F574: John Bradley LeForce
Born in TN on 12/28/1839, John Bradley LeForce was the son of Ranney LeForce, a second generation Frenchman. He married Amanda Rachel Blankenship, who was born in Cumberland Gap, KY, on 12/6/1841. She was the daughter of Elijah Blankenship of Cumberland Gap (I think this is an error).
Their children are as follows: James Andrew, 1859 (married Fannie Keys); Mollie, 1862 (married Charles A. Banzet of Labette County, KS); John Samuel, 1864 (married Sallie Keys); Viola, 1866 (married Nelson Beecher Chamberlin of Pheasant Hill); Erastus Elijah, 1870; Clara May, 1877 (married Russell Hunt); Clarence William, 1879 (married Emma Grace Chamberlin of Centralia).
John B. LeForce moved his family to Mitchell, Indiana at the beginning of the Civil War. He joined the Union Army & served in Wilder's Brigade for three & one half years. Leaving Indiana at the end of the war, he & his family spent some ten years at West Plains, MO. He was joined by his father, Ranney, who spent his remaining years there.
In the 1880's he moved his family to the Cherokee Nation where he engaged in the cattle business. Mr. LeForce died in Vinita on 4/3/1911, & Mrs. LeForce died here on 2/6/1916. They are both buried in Fairview Cemetery north of Vinita.
