Byrd Stanaford
By Velma Pemberton Decker (2006)


    Byrd Stanford had a lot of property just below the school and just before you reached Bon coming from Williamsburg. He had a small store on the pike just before you turned off to go to Bon. He had convenient things that would save a trip to Williamsburg if the commissary wasn’t open. I think he had a gas pump too. He didn’t work in the mines but two of his sons did.

    His children were: Otis, Curtis, Francis, and Whitney. Francis married Gladys Hinkle. Curtis and his wife Lula Belle had two daughters: Louise and Bea. Whitney, Bea, and Louise and I were good friends.

    Byrd’s store was on a very small hillside right on the edge of the road and the back of the store set on posts because it was a steep slope and the railroad was at the bottom of the slope. The guys used to play cards underneath the store. When they were walking home from town, they would always stop there to rest before going across the trestle.
