I have very little information on Morning Tabitha Bruer. She is the wife of Wyatt Lankford and the mother of my g-g-grandmother, Leaty (Lankford) West. She was enumerated as “Tobitha Lankford” on the 1850 census in Polk County, Tennessee. She was enumerated as “Morning T. Lankford” on the 1880 census in Murray County, Georgia. The only evidence I have for her surname is various online family trees.
Both census records report her birthplace as North Carolina, in either 1810 or 1819. The 1880 census reports her father’s birthplace as North Carolina and her mother’s as Virginia.
If you have any information on Morning Tabitha’s family, please leave a comment. Any help would be appreciated!
