What can anyone tell me about the BARFIELDS, the family into which a GRADY married: William GRADY m. An BARFIELD, dtr. of Richard BARFIELD? The name which is spelled GRADY is pronounced as if it were spelled GRADDY in the area where I was born and grew up -- Lenoir County, NC. I never heard the long "a" sound until we moved to Richmond, Va., and a teacher pronounced it that way. Why would it be pronounced with the short "a" in Lenoir, Duplin, and environs? A monument to John GRADY in Duplin County has his birth date as 1703. I have a photograph of the monument and would be happy to send a copy to anyone who would desire it. No charge.
