Staffords in East Tennessee

Query by Michelle1975

I would like to search past my great-grandfather ALVA STAFFORD. He married LELIA WINEGAR and I was told he was from Hancock Co, TN, possibly Sneedville. He had several children with Lelia including my grandfather, GAINES W. STAFFORD. They were raised in Hawkins Co. My grandfather lived in Kingsport, Tn until his death in March 2011. GAINES was married to BONNIE O'DELL SIMPSON. She passed away in September 1998. (Photo is of my Papaw Gaines)
