General Notes: Wife - Elizabeth RAIFORD

Elizabeth lived in Victoria, Marshall County, Mississippi in 1840.

"My gggrandfather's baby sister (Elizabeth RAIFORD) came from Edgefield Co., SC before the 1850 census, probably traveling with her older brother William D. RAIFORD and his wife, Elizabeth LARK. Elizabeth RAIFORD is said to have married a John WIMBERLY of Holly Springs. Bobby Mitchell told me that there was a Justice of the Peace named John WIMBERLY in Holly Springs, but he was married to someone else. It's possible the Elizabeth married his son, also named John WIMBERLY.
Elizabeth and William joined brothers Thomas Woodward and wife Sarah Caroline Barbee RAIFORD, Robert Andrew and wife Margaret Wyche RAIFORD, James M. and ? Black RAIFORD, and Malachi and Patience Wyche RAIFORD, all of whom were in Marshall Co. before the 1840 census was taken. Robert and Margaret built the house on their farm "The Hedge" which is now owned by John LOFTIN." (Raiford Pittman)
"Elizabeth Raiford who moved to Marshall County, MS in about 1840 with her brothers Robert, Thomas, a nd Malachi, was reported to have married one John Wimberly of Holly Springs, a name that a local historian is not familiar with. I found out over the weekend that Elizabeth actually married William Wooley and that they lived in Tate County. [NOTE: The 1833-35 settlement of the estate of Philip Ephraim Raiford, Elizabeth's father, paid John D. Wimberley "in right of his wife." This means that unless Elizabeth became a widow or divorcee after 1835 and remarried by 1840 to William Wooley, the Wooley line below is in error and are not descendants of Elizabeth Raiford. RLD] Tate County was carved out of Marshall, Tunica, and another county and lies to the west of the present day Marshall County. No history of the Wooley family is in the book, THE HERITAGE OF TATE COUNTY, MISSISSIPPI, a book published by the Tate County Historical and Genealogical Society, but Elizabeth is mentioned in the history of the Haley family of Senatobia. Her granddaughter, Elizabeth Hope Wooley married Isaiah Hatfield Haley (b. June 1821 in Mecklenberg Co., NC), son of Ansel Haley and Mary Hawkins High of Mecklenberg Co. Isaiah and Elizabeth had eight children. I can email them but it's a 700K JPEG file. The copier in the library was broken so I had to take a picture of the pages with a digital camera.
Basically, the piece says this about Elizabeth Raiford: "Isaiah Hatfield Haley...married Elizabeth Hope Wooley who was born October 29, 1825 to Robert Raiford Wooley and Martha Jane Crowder. Robert's mother was Elizabeth Raiford whose ancestors are traced back to Philip Raiford who came here from England by 1672 and to the Virginia branch of the Picketts."
Later in the piece the, Neymans are mentioned. I've been in contact with a Raiford-Neyman descendant in the past and I'm looking for his address now." (http://genforum.genealogy.com/raiford/messages/381.html)
In reply:
I'd like to know more about this "history of the Haley family of Senatobia" that you mention. I have a few corrections to offer on Isaiah Hatfield HALEY as follows:
Your source states: Isaiah Hatfield Haley (b. June 1821 in Mecklenberg Co., NC), son of Ansel Haley and Mary Hawkins
High of Mecklenberg Co."
Isaiah Hatfield HALEY would have been a grandson of Ansel HALEY and Mary Bethena Hawkins HIGH. Ansel HALEY was born c1760/1770. He can be found in Cumberland Co., NC in 1790 and 1800. Thereafter, the family is in Montgomery Co., NC. I know nothing about their being in Mecklenburg County.
Their son Alsey H. HALEY (or Alsobrook High HALEY), who married Gilly Ann ENGLISH and died in Arkabutla, DeSoto Co., MS, is the person normally cited as father of Isaiah H. HALEY. Alsey is in Knox Co., TN in 1850. He had a daughter Mary Ann (my ancestory) who married Tillman HAYWOOD in Montgomery Co., NC and they are on the Maury Co., TN census in 1850. Isaiah HALEY is in Marshall Co., MS in 1850 where other HALEYs (assumed relatives) lived.
By 1860, the HALEYs and HAYWOODs are in DeSoto Co. (now Tate?), MS where Alsey died.

