Barfield - Lodger (age 45). Living with Sidney Hill and family. Listed as Married.
Industry is Log Woods.
Home: Township 3, Craven, North Carolina
- Per conversation with Hazel on 2/13 - Barfield had a brother named Richard and a brother named Barry (sp?).
- Per conversation with Clyde 4/26/06 - Barfield had three sisters - Agnes and two sisters that were younger than he.
- Per conversation with Mary on 9/21/06 - Barfield was a short man.
- Son Cleo's death certificate has his name as William B. Koonce
- birth date as written in 1900 census.
- Birth date is 1884 on tombstone.
- Death certificate has January 10, 1895 as birthday, but this conflicts with infor from 1900 census. As there is no other Barfield Koonce in the 1900 census and I know from Aunt Hazel that Barfield had a brother named Barry (sp?) I believe the Barfield I have for 1900 is indeed him - so birthday would be around 1886. Need to research further.
- Accident occured on April 6th.
