Over the years, I've been searching for info on my DADE - LANKFORD family in Lewis County Missouri. And I have found some of my ancestors along the journey. I'm still searching.
I 've located my Great Grandparents' Robert and Charlotta Lankford's marriage record. Charlotta's parents, Isaac and Frances Dade were witnesses to the wedding. I was surprised when I saw their names on the record.
While I was searching for my Lankford connections, I came across a Miss Annie LANKFORD and a Mr. Westley JOHNSON. They married on Sept 17, 1871. I thought, maybe Annie could have been related to my Lankford family connections.
I began to search for Annie / Anna Lankford - Johnson. I found info on her on the 1880 census in Lewis County. She was listed with her husband, Wesley and their children.