Raiford Pitman continued in reply to another post:
Jennifer
Looks like we need to correspond. What part of the country was Robert Raiford from?
Here's what I know about Elizabeth Raiford. She was descended from Philip Raiford who came from Crediton, Devonshire, England prior to 1670. William Russell Raiford refers to him as The Immigrant in his book, THE HISTORY OF THE RAIFORD FAMILY. According to Bill, he arrived between 1666 and 1679. His best estimate is that he came to Isle of Wight County, VA in 1672, however, I've found a record of a land transfer in Patent Book Number 6 where Philip Wrayford is mentioned in a transfer from John Hardie of two tracts of land to various parties on 6 June 1666. It's not clear who got what but that's reportedly the spelling used by Philip. He was born in Crediton in 1649 and was accompanied to VA by his older sister Elizabeth.
Philip married Sarah Kinchen and they had a number of children. There's a lot of information on the children who are outside the line that I'm going to outline here. I'm trying to get you down to the Elizabeth Raiford of 1840 Marshall County, MS.
Philip and Sarah had a son named Philip, birth date unk. who married Martha ? He died in 1748 in Charleston after having first moved to NC with a brother, then selling his land and moving on.
Philip and Martha had a son named Philip (Getting boring isn't it?) who married Judith Weston and died in 1761 in Charleston.
Philip and Judith had a son named Philip Ephraim Raiford d. 1761 Fairfield Co., SC, wife unknown. They had nine children. Elizabeth Raiford was the ninth child. My ancestor, Robert Andrew, was their sixth child. He and Elizabeth were minors when Philip died and are so mentioned in his will.
Robert and Malachi Raiford, the eighth child, immigrated to Jefferson Davis Co., FL, date unknown. Since both were unmarried at the time, I doubt that Elizabeth was with them although she could have joined them after Robert got married to Margaret Bryan Wyche of Thomas Co., GA on 8 May 1834 (date is from some records that Henry Poole, a Wyche descendant, supplied to me). Malachi married Margaret's sister Patience a year later.
Now, here's where some speculation comes in. Brother Thomas (#5) traveled through GA where he married Sarah Caroline Barbee. William D. Raiford (#2) traveled off to parts unknown where he married Elizabeth Lark. James Raiford (#8) was with one or more of the bunch and so was Elizabeth (#9).
The reason that I mention these is the fact that all of them were in Marshall Co., MS for the 1840 census.
Elizabeth married William Wooley (source: TATE COUNTY HERITAGE, published by the Tate County Genealogical Society). Here is where I run into problems. There is mention of an Elizabeth Raiford Wooley whose granddaughter married Isaiah Hatfield Haley, b. NC 1821, who married Elizabeth Raiford Wooley's granddaughter, b. 1825 in Montgomery County.
The Elizabeth Raiford in my line cannot be the same one mentioned in the paragraph above because of the dates, but the family history says that she was a descendant of the same Philip Raiford and that he came to Isle of Wight County prior to 1672.
The Elizabeth Raiford in my line married after coming to Mississippi in 1840. She married William Wooley and they had a daughter named Laura. I have Laura marrying Dr. Isaac Busey from the same Tate County history. This Laura is the right age to have been the Elizabeth Raiford in line's daughter.
So far, I haven't been able to reconcile this but in the Haley family piece, there is mention of a Neyman family. I've been in touch in the past with a Neyman descendant who has a Raiford connection. I have very little on him although he was kind enough to send me the Neyman family tree in GEDCOM. I may have a key to unlocking that mystery now that I've found the Haley-Raiford-Neyman connection.
At the same time that my ancestors were in Marshall County, there were Raifords in eastern Tennessee who were outside of my immediate line, but I surmise came from Virginia or North Carolina and there were Raifords outside of my line in Alabama, and Pike County, Mississippi. From what I've learned, the Pike County Raifords were descendants of Philip Bud Raiford from North Carolina.
(http://genforum.genealogy.com/raiford/messages/456.html)

"Source for Elizabeth's marriage to Wooley is a book entitled THE HERITAGE OF TATE COUNTY, MISSISSIPPI published for the Tate Co. Genealogical Society. In the article I referenced, she mentions her lineage from Philip The Immigrant, although she didn't refer to him that way. She was obviously quite proud of her lineage since it was still in the Bucey family oral history in 1980 or so when the book was published."
...
"I have my line down through the present and Thomas W. and William D.'s lines down through the mid 1950s. I have some information from the Tate County, MS history on Elizabeth Raiford and William Wooley. Their daughter Laura married Dr. James L. Bucey. Laura and some other teens of Senatobia. MS's "leading families" scratched their names in the glass of a window in the Perkins House in Senatobia with the date of the party that they were attending there, July 16, 1887. Laura is said to have tipped he scales at around 500 pounds when she died."

