By Jack Dotson - Sep 3, 2000
George was born in Russell County, VA about 1816.
His birth parents are identified as:
father: John Sr. /Wolford/
mother: Mary "Polly" /Charles/
You are correct that Abigail's marriage to Joshua Deel lists her as
the d/o Stephen C. I have Abigail's marriage to William "Wiley"
O'Quinn listed as 1 October 1857; however it is not listed in the
Buchanan Co VA or Pike Co KY marriage books.
From the book: "Marriages Buchanan Co VA", there are 6 marriages
listed for Abigail's children, two of these listed were for the same
marriage for her d. Mary; however in one she was listed as Nancy:

Woolford - L. Martha Baker 19 s Rus Co VA, d/o Elijah & Sary Baker
pg. 13 11 Jul 1867 G. Preston Stiltner 19 s Buc Co VA, s/o Chris &
Mary - Nancy J. Wolford 21 s Buc Co VA, s/o George & Abigail
pg. 14 11 Jul 1868 J. P. Stiltner 19 s Buc Co VA, s/o C. & Mary - Mary
J. Wolford 21 s Buc Co VA, s/o Abigail
pg. 19 6 Jan 1876 James Crisenbery 19 s Yancy NC, s/o James L. & J. -
Matilda Coleman 22 s Buc Co VA, s/o Abigal
pg. 24 21 Jul 1877 J. H. Presley 25 s Buc Co VA, s/o William & Sarah -
Sarah O'quinn 19 s Buc Co VA, s/o Wiley & A.
pg. 34 19 Aug 1880 George W. Wolford 35 wd Pike Co KY, s/o Geo. & Abby
- J. Stiltner 23 wd VA d/o John & Emaline
I think the Matilda Coleman who m. James Crisenbery (Quesinberry?) in
1876, was the same Matilda who was listed in the 1860 Census with
Wiley O'Quinn & Abigail. The fact that she used Abigail's maiden name
seems to indicate that Abigail was not married when Matilda was born.
I wasn't able to find a James Crisenberry or Quesinberry in the 1880
Census; however did find a James Alford in Roane Co WV with a wife,
Matilda and her mother Abigil Coleman was listed with them. I think
this is the same Abigail with her d. Matilda:
