2. Addison Monroe Wakefield,1,2 son of Henry L. Wakefield and Eliza Jane Kirby, was born on August 12, 1858 in Difficult, Smith County. Tennessee, died on November 27, 1947 in Mangum , Greer County, Oklahoma, at age 89,3 and was buried on December 2, 1947 in Lone Wolf, Kiowa County, Cemetery.4 The cause of his death was died from Throat Cancer.5

General Notes: There is some question as to the name of Addison Monroe Wakefield,

According to Harry M. Cleveland who has did a lot of research on the Wakefields has his name as Monroe Addison Wakefield, he is also listed in the 1860 Smith County, Tennessee census as Munroe, and he is listed as Adason M. Austin in the 1870 Census, This should read Addison M. Austin.

As we remember my father saying that they had recorded his name wrong at birth, he used the name of Addison M. Wakefield and all the documentation we have is listed as Addison M. Wakefield he also signed his name as A.M. Wakefield, and that is how we knew him. Since we can't prove or disaprove it we are going with A.M. Wakefield.

Addison Monroe Wakefield Passed away at the home of his daughter Ruby Dee Smith in Mangum, Greer County, Oklahoma.

General Notes: All of Henry's daughters were said to have "Scriptural" names.

Henry Wakefield served in the North Carolina Militia during the Revolutionary War. There were eight children by his first marriage and eleven children by his second marriage.

Henry Wakefield was in the 1840 Census of Pensioners or Military Service

Henry Wakefield (spelled Weakfield) on some early records) was born May 1752 in Albemarle co, Virginia, a son of Charles and Elizabeth (Moore) Wakefield. He moved to Burke County North Carolina at an early age and enlisted in Captain William Penlan's Troop in September 1775. He was stationed for two month's at "Cathey's Fort." He then marched across the Blue Ridge Mountains against the Cherokee Indians and while with a hunting party shot one of them but while reloading his gun, received a shot in the back from another Indian and was left as dead by others in his company. He evidently was recovered fully because his pension record says he next enlisted in Captain Thomas Kennedy's Troop of Light Horse and served on short tours. He then enlisted in Captain John Russel's Company, Colonel Joseph McDowell's Regiment and served about 5 months, during which he received a slight wound in his mouth. For all this service he was given credit for one years service on the pension record.
Henry Wakefield was first married to Elizabeth Alexander, daughter of William and Elizabeth Alexander on March 20, 1778, place and date of her death are not known. Henry Wakefield then married Mary, on October 25, 1791 in Burke Co., North Carolina. She was born January 23, 1773. the place of her birth is not known and there is not actual proof of her maiden name but on her application for pension after her husband's death she states that James Simpson, age 82, residing in White Co., Tennessee is a "Near relation." Henry Wakefield died November 13, 1850 in Macon Co., Tennessee, the date of his wife Mary's death is not known. Since Macon Co., Tennessee was from Smith County in 1842, it is thought that Henry had not moved the county had just changed. The above information was from the Revolutionary War Pension record of Henry and Mary Wakefield.
