DAFFORD, WILLIAM GREEN - Clark County, Arkansas | WILLIAM GREEN DAFFORD - Arkansas Gravestone Photos

William Green DAFFORD

Thompson Chapel Cemetery
Clark County,
Arkansas

The stone is engraved with dates 1854-1902 for Billie. His full name was William Green Dafford. His birthdate is uncertain, but the 1860 Federal census of Hamilton County, Tennessee gives his age as 8 and his birthplace as Illinois. His father's name was Joel Daffron (note change in spelling--it is Dauphin on the 1860 census, but Civil War records confirm the Daffron spelling). He was likely the son of Joel's first wife Mary, but that has not been proved. He died 17 March 1902. Jane, whose dates engraved on the stone are 1855-1914, was officially Minervia Jane Elizabeth (Runyan) Dafford. She was born 1 September 1855 in Talladega County, Alabama, and died 30 November 1914. Her parents were Jefferson Wesley Runyan and his wife Minervia Hillsman (Houston) Runyan.
