Hi All; Billy Ray Alday Family goes back to and Beyond His GrGrandFather James Daniel Alday to the Howard Sasser and I, Billy Ray Alday, have material to connect as far back as 1741 in Craven Cty.,N.C.to Thomas Sasser. He would be my GrGrGrGrandFather. Unsubstanuated even futher back. We'll just start with Thomas Sasser b 1760/1775 in N.C. d after 26 Dec 1821 in Scr. Cty. Ga.m 1790-1795 to CLARISY. Mr. Robert E. Woodham has also researched this family for more than 25 yr.s. Thomas and Clarisy had twelve childern and I shall return to list them. One daughter, Clarisa, married Matthew Faircloth and my GrGrandFather James Daniel married their first daughter and child Louisa in 1845. At this time this is as far back as I can trace my namesake Alday.One suggested their name was Holiday in Ingland but I have not proven this. Thus My ALDAY trace is to James Daniel m1845.