General Notes: Husband - Isaac RAIFORD, RS-SC

Isaac RAIFORD is listed as a minor in the 1747 will of his father. For this to be true, Isaac would have been born after 1729. Isaac died in Columbia, South Carolina in 1815 , "nearly 100 years old".

Isaac served in the Revolution as a horseman and fought at Four Holes with Major LYELL. He was also Commissary General at Howell's Mill. [History of Richland County South Carolina by Green, p. 102] Stub Indents, Book O-Q, p. 245 lists: "No. 206 Liber Q Issued the 11th May 1785 to Mr. Isaac RAIFORD, for Twenty five Pounds, fourteen Shillings, & /3d¼ stlg. for 180 days Militia Duty, in 1781 & 1782. Vr. Account Audited. Principal £25,,14,,3¼ Annual Interest £1,,15,,11"

The 1790 Census of Richland County, South Carolina, lists Isaac RAIFORD with 3 females and 86 slaves in his household. Two of the females are daughters, Mary known by her marriage record to William C. KESTER, and Martha, named in her father's Will.

Isaac is mentioned in Historical Collections of the Joseph Habersham Chapter of the DAR Vol. I, p. 131, "Isaac was one of the richest men who ever lived in the South."

In 1806, Isaac RAIFORD and four of his Negro slaves , Gambo, Jacob , Dinah and Peggy became founding members of the Beulah Baptist Church in Richland County, a church that is still active today. [History of the Beulah Baptist Church by William Cox Allen 1962]

Isaac died before 18 October 1815 when his Will was proved. His will does not name a wife, but names grandchildren Elizabeth and Charles W. R. KESTER; grandchildren Isaac R. KIRKLAND Sarah Parker Tucker KIRKLAND; children of William M. SMITH by my grand daughter Patience; and daughter, Martha KIRKLAND.

The "Biographical Dictionary of South Carolina Legislators, p. 381, states that Moses KIRKLAND married Patience RAIFORD, daughter of Isaac RAIFORD. This conflicts with other data that states Patience was the sister of Isaac.

General Notes: Husband - John D. RAIFORD

John Daniel RAIFORD married Sarah "Sallie" WATSON, daughter of Elijah and Chloe Wimberly WATSON. She was born in 1810 from which it is estimated they were married circa 1828.

No children from this marriage are yet found; however, Larry & Elaine Blackman post on Rootsweb a daughter Caroline, no dates, who married a John McCARTY, no dates. In the 1860 census of Edgefield County, Saluda regiment,, South Carolina, there is a John McCARTY, 29, married to Martha, 27, no children.

NGS Quarterly Vol. 57 No. 2 June 1969 pgs. 105-108, Migrants From Edgefield County, SC 1842-1852 by Louise M Dumont tells us:
Among the loose papers in the Office of the Clerk of the Probate Court, Edgefield County, South Carolina, are 37 "powers of attorney" from heirs of citizens of Edgefield County whose estate had not yet been settled. These heirs had migrated south and west to six other states. Alabama had nearly half of them. The counties in each state have been arranged alphabetically. To save space, the phase "power of attorney" has been abbreviated to PA.
Mississippi: Thomas W., Robert, James & Malachi RAIFORD, Marshall Co., gave PA to their uncle William DANIEL, Edgefield Co., S.C. to collect their share from estate of JOHN C. RAIFORD, Edgefield Co., S.C. Mar 1846. (By email form Edgefield SC List, 1/13/2004, Census20@aol.com)

General Notes: Husband - Malachi RAIFORD

Malachi RAIFORD, Marshall County, and his brothers, Thomas W. and James RAIFORD gave power of attorney to their uncle, William DANIEL, Edgefield County, South Carolina to collect their share of the estate of their brother, John C. RAIFORD of Edgefield County, South Carolina in March 1846. Uncle William DANIEL was the brother of their mother, Elizabeth DANIEL.

The 1850 census of the Northern Division, Marshall County, Mississippi, dated 5 Nov 1850, Series: M432 Roll: 377 Page: 332, shows the family of Malachi and Patience Wyche RAIFORD. Malachi, a farmer is 35, Patience 30, Robert 5, Malachi, Jr. 3 and Susan 2. Their next door neighbor is Malachi's brother, Thomas RAIFORD and his wife, Sarah. Malachi was shot and killed in May 1851. Patience, his widow, remarried in 1852, to J. J. VICKERS.

