The 1920 census lists this family - O.N. Mayfield, Blanche Mayfield, a niece Myrtle, their son Paul, (my dad - Raymond (Earnest Raymond Neil) Mayfield, their daughter Bertha and 2 nephews - I believe Vernon and Lindel. O.N. is Otha or Otho Nimrod Mayfield, born March 6, 1881 and Haley or Hallie Blanche was born Aug 21, 1881. Both were born in West Virginia but Lived on Washington in Bridgeport, Illinois. Grandpa passed away in the 1960's and Grandma in the 70,s. My dad Raymond was in the military and retired in the late 70's. He later moved to Missouri where he passed away Oct. 26, 1980. He married Elnora Jeannette Bridegroom on November 13, 1940 and had 9 children. I am in the direct middle of all 9. I have a brother Charles who was born in the house on Washington. I would love to find out anything about my Grandparents. I also know that O.N. worked for Standard Oil of Ohio as a driller for many years. I was sent a picture of my Grandparents holding my older brother Bill (William Raymond) Mayfield who passed away recently. He lived and worked in California so we didn't receive much information from him. Attached is a picture of Grandparents with my Brother Bill. Submitted by Nelda Huffman.
