The Gawfs that I research were from that Big Creek Township in Sharp County.
1880 Sharp Co., Arkansas census in the Big Creek Township:
166A 4 218 219 Gawf William G W M 30 Married
Farmer 12 TN TN TN
166A 5 218 219 Gawf Milly A W F 32 Wife
. Married . . Keepinghouse 12 . .
. . . . . X . TN TN TN
166A 6 218 219 Gawf George W W M 5 . Son
Single . . . . . . .

166A 7 218 219 Gawf Mary T W F 1 . Dau
Single . . . . . . .

166A 8 218 219 Fortune James W M 15 .
Orphan Single . . . Farming . .
Note from my file: Per Geri Blankenship Nolen, William Gawf was a full
blood and Milly was White.
A daughter of the above couple; Martha Jane Gawf (1883-1987) was married to
a brother of my grandmother's. His name was Robert Jefferson "Jeff"
Blankinship (1882-1950). Martha Jane and Jeff divorced after having five
children together. I have seen a picture of Jeff - but not of Martha Jane;
who by the way lived to be 104 years of age, I am told. Their daughter;
Nancy Jane still lives in Cave Springs. Isn't that the name of that town in
Sharp Co.? Nice lady........
Wonder how your Gawfs and these connect?
