I've seen nothing that indicates Rachel Aldridge and Samuel Stiers ever had a child named Alfonzo. Possibly that name has been confused with their son Alva (also spelled Alvah on some documents). Samuel Stiers' will lists his three sons as John, Alvah and Cyrus. The will is posted at http://genconnect.rootsweb.com/genbbs.cgi/USA/In/RushWillhttp://genconnect.rootsweb.com/genbbs.cgi/USA/In/RushWill The settlement and disbursement of Mary (Lakin) Aldridges' estate of 1844 lists the three children of her deceased daughter Rachel (Aldridge) Stiers as John, Cyrus and Alva.On one document in the file Alva's name was shown as "Albert" and later lined out and corrected on subsequent pages to Alva. Samuel Stiers signed receipt for "Alva's" share in the estate.
