      I have a question about S. E. Alford #1517 and his family.
      The page shows 6 children.
      Lizzie #1519 b. about 1860
      Francis #1520 b. about 1864
      John H. #1521 b. about 1868
      George C. #1522 b. Apr 1870
      Julius #1524 b. about 1871
      Walter #1523 b. about 1873

      When I went to Greene County, Mississippi and Citronelle, Alabama, I was able to interview many of the Alfords that still live in that area. Many, many Alfords down there!!!!

      My research shows that Ephraim D. Alford b. 1827 had the following children with his first wife, Fannie d. 30 June 1878.
      1. E. D. Alford b. 13 Dec 1857
      2. Francis Alford b. 1864
      3. John Henry Alford b. 18 Apr 1867
      4. George Alford b. 1870
      5. W. Allen Alford b. 1871
      6. Julius Alford b. 1873

      Ephraim got around quite a bit. He was married to Fannie and had Frances as the housekeeper. I have pages and pages of his descendants.

      My grandfather was born Elbert Robert #905 was born 26 June 1897. His father, Ephraim D. married Frances 2 August 1897. None of my 'kinfolks' in south Mississippi and Alabama could believe that "Granny" wasn't married to Ephraim when she gave birth to:
      1. Lela b. 23 Mar 1881
      2. Everett Lee b. 12 Oct 1886
      3. Rufus b. 1893
      4. Elbert Robert
      I actually had to show many of them the birth certificate for Elbert and the marriage license for Ephraim to convince them.

      I am not sure where the whole thing started but, just my luck, I get the most confusing one in the bunch.

      It's a mystery for sure.

            JDwindspirit,
             
            You could contact her direct.  Her email address is there.  Her husband is a descendant of Peachman Alford. 
             
            My name is Janice Smith.  I am also interested in the line from Peachman, although I am not a descendant of that line.  Would you be willing to send me your email address?  Maybe you know enough of the descendants in Mississippi that you could solve some problems and questions that I have had about the families in this line.  You did at least provide some answers in the note that you sent.
             
            I would like to ask the question:  Do you agree that Ephraim D. and S. E. are the same person?
             
            My email address is:  janiceandjohnsmith@...

E. Alford #1517 and his family. <br>
                The page shows 6 children. <br>
                Lizzie #1519 b. about 1860<br>
                Francis #1520 b. about 1864 <br>
                John H. #1521 b. about 1868<br>
                George C. #1522 b. Apr 1870 <br>
                Julius #1524 b. about 1871 <br>
                Walter #1523 b. about 1873 <br><br>
                When I went to Greene County, Mississippi and Citronelle, Alabama, I was able to interview many of the Alfords that still live in that area. Many, many Alfords down there!!!!<br><br>
                My research shows that Ephraim D. Alford b. 1827 had the following children with his first wife, Fannie d. 30 June 1878.<br>
                1. E. D. Alford b. 13 Dec 1857<br>
                2. Francis Alford b. 1864<br>
                3. John Henry Alford b. 18 Apr 1867<br>
                4. George Alford b. 1870<br>
                5. W. Allen Alford b. 1871<br>
                6. Julius Alford b. 1873<br><br>
                Ephraim got around quite a bit. He was married to Fannie and had Frances as the housekeeper. I have pages and pages of his descendants. <br><br>
                My grandfather was born Elbert Robert #905 was born 26 June 1897. His father, Ephraim D. married Frances 2 August 1897. None of my 'kinfolks' in south Mississippi and Alabama could believe that "Granny" wasn't married to Ephraim when she gave birth to: <br>
                1. Lela b. 23 Mar 1881<br>
                2. Everett Lee b. 12 Oct 1886<br>
                3. Rufus b. 1893<br>
                4. Elbert Robert<br>
                I actually had to show many of them the birth certificate for Elbert and the marriage license for Ephraim to convince them. <br><br>
                I am not sure where the whole thing started but, just my luck, I get the most confusing one in the bunch.<br><br>
                It's a mystery for sure. <br><br></p></div><!--~-|**|PrettyHtmlStart|**|-~--><div style="color: #fff; height: 0;"></div><!--~-|**|PrettyHtmlEnd|**|-~--></body><!--~-|**|PrettyHtmlStart|**|-~--><head><style><!--

                  Hi,

                  What ya'll keep swapping back and fourth here that some folks cannot read is html coding.  Someone did most of this to be viewed with an Internet browser, but someone else modified the original work or added introductory remarks thus contaminating the html file.

                  I'm sorry but I just do not have the time to clean it up.

                  Gil Alford

E. Alford #1517 and his family. <br>
                    The page shows 6 children. <br>
                    Lizzie #1519 b. about 1860<br>
                    Francis #1520 b. about 1864 <br>
                    John H. #1521 b. about 1868<br>
                    George C. #1522 b. Apr 1870 <br>
                    Julius #1524 b. about 1871 <br>
                    Walter #1523 b. about 1873 <br><br>
                    When I went to Greene County, Mississippi and Citronelle, Alabama, I was able to interview many of the Alfords that still live in that area. Many, many Alfords down there!!!!<br><br>
                    My research shows that Ephraim D. Alford b. 1827 had the following children with his first wife, Fannie d. 30 June 1878.<br>
                    1. E. D. Alford b. 13 Dec 1857<br>
                    2. Francis Alford b. 1864<br>
                    3. John Henry Alford b. 18 Apr 1867<br>
                    4. George Alford b. 1870<br>
                    5. W. Allen Alford b. 1871<br>
                    6. Julius Alford b. 1873<br><br>
                    Ephraim got around quite a bit. He was married to Fannie and had Frances as the housekeeper. I have pages and pages of his descendants. <br><br>
                    My grandfather was born Elbert Robert #905 was born 26 June 1897. His father, Ephraim D. married Frances 2 August 1897. None of my 'kinfolks' in south Mississippi and Alabama could believe that "Granny" wasn't married to Ephraim when she gave birth to: <br>
                    1. Lela b. 23 Mar 1881<br>
                    2. Everett Lee b. 12 Oct 1886<br>
                    3. Rufus b. 1893<br>
                    4. Elbert Robert<br>
                    I actually had to show many of them the birth certificate for Elbert and the marriage license for Ephraim to convince them. <br><br>
                    I am not sure where the whole thing started but, just my luck, I get the most confusing one in the bunch.<br><br>
                    It's a mystery for sure. <br><br></p></div><!--~-|**|PrettyHtmlStart|**|-~--><div style="color: #fff; height: 0;"></div><!--~-|**|PrettyHtmlEnd|**|-~--></body><!--~-|**|PrettyHtmlStart|**|-~--><head><style><!--
