on my great grandfathers death certificate his father is listed as J F York born in Germany and mother is Mary Wilson born in Arkansas.My great grandfather was Alford Newton York.He was born in 1872.He had brothers, Albert, Billy, Ashley, sister Mollie.Alford raised his family around Frost & Pisgah Ridge in Navarro Co and Tehuacana Valley in Limestone Co. Tx. I cannot locate him before 1900.These birth places on J F & Mary could be reversed.The aunt could have gotten them mixed up on the certificate.She did that sometimes. His death certificate came from Palo Pinto Co. where he died in Mineral Wells in 1937.He possibly was visiting family in Brazos Texas.I would like to locate him with his parents and siblings.I've been looking in 1880 census' in various counties but have not located him.The index of the census is not a very good indicator that someone is not there.It misses people that are there when searching page by page.
I anyone sees anything please contact me. Linda York Hudson
