James H "Big Jim" Barfield
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Aug. 14, 1858
Georgia, USA
Death: Mar. 26, 1951
Red Rock (Worth County)
Worth County
Georgia, USA

Jim's children were John Clayton, Jasper, Livingston, Dave, Leila, Arthur Heywood, Lola, Annie Mae, Oris L. and Otis H Barfield.
There may have been 1 child who died as an infant.

According to Worth County marriages, James and Annie were married on 2-26-1880.

1870 US Census Worth County shows:

Solomon Barfield 60
Elvina Barfield 55
Samantha Barfield 30
Rhoda Barfield 24
Sarah Barfield 18
James Barfield 11

I don't know why James H. doesn't appear on the 1860 US Census Worth as he was between 1 and 2 years old.

James and Anna and family as listed in the Worth US Census of 1900:

James H Burfield 40
Kirane Anna Burfield 25
J Clayton Burfield 20
Jasper Burfield 14
Linig??In Burfield 11
Dan T Burfield 10
Lelia Burfield 8
Haywood Burfield 11
Lola Burfield 3
Infant Burfield 2/12

The 3rd child is obviously Livingston Barfield.

Some of the mistakes on the census records are the following: 1880 Census has mother's birthplace (Elvina Powell Barfield) as S.C. and not N.C. as some researchers say.
1900 Census says Jim is 40 but we know he wasn't. Says his mom was born in Virginia and his dad born in Georgia. We know these are not true. Also, this Census has age difference for Jim and Anna as 15 years (40 vs. 25) but the 1880 Census has Anna as being 16 yrs old and Jim as being 21 yrs old.
