Chester & Lillian Barfield - PA Descendants

Hello Afrigeneas Family,

I am in search of descendants of Chester and Lillian Barfield. Chester Barfield is my great-great grandmother, Margaret Barfield Brown's brother. Chesters's parents were Sampson and Helen Barfield. Chester was born about 1984. SSDI says that he was born 1897.

I have found Chester in the 1900 census (with parents), 1910, 1920 and 1930 census. In 1900-1920 he was in Robeson County and by 1930 he moved to Allegheny County, Duquesne township. In the 1930 census, he is 36 years old, his wife is Lillian age 27. There are no children. Living with them is Chester's brother, Jasper age 40 and Lillian's father, age 64, who is a widow. His last name is not clear, but looks like Nelson Daviston?? Lillian was born in GA and so was her mother and father.

Chester died in September, 1970 in Allegheny county in Duquesne. I do not know if Chester and Lillian had children after the 1930 census. So, I am in search of any descendants of Chester and Lillian who may have remained in Pennsylvania or moved on to other states.

I am ordering a death certificate for Chester to see if it contains any additional information. I've gathered quite a bit of information on Chester's Barfield family in Robeson County, NC. I even have obtained a photo of his sister, Margaret (my great great grandmother).

If anyone is researching Barfields from PA, I would love to hear from you.

Pray for peace and love,
