A Brief History: Part 2 ~ The Lankfords / Lankfard Brothers

A Brief History: The LANKFORD / LANKFARD Family Connections

Three of The LANKFORD Brothers  lived in New York
around the late teens / 1920's and until their death
Louis "Add" Lankfard , Frederick "Fred" Lankfard
and Nymadula "Nym" Lankfard
Brother, Charles Lankford came to New York don't know the year.
The brothers followed each other as they were on the R.R.
Note that Charles returned to Kansas City Missouri.

The only known photo of the brothers together.

The year when this photo was taken is not known.

The Other LANKFORD Siblings
in St. Joseph, Missouri and Denver, Colorado

Brothers, Leo and "Jim" James stayed in St. Joseph, Missouri.
Along with sister, Lula.

Sister, Anna Alice Smith lived in Denver, and Kansas City, Missouri. She came back to St. Joseph, after her husband passed in 1948.

Isabella Nickerson and her family were the only ones who stayed in Denver, Colorado.
It wasn't until late 2014 when I made some connections with a descendant of Isabella.
They were searching for Isabella's family connections also.
They couldn't make the connections.

I'm continuing on the search to find other family connections
on the Robert and Charlotta Dade Lankford / Lankfard branch.

There has been so much new discoveries since...
I posted this original blog The Lankford / Lankfard Family on July 10, 2010.


  1. Wonderful photo of the family.

  2. Wasn't Nym married to Hattie McDaniel for a bit?