On 15 January 2015, Ellen Samford provided:
The Evening Post, New York, NY, Thursday, May 29, 1851, Page 2:
"Malachi Rayford, a planter, has been shot dead at Caddo, La., by Henry Holmes, who alleges that the act was done in self-defence."
*****************************************************
From the Times - Picayune (New Orleans, Louisiana)
May 05, 1852, Page: 2
Henry L. Holmes, charged with the murder of Malachi Rayford, last year, has been tried at Shreveport and found guilty of murder, without capital punishment.
*****************************************************
The above Henry Holmes is listed with Malachi's brother, Robert as overseer in the 1850 U.S. Federal census for Marshall County, Mississippi. In the 1860 Census he is in Baton Rouge, LA, listed as H L Holmes in the penitentiary, serving time for murder.


General Notes: Wife - Patience WYCHE

"Patience WYCHE was born on 7 Aug 1820 in Montgomery County, GA. She was married to Malachi RAIFORD on 4 Jan 1836 in Thomas County, GA. William and Mary College Quarterly, Vol. XIV, No. 1, July 1905 lists marriage date as November 10, 1834. Other sources give other dates: The Automated Archives source, CD-3, lists the county as Terrell County, Georgia and the marriage date as January 4, 1836. "Georgia Bible Records", compiled by Jennette Holland Austin, published in 1985, pages 282 - 284, shows the Thomas C. Wyche Bible. Under the heading, "Sheets inserted in Bible" on page 283, is Malachi Rayford & Patience Wyche m. 11/10/1834.

Patience WYCHE and Malachi RAIFORD had the following children: Susan M. RAIFORD was born about 1843 in MS; Robert W. RAIFORD was born about 1845 in MS. R. W. and Malachi were twins; Malachi RAIFORD was born about 1845 in MS. Malachi and R. W. were twins.

Malachi Raiford died about 1850.

"Robert was born July 27, 1844 in Marshall Co., Ms. After the death of his father, his mother appears in the 1860 Hempstead Co., (Arkansas) Federal Census as the wife of J. J.Vickers. Robert is 15 yrs.old here." (Ellen Samford :fstexasrose@yahoo.com, email, 6.11.2005)

Patience later married James Jackson VICKERS on 21 Mar 1852. James Jackson VICKERS was born on 9 Sep 1806 in Wilkinson County, GA. He died on 22 Jun 1886 in LA or AR ?. Patience WYCHE and James Jackson VICKERS had the following children: Hardy VICKERS; Littleton Augustus VICKERS; William Williams VICKERS; Sarah Jane VICKERS." (Henry T. Poole III, 310 Summerhill Place, Warner Robins, GA 31088-7420 http://www.angelfire.com/ga/htpiii/w25gen.html)



Notes: Marriage

The Bible of Thomas C. WYCHE provides "Malachi RAYFORD and Patience WYCHE m. 11/10/1834."

An alternative wedding date: Malachi and Patience were married in Thomas Co., Ga, Jan. 1, 1836 (Source: Thomas Co., Ga. Marriages 1825-1925, by Joe E. Craigmiles III). (Ellen Samford :fstexasrose@yahoo.com, email, 6.11.2005)


General Notes: Child - Robert Wyche RAIFORD

"Robert was born July 27, 1844 in Marshall Co., Ms. After the death of his father, his mother appears in the 1860 Hempstead Co., (Arkansas) Federal Census as the wife of J. J. Vickers. Robert is 15 yrs. old here. On Sept. 30,1869 in Hempstead Co., Robert married Martha H. Stevenson ( B. July 18, 1845, in Hempstead Co., daughter of John W. Stevenson and Nancy Yates),(source of marriage - Hempstead County,Arkansas Marriage Records 1817 - 1875 , compiled by Bobbie Jones Mclane and Capitola Hensley Glazner, 1969). During the 1870's, Robert moved his family to Texas, where my great grandmother, Nancy Elizabeth Raiford was born in Ellis Co., Tx. on Feb.7, 1874, (She died in Shafter, Kern Co., Cal., May 12, 1945 at the age of 71)(source:California Death Certificate of Nancy). She married David Jefferson Greer, abt. Dec. 25, 1892, in Gonzales Co., Tx., (source: Gonzales Co.,Texas Marriage Licenses Issued 1829 - 1900, by Marjorie Burnett Parsons). David & Nancy are listed in the 1900 Census of Gonzales Co.,Tx. Dave died May 27, 1909. Nancy is listed, with her children, in the 1910 Census of Kent Co.,Tx. Robert and his family can be found in the 1880 census of Hamilton Co.,Tx., then Robert & Martha in the 1900 Census of Gonzales Co., Tx., and in the 1910 Census for Kent Co., Tx. Martha died Oct. 12, 1911, at 66 and Robert died Nov. 9, 1913 at the ripe old age of 69. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your wonderful web site. For a long time I went with the Thomas Daniel - Lanier line, but never really felt this was right. Now thanks to you, I think I finally have the right line. Thank you again." (Ellen Samford :fstexasrose@yahoo.com, email, 6.11.2005)

