CRANFORD, MOFFFET posted by Sue Thompson on Saturday, October 24, 1998

I am searching for the ancestors of my g-grandfather, Thomas Franklin CRANFORD. We know he was born in Arkansas. However, his father died when he was two, his mother when he was nine. His grandfather Cranford's wife sent him to live with her brother, H. L. MOFFFET, in Austin when he was twelve. After his father died, his mother remarried and had a daughter before she died. Thomas' father supposedly owned a sawmill close to the Arkansas River. Thomas never talked of his family in Arkansas and we have no information on them.
