In Memory of Silbings Nymadula "Nym" Lankfard and Frederick A. "Fred" Lankfard


Frederick and Nymadula    were the sons of Robert Louis and Charlotta "Lottie"
(DADE) LANKFORD / LANKFARD.
They may have passed and were buried in New York,
between Sept 29, 1961 to July 25,1966. 

Frederick A."Fred"  Lankfard
He was born on Jan 28, 1878 in Canton, MO.
He was married to Mollie Bell Burtch / Burich.
He was a traveling musician.
 Nymadula  "Nym" Lankfard
He was born on Feb 29, 1896 in St. Joseph, MO.
He was married to Hattie McDaniel. 
Nym worked as a labor and traveled. 
Nym was married to Irene Graham.
They had two children.
Nym was also married to a Gertrude "Gertie"
I hope to piece together the puzzle of the Lankford / Lankfard siblings. Fred and Nym are the last two, I have no death dates. I have no trace on Nym. Perhaps his name was misspelled. 

There was a Frederick A. Lankfard listed at 601 E. 167th St. Bronx, NY, 10456-4408.  Not for sure if this Frederick is related. This Frederick's occupation: Building and Grounds Cleaning and Maintenance Occupations.

God bless you.

A Special Day: March 28, 1937.


In Memory of My Parents' 80th Wedding Anniversary
 

In the year 1937, Easter Sunday fell on March 28.
That was the day my parents wanted to get married.
And so, they eloped in Kansas.

They were married at the home of Reverend Bell.
He who preformed the wedding ceremony.
My father's step father, Chilton Lyle was a witness.
My parents decided to move to Nebraska for a few years
and they later returned to Missouri where they were born.

My mother was 16, almost 17 in 24 days
and my father was 24 and 5 months of age.
From this union came 19 children. 15 sons and 4 daughters.
God blessed my parents with 52 and 1/2 years of marriage.
They left a legacy that lives on.
They are missed but never forgotten by family and friends.

Making Discoveries As The Journey Continues

Our ancestors left paper trails... etc. on their journey. Many of our ancestors have been forgotten. Only what is remembered and or recorded, lives on. Their descendants are the historians to pass down the family history. My DNA is 73% African American. As for the other 27%, I know very little info about. I thank God for my DNA make up. 

I don't know what got me hooked on wanting to know more about my ancestors.  I would look at old family photos. I would wonder...

This Article began my quest to search for my African American ancestors. It's been interesting along the journey. I made discoveries about this article. I began a search on the information that was written on my father's, side.

I know that we can't know every thing about our ancestors. We have to leave room for mystery. But, with whatever our ancestor left us, should be treasured.

I know that there were some sad things that we read about our relatives. It's with God's grace that we can receive comfort from what we come across. We all struggle and suffer things in life.

 There are good things that our ancestors left with our.  Only if we can go deeper to find out that they left. Where do we start? How do we go about searching?

This Article began my quest to search for my African American ancestors. It's been interesting along the journey. I made discoveries about this article. I began a search on the information that was written some years ago.

Article written in the early 1970's.
Taken from a Iowa newspaper

Oh, how little a searcher can know about their ancestors and come across a gold mine of information while searching for their family connections. It's possible. I have some long lost relatives who have made the family connections. I believe that there are more.

I hope that you will have some interest in where your ancestors came from.  It will take some time in the searching.  It's an adventure as things unfold.  I hope you make the quest to want to know more about your ancestors. The future generations will be thankful that someone took the time to record what they discovered about their ancestors.

Thanks for reading.
God bless you.S.A. Blakley

Greetings! Happy Twenty Seventeen!

Welcome to another New Year!  We have a fresh new beginning. Where will we start?

I plan to review some of what I've discovered over the years. I have a lot. Some things, I forgot that I have. There are things I have to update and make some corrections.

It takes time and a lot of patience to explore family history. We all have a story to share. Know one knows your story as well as you do.  We have to want to share what we know about our ancestors.  I hope people will share.

I wish you the best of 2017.
If you haven't searched your search for your family history, I hope you do.
Start with what you know... asked family members what they know.
Family history is an adventure to journey through.
It's takes a lifetime to do.
And one person can't do it all.

Thanks for reading.
God Bless you.
S. A. Blakley