The 1850 census of Marshall County, Mississippi shows Robert is 5 and Malachi is 3. This contradicts an internet posting by Raiford Lee PITTMAN, on 13 Jun 2001, who writes "...there is record of twin boys, Robert and Malachi born to the couple in 1845."

"The Raiford name was passed down to Thomas Raiford WILSON, Sr. (called Raiford by the family). He married Georgia MONTGOMERY, who died in childbirth. He named the child Georgia Raiford, thinking that this would be his only child to whom he could ever pass down the name. But he did later re-marry Evelyn HARRIS and had two more children."

General Notes: Wife - Patience RAIFORD

Patience RAIFORD was born about 1681. "As for the third daughter listed in Philip RAIFORD's will, Patience - there appear to be no records extant of her life, her marriage or her death. Patience is said to have married Arthur WHITEHEAD (born 1715, died 1748), but no record has been located to substantiate that union. In addition, the disparity in their probable birthdates make such a union highly unlikely." (RAIFORD FAMILY by W. R. Raiford, 1989, page 48.) (NOTE FROM RAPH TERRY: W. R. Raiford on page 144 in RAIFORD FAMILY, does not explain why he shows Moses KIRKLAND as the probable husband of Patience Raiford.)
Did Patience marry. Joseph LANE, Jr.? 1728- Patience LANE gave to Matthew RAIFORD & Joseph LANE, her husband, Power of Attorney to land in Bertie Precinct, Edgecombe Co, NC (McBee, page110). 1733- The land was bought back by LANE.
She was married to Moses KIRKLAND.
She was married to Joseph LANE.

Raleigh, North Carolina: 1886 - 1890, Vol. 4, page 330.) Philip Raiford moved to North Carolina about 1700. In 1739, Philip was selling his lands in Edgecombe County, North Carolina, in preparation for his move to South Carolina, to establish the "South Carolina Raifords." It is not known why Philip chose to make this move, for South Carolina was still in the early stages of development, only slightly ahead of Georgia, which had been settled by Oglethorpe in 1733.

Philip and his wife Martha migrated to the fork of Congaree and Wateree Rivers and settled on the creek named for them, "Raiford Creek", now Mill Creek. They were among the very first settlers in Richland County. Philip II came soon after his father's death in North Carolina and on January 6, 1740 Certified 450 acres on Mill Creek below Bluff Road.

This is written about Philip's nephew William RAIFORD, Jr.: "The descendants of William, Jr. are legion, and for the majority of them in the succeeding three or four generations, their residences remained in either Isle or Wight or Southampton County throughout their lives. For this chief reason, the descendants of William, Jr. have always been referred to as the "Virginia Raifords;" whereas the descendants of William, Sr.'s brother, Matthew have become known as the "North Carolina Raifords," and the descendants of brother Philip, the "South Carolina Raifords."
Richland County, South Carolina, occupies a central position in the state. When the present county was first entered by settlers, it was a part of Craven County, North Carolina, and was occasionally referred to as St. Mark's Parish. Camden District was formed in 1768, embracing territory that was later divided into seven counties, one of which was Richland. (South Carolina Act of March 12, 1785.)
The first group of settlers in Richland County settled on Mill Creek below the Bluff Road. George HAIG, as deputy surveyor, certified a tract of land containing 450 acres on January 6, 1741, for Philip RAIFORD; and three days later, for the same person, a tract of 300 acres adjoining the first. According to Green in his book, A HISTORY OF RICHLAND COUNTY, on page 27, the creek that ran through Philip's property was called Raiford's Creek up until the American Revolution; afterwards it became known as Mill Creek, because William HAY had built a mill on it shortly before 1750.
John PEARSON migrated here shortly after Philip and married Philip's daughter, Mary RAIFORD. Their son, John PEARSON, Jr. born May 30, 1743, was possibly the first white child born within the limits of Richland County.

