According to Beverly Merritt of Ferrum, VA., there is an Alford genealogy being editing at this very moment to be published this year!!!The descendants of Benedict Alford/Alvord will run many hundreds of pages and contain thousands of Alford descendants!!!Many of our English ancestors will be listed and covered in this large volume including Thomas Alford!!! I look forward to getting my hands on this important new book very soon!!!My line comes from Nathaniel, son of Josiah, Alford who lived at Simsbury, CT. by way of his daughter Lydia Alford who married Solomon Thomas, Sr.
