England or Ireland? I'd like to know...

Journal by Komadori

Hey, there! :)

So, the Stafford line I'm from is through Texas and from Oklahoma, so far as I know. Past that, I'm not sure. I can ask other members of my family, but I am hoping some other Staffords from OK can help me out.

I'm Robin, my father was Jerry Lee. He has a brother, Charles, who is still living and in Houston, so far as I'm aware. Their father, William Lee, lived in Vinita(?) Oklahoma, until moving to Texas with his wife, Bessy Laureen Stafford(nee)Warren. His mother's name was Leigh, but I don't know her maiden name, and I don't know my great-grandfather's name, either.

I seem to recall my uncle doing a bit of research and finding our line from Staffordshire, England, but I don't know how in depth his research went, and whether or not the line went through Ireland before coming to the States, or going here directly. I would love to know the history.
