Mollie Buford

About 1849 - 1890
Frank Burford (son); Husband’s name unknown (predeceased her);
Parents both born in Tennessee, names unknown
1880 – Listed in the US Census as the Cheatham’s housekeeper, living at Belmont with her one-year old son, Frank Burford. Oddly the Census lists her son as the cook, a notation that was likely meant either for his mother Mollie or for Agnes Sittell (Black), who appeared on the census line immediately under Frank, also living and working at Belmont.

1890 – May 7 – Mollie died at the age of 40 of heart disease [Daily American, May 11, 1890, Death Certificate # 279]. At the time, she lived at 323 Russel Street in Edgefield and was a widow. She was buried at Pest House, also known as Rest Home Cemetery.
