|This photo of Nym Lankford / Lankfard was taken in NY.|
The year is unknown. Perhaps in the late 1940's - 1950's.
It was in 2010, I heard that Great Uncle Nym was married to Hattie McDaniel, the actress. I don't know how I missed this while I was growing up. I watched "Gone With The Wind." I didn't know that Hattie had family connections with the LANKFORD / LANKFARD.
And so, I continue to search for info on Nym. Through the years, I stumbled across more info. I started to compile what I discovered about him. Here's my last blog on Tracing The Lankford / Lankfard Family Surname: Through Nymadula / Nym.
Since this last blog, I've come across more info. I stumbled across a record listing a Nym Langford in New York. He and an Irene GRAHAM had a son named Frederick Langford born about 1932 in NY. However, Frederick passed at the age of 5.
I believe that this Nym and Irene are connected with the Lankford / Lankfard Family. I created a Find A Grave Memorial for my cousin, Frederick Langford. I have noted that there are a lot of Fredericks in the Lankford / Lankfard family connections.
I still wonder about my Great Uncle Nym. His life still has mysteries. When and where did he pass on? He was living in Sept. 1961 in NYC. I have not located his death record. And it appears that he didn't have a social security number. He most likely died in New York.
My Great Uncle Nym is on my mother's father's side:
A Descendant of Isaac and Frances (OVINGTON) DADE