John PEARSON, Felix LONG, and Sarah, his (RAIFORD's) wife, executors."
Wills in Charleston - "Inventory of William RAIFORD was made by same men in April, 1762." This reference is to Joshua EDWARDS, David FARMER, and Victor NEELY who had inventoried the estate of his father, Philip, on September 4, 1761. 934


General Notes: Child - Lt. Philip RAIFORD III

Philip RAIFORD III was married to Judith Weston. The RAIFORDs were upcountry planters. All records were kept in Charleston until the 1770's so the fact that Philip IV's will was probated in Charleston does not mean that he lived there. He most likely died in Fairfield County, South Carolina.
Philip RAIFORD III was likely born about 1710 in North Carolina and came to Richland County, South Carolina with his father and mother. After his father died, he joined Fairchild's Rangers as a lieutenant. This was a "Home Guard" of local residents organized to defend the settlement against the Indians. In 1753, he completed his house, located on Bluff Road. It stood until 1903. One of the timbers removed from the house was carved: This house was built by Philip RAIFORD in 1753. (A Columbia Scrapbook, Bateman p14) "Lt., Capt. John Fairchild's Rangers, S. C., May, 1751." (A History of Richland County by Edwin L. Green. Columbia, South Carolina: 1932, page 27)" (RAIFORD FAMILY by W. R. Raiford, 1989, page 145)
On 18 Dec. 1742 Captain John Fairchild received a land grant on the East side of the Congaree River, bordered by John Pearson & Richard Jackson. In 1749 permission was granted to form a Company of Rangers to protect settlers from Indians, established in May 1751.

General Notes: Child - Mary RAIFORD

Mary RAIFORD was the daughter of Philip RAIFORD II and Martha WESTON. The RAIFORD family were supposed to have moved to Edgecombe County, North Carolina by 1710 and lived there until 1740. Mary RAIFORD is likely to have been born there.

Mary grew up in North Carolina and moved to Richland County with her parents in 1741. They had the first land in the county surveyed and were in the group of the first permanent settlers. Within about a year, she married another early settler, John PEARSON, an English mariner who was about 50 years old, if his birthday is correct. (He is old as he was a grown man when he was captured by the Spanish about 1725 but he might not be that old.)

They had five children born from 1743 to 1754. She outlived her husband by 29 years and is buried at her son's place in Fairfield District, "Bunker Hill". She is listed along with her son Philip PEARSON as providing supplies to Col. WASHINGTON and Col. MYDDLETON in June and August of 1781.

PEARSON, Mary is named in 1790 Census, Camden District, Fairfield County, South Carolina, page 20, as head of household with 2 males under 16, 3 females, and 4 slaves. [Series: M637 Roll: 11 Page: 157]

General Notes: Child - Isaac RAIFORD, RS-SC

Isaac RAIFORD is listed as a minor in the 1747 will of his father. For this to be true, Isaac would have been born after 1729. Isaac died in Columbia, South Carolina in 1815 , "nearly 100 years old".

Isaac served in the Revolution as a horseman and fought at Four Holes with Major LYELL. He was also Commissary General at Howell's Mill. [History of Richland County South Carolina by Green, p. 102] Stub Indents, Book O-Q, p. 245 lists: "No. 206 Liber Q Issued the 11th May 1785 to Mr. Isaac RAIFORD, for Twenty five Pounds, fourteen Shillings, & /3d¼ stlg. for 180 days Militia Duty, in 1781 & 1782. Vr. Account Audited. Principal £25,,14,,3¼ Annual Interest £1,,15,,11"

The 1790 Census of Richland County, South Carolina, lists Isaac RAIFORD with 3 females and 86 slaves in his household. Two of the females are daughters, Mary known by her marriage record to William C. KESTER, and Martha, named in her father's Will.

Isaac is mentioned in Historical Collections of the Joseph Habersham Chapter of the DAR Vol. I, p. 131, "Isaac was one of the richest men who ever lived in the South."

In 1806, Isaac RAIFORD and four of his Negro slaves , Gambo, Jacob , Dinah and Peggy became founding members of the Beulah Baptist Church in Richland County, a church that is still active today. [History of the Beulah Baptist Church by William Cox Allen 1962]

Isaac died before 18 October 1815 when his Will was proved. His will does not name a wife, but names grandchildren Elizabeth and Charles W. R. KESTER; grandchildren Isaac R. KIRKLAND Sarah Parker Tucker KIRKLAND; children of William M. SMITH by my grand daughter Patience; and daughter, Martha KIRKLAND. [SC Archives: S108093: South Carolina Will Transcripts (Microcopy No 9) RAIFORD, Isaac of Richland District, Will Typescript (MSS WILL: Book E, Page 330; Estate Packet: Box 25, Pkg 613)

The "Biographical Dictionary of South Carolina Legislators, p. 381, states that Moses KIRKLAND married Patience RAIFORD, daughter of Isaac RAIFORD. This conflicts with other data that states Patience was the sister of Isaac.


