John Lavador & Elizabeth (Haddock) Ledford's descendants
Lucy Ledford: Lucy was born September 09, 1889 and she died August 20, 1952
at Milledgeville, Baldwin County, GA. She was married to Harry Monroe Howard on
April 24, 1904 at Dalton, Whitfield Co., GA. She married Albert V. Toney, Sr. on
September 08, 1915. Lucy was a railroad widow and had a freepass to
anywhere, anytime. This was one of the main reasons why she did so much work on
the family tree in the 1930s and 1940s. Lucy fell and broke her hip and was not
found for 4 or 5 days. She never really recovered. Ref: From the family research
files of Jacquelyn Sue (Lochridge) DeFoor.
Lucy Ledford Howard Toney was working on family history long before most people thought of such things. She was a "railroad widow" and had a railroad pass, she could go anywhere and she went everywhere. When she died her son Ralph Howard had the bulk of her work. What happened to it after his death is unknown. From the family research files of Jacquelyn Sue (Lochridge) DeFoor.
David Crenshaw Haddock, Sr. & wife Lydia Longley [Langley?]
David Crenshaw Haddock arrived with his family in Georgia in the 1840's, residing first in Catoosa Co. then on to Whitfield Co, residing in Hamilton Co., TN, and Alabama for periods in between his Georgia stays. David was married to Elizabeth Ault about 1828, in TN, with whom he had nine children. It is believed that Elizabeth died in childbirth, as her death date is the same as the birth date of her daughter, Elizabeth.
David married a second time to Selena Bayliss and produced a son named Horace, born abt 1851. His wife died soon after childbirth and the maternal grandparents raised the little boy that was named Horace. He is located in the Federal Population Schedules, US Census records by the name of Horace Bayliss.
David's next marriage was to Lydia Longley/Langley. They had seven children, the first four were born in Hamilton Co., TN, and the last three born in Whitfield Co., GA. [Ref: From the files of Judy Haddock Swan]

John Lewis Lochridge was a Fireman on a work train. On June 19, 1924 a switchman made a fatal error and turned a passenger train from Atlanta head on into the work train. John jumped clear with his railroad watch in his hand, when the trains hit, his engine crushed him to death. Josie was on the passenger train. The indentions from John’s fingers stayed in the watchcase, which his son Earl carried for many years. In the 1960’s Earl took the watch to be cleaned and the watch repairman thinking to do him a favor took the dents out of the case. Lucky for him the dents came right back! The watch is now owned by John L. Lochridge’s Great Grandson John Patrick Austin O’Daniel of Calhoun, GA. Ref: From the family research files of Jacquelyn Sue (Lochridge) DeFoor.
