re: Cordelia Spafford
Ahh.. So in your opinion, I WAS mistaken to link Cordelia Spafford, daughter of Orleans Spafford, with Gamaliel Barstow Williams. Too bad that has been placed out on the internet in several places. I'm also glad I did more investigating and discovered someone else's work that told me Cordelia Spafford, wife of Gamaliel Barstow Williams, was the daughter of Lorenzo Spafford. No doubt there is likely a common ancestor with the Spaffords.

I do see your Cordelia (wife of Samuel Warren) living in dwelling 92 of the 1850 Census at Wapello, Louisa, Iowa right next to dwelling 91 where lives the family of Thomas Stoddard who married Amelia Williams. Amelia and Gamaliel are siblings.

I see your record published to wc.rootsweb, updated in 2013. I will have to re-evaluate it. I have been unable to find Samuel and Cordelia in Iowa or Wisconsin after the 1850 census. Perhaps misspelled search terms. Anyhow, it seems likely to me that Orleans and Lorenzo Spafford were brothers, and our two Cordelia's were cousins. At least that is what makes some sense to me.

Cordelia Spafford Williams
I have become convinced that Cordelia Spafford, wife of Gamaliel Barstow Williams, is NOT the daughter of Orleans Spafford buried at Long Creek Cemetery, Louisa Co, Iowa. I have changed her parents to Lorenzo D. Spafford and Almira Clark Taggart Spafford of Eulalia, Potter, PA. I thought that with your interest in the Spaffords, you would like to know. Lorenzo and Almira are findagrave #s 96227006 and 96227103 respectively.

I hope this information is of use to you.