General Notes: Child - Martha RAIFORD

Martha RAIFORD married Jesse GOODWYN. She and Jesse had one child, Martha Epps GOODWYN.
Martha Raiford GOODWYN's will is in WILL Bk. TT 1774-1778 Pg. 268. "Abstracts of the Wills of South Carolina 1760-1784", compiled and edited by Caroline T.

I have siblings and children of Philip Raiford Kirkland and can help with Kirklands further back, but would like to more about Raifords. By the way, there was another Kirkland family in Rapides Parish, Louisiana that I'm sure is somehow related. The first land grant recipient in the late 1700s was Jesse Kirkland whose son Edward married Celeste Baillio in Rapides Parish. There was also a Col. William Kirkland who was a leader in the West Florida Rebellion in 1810 in Louisiana and almost certainly lived in East Feliciana Parish.

"NOTE: Desoto County is due west of Marshall County, Tate County is due south of Desoto County. Tate County was carved out of Marshall, Desoto, and Tunica County.
My great uncle, Philip (1837-1924) son of Robert A. Raiford of Edgefield Co., SC, and Margaret Bryan Wyche of Thomas Co., GA lived in Tate Co. until his death in 1924. He was married to Tommye Sales, 1842-1914. Philip and Tommye are buried in Como-Friendhip Cemetery outside of Como, Panola Co., MS. Buried with them are two of their three children, Mamie and Douglas. Mamie married a Fain, Douglas never married. Their oldest child, Fraiser, married Mary and according to my notes - from Raiford Payne - they had no children."

NOT THIS Phillip - P. N. Raiford, farmer was reported in the Memphis paper of the time as having married Tommie Sale. My great uncle Philip Raiford, who was born in Marshall Co., was married to Tommye Sales. He died in 1914 and they are buried in the Como Friendship Cemetery in Como, MS. IS COMO IN MADISON? (http://msgen.net/co/adj/tn/shelby/que/) In searching the Desoto records last week at the Tate Co GenSoc Library, I found "P. N. Raiford", "A. E. Raiford" and another Raiford. the two males, "P. N." and the other were said to have been born in TN, the female, "A. E." was said to have been born in NC. I looked P. N. up in the eBook by Chase Raiford and found that Philip N. Raiford, Nancy Raiford, and Robert B. Raiford left Johnston Co.., NC for Desoto Co., MS after the death of their father. raiford@panola.com

General Notes: Child - Cora Lea RAIFORD

Raiford PITTMAN lists the birth and death of his mother Cora Lea RAIFORD as 25 Jan 1914 and 12 May 1999, both in Panola County, Mississippi. Her age in the 1920 census supports that.

The Social Security Death Indax does not list Cora Lea PITTMAN as such. There is a "CORA V PITTMAN 20 Mar 1910 12 Mar 1999 (V) 64870 (Webb City, Jasper, MO ) 64755 (Jasper, Jasper, MO ) 491-01-2669 Missouri." No SSDI record matches her birth or 12 May 1999 date of death. This may be Raiford Pittman's mother.

General Notes: Husband - Robert Wyche RAIFORD

"Robert was born July 27, 1844 in Marshall Co., Ms. After the death of his father, his mother appears in the 1860 Hempstead Co., (Arkansas) Federal Census as the wife of J. J. Vickers. Robert is 15 yrs. old here. On Sept. 30,1869 in Hempstead Co., Robert married Martha H. Stevenson ( B. July 18, 1845, in Hempstead Co., daughter of John W. Stevenson and Nancy Yates),(source of marriage - Hempstead County,Arkansas Marriage Records 1817 - 1875 , compiled by Bobbie Jones Mclane and Capitola Hensley Glazner, 1969). During the 1870's, Robert moved his family to Texas, where my great grandmother, Nancy Elizabeth Raiford was born in Ellis Co., Tx. on Feb.7, 1874, (She died in Shafter, Kern Co., Cal., May 12, 1945 at the age of 71)(source:California Death Certificate of Nancy). She married David Jefferson Greer, abt. Dec. 25, 1892, in Gonzales Co., Tx., (source: Gonzales Co.,Texas Marriage Licenses Issued 1829 - 1900, by Marjorie Burnett Parsons). David & Nancy are listed in the 1900 Census of Gonzales Co.,Tx. Dave died May 27, 1909. Nancy is listed, with her children, in the 1910 Census of Kent Co.,Tx. Robert and his family can be found in the 1880 census of Hamilton Co.,Tx., then Robert & Martha in the 1900 Census of Gonzales Co., Tx., and in the 1910 Census for Kent Co., Tx. Martha died Oct. 12, 1911, at 66 and Robert died Nov. 9, 1913 at the ripe old age of 69. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your wonderful web site. For a long time I went with the Thomas Daniel - Lanier line, but never really felt this was right. Now thanks to you, I think I finally have the right line. Thank you again." (Ellen Samford :fstexasrose@yahoo.com, email, 6.11.2005)

