The 1930 Federal Census for Richmond (Chesterfield Co.), Virginia, District 73 records Marvel M. Redford (25) married for 6 years to Thomas E. Redford (27). They have 2 children: Mary A. (4 11/12) and Thomas J. (3 11/12). In looking for Marvel, the 1930 census also lists a possible parent of Thomas E. Redford to be Lilly Redford: Lilly M. Redford (54 - widow) with son-in-law Peter W. Reed (43) with his wife Vera E. (31 - daughter) ... also in the household are Mabel C. Redford (20 - daughter) and grandchildren James R. (10) and Marvel (8) Blakey. The 1910 census shows Lillie (34) married to James (39) Redford with children Carlton (18), Vera (11), and Edward (8) living in Manchester, Chesterfield Co., VA. Also in the household is mother-in-law Coarline Caurnew (or Caroline Cournow as in the 1900 census) (66 - England / widow). Thus ... Thomas E. Redford is possibly Thomas Edward Redford. Note: An 1889-1890 Richmond City Directory records Caroline Cournow, widow of Thomas.
This individual's married name is from an obituary ... see general notes on her sister, Frances Waller Palmore.
