A Brief History: Part 3 ~ The Lankford Surname

A Brief History: The LANKFORD / LANKFARD Family Connections

On the Lankford brothers' World War 1 and 2 Draft Reg. Cards
Most of the spelling of the LANKFORD name was spelled or signed as LANKFARD.

On LANKFORD Marriage Records for Frederick, Lula and Alice...
Their surname was spelled LANKFARD.

The descendants of Robert Lewis LANKFARD Sr., son of Leo and Mary

Tombstones at Ashland Cemetery in St. Joseph, Missouri

Robert Louis' and Charlotta's surname on grave marker spelled LANKFARD. 
Leo's and Mary's surname on grave markers spelled LANKFARD

 ~ Which was it Lankford? Or Lankfard?  ~
We don't know the story behind the surname spelling.
But, I think that there was something to do with it. 

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