Jack English My name is Jack English from Mitchell County, N.C. In 1738, three sons of William John Ledford left England aboard the "Walpole" captained by James Patton. Henry b.1720, William b.1722 and John b.1724 came to Virginia as indentured servants of Captain Patton, an Irishman. In 1750, Capt. Patton assigned some of his land to each of the Ledford men in 1750. I'm off Henry Ledford. In 1755 Indians attacked at Draper's Meadow and massacred most of the town's inhabitants. Both Henry Ledford and Capt. Patton were killed. Henry's young 12 year son Frederick came to North Carolina with his uncles. Frederick married Margaret McCurry and their daughter, Mary "Polly" Ledford married Simeon Burleson. They were my GGGG grandparents.

Gwen Hamby My name is Gwen Hamby (maiden Ledford), granddaughter of Harley Ledford Sr. of Greer SC. I was curious whether I am related to anyone posting here. I don't know much about where my grandfather came from, but would like to find out. I do know that he came from North Carolina, and was married to Ethel Worley, also of NC. I believe that they were married sometime around 1940, perhaps earlier. It is unclear to me whether they moved to SC before or after they were married, and it is also unclear what area of NC they were orignally from. If anyone has any information, please post. Thanks.

Joyce Chastain My grandfather is Jasper Wilbur Ledford and he married Jessie Malinda Hobgood both from Georgia, and I am very interested if any one knows anything about them.
I have been trying to look for my heritage in all of theses Ledford's that I read about, there must be some kind of connection somewhere.
There children where Nettie Lousie Ledford, Ray Ledford, Hollis Ledford, Worley Ledford, Bertha Ledford, Irene Ledford, Dot Ledford, Lottie Ledford and Bunyan Ledford, there may be more children out there, but this is all I can remember, because I was given up for adoption when I was 8 years old and lost contact with all the family and names.
My Mothefr's name is Nettie Louise Ledford.
If any one can help me it would greatly be appreciated.