The 1850 census of Marshall County, Mississippi shows Robert is 5 and Malachi is 3. This contradicts an internet posting by Raiford Lee PITTMAN, on 13 Jun 2001, who writes "...there is record of twin boys, Robert and Malachi born to the couple in 1845."

General Notes: Husband - Cadwallader RAINES


1840 U.S. Census, Georgia, Baldwin County, Milledgeville, 318 Militia District; Series: M704 Roll: 37 Page: 50: Line 10 Cadwallader RAINES Males 2 - - - - 1 (2 under 5, one 30-40)|| Females - 3 - - 1 (three 5-10, one 20-30).

"The next lot below is of Mr. and Mrs. Cadwell W. RAINES. Mr. RAINES came to Macon from Baldwin County, Georgia, where he always had spelled his name Cadwallader, but he used the shorter CADWELL when he moved to Bibb County and all deeds, business papers and so forth were signed in this manner. Strangely enough his last name is spelled RAINES, but you will see on his monument it is simply RAINS. His monument, incidently, is a beautiful example of the funerary art of the period and it is too bad that vandals saw fit to remove the head from this beautiful piece of statuary." (http://www.rosehillcemetery.org/rambles/048.htm)
"A finer monument to Cadwell W. RAINES in his residence still standing on the corner of Georgia Avenue and College Street. The beautiful white frame home in the shape of a modified Maltese cross is now owned by Mr. and Mrs. Lee P. OLIVER, Jr. This house has the distinction of having been designated a National Landmark by the Secretary of the Interior a few years ago which is a great compliment to its builder. There are relatively few properties listed as national landmarks in the country and Macon has two of them, this house and the Johnston-Hay House. Mr. RAINES' house is unique and beautiful both outside and in. Its staircase rising from the main level to the cupola on the third floor is one of the chief charms of the house. There is a file on this house at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. I unearthed some interesting data recently at the Courthouse on the Raines family. Mr. RAINES died in early 1856. The petition to probate his will is dated February 4, 1856. Not only was he a very wealthy landowner, a man of considerable property, but his wife, Parthenia Thurmond RAINES, was the daughter of Phillip THURMOND, a prominent landowner and a man of position in the State, so she was wealthy in her own right as well as inheriting her husband's property. This was early 1856 and on November 18, 1856, I found the marriage license for Parthenia RAINES to Mr. Samuel P. CORBIN and at the same time a rather voluminous marriage contract between the two, and the third party, Mr. Henry J. LAMAR who was a nephew of Parthenia Thurmond RAINES, his mother being her sister. The document, as I said, is very lengthy and sets forth that all of Parthenia RAINES' property consisting of-and then it goes into great detail to describe, not only the lands and the real property (the home), but furniture and stables and carriages and wagons, and then I would think about fifty or sixty slaves, each one of the slaves is described in some way, naming them and giving usually the age of each one of them. The document sets forth that Mr. CORBIN is to have no part of anything belonging to Parthenia RAINES; the described property shall remain in her name, and no part of the property would be used to settle any debts and so forth of Mr. CORBIN. Henry J. LAMAR is named as the trustee to see that this document is properly carried out and it also goes on to say that at the death of Parthenia Raines that the entire estate would go to children of Parthenia Raines' brothers and sisters. In an addition to the marriage contract, Parthenia RAINES states that if the said Samuel P. CORBIN dies within twelve months from this date that she relinquishes all claims that she may have in and to the estate of Samuel P. CORBIN, as his heir except such portion as he may choose to leave her by his will and testament. Only two years later in November 1858, Mr. CORBIN is seeking a divorce from his wife and then much later Parthenia was declared legally insane by her nephew. Henry J. LAMAR and other members of her family and finally the final divorcement precedings were entered on the record. Parthenia died in 1868, the end of a very tragic life. I find these marriage contracts very interesting and I have run into more than one similar to this one." (http://www.rosehillcemetery.org/rambles/049.htm)
