as I can. Want to get moved to the top of the pile? Give me a nudge! I promise not to get too grouchy. If my family information is incorrect, please let me know. But BE PREPARED, I'll want you to prove it to me with original source documentation! See a typo? Let me know! Want your family info removed to private status? Let me know!
There are several file cabinet drawers full of WOFFORD information here that we'll get entered & posted as time allows. Remember I'm a full-time home educator, homemaker, wife of 1, mom to 2, stepmom to 3, grandmother to 3, dog owner of 2, daughter, etc., etc., as well.....so time can get short.
I am looking for a good Social Secretary for our little WOFFORD family group. If you'd like to be the chief bottle washer in charge of keeping track of everyone's name, postal address and e-mail addresses, and lines they are researching, I'd like to chat with you. Sorry, the pay is nada dime, but we'll all send you warm fuzzy thoughts on the 35th of every 13th month. Sit, sit, no shoving please. Don't everyone jump at once! There is work enough for everybody.
STILL CAN'T FIND THEM?
Have you seen a really cool website that focuses on one surname? Let me know the URL and we'll cruise by and check out their layout.
