John A. or M. Alford, born 6/6/1840 in Alabama, mar, Mary E. Burgess, born 12/29/1842, also in Alabama.They had two children that I know of:John D. "Gilbert" Alford, born 1872, mar. Sudie Isabel Oliver, and Thomas Hoy Alford, who married Sallie Vinnie Oliver.These Oliver girls parents were Bailey Rhames Oliver, born 3/7/1830 and Sally Parker.I think they were in Alabama and Tennessee, ending up in Shelby Co. Tx. where they are all buried.Does anyone recognize these names?Also the Hailey name? The daughter of Thomas Hoy Alford, Rena Mae Alford married Thomas Morris Hailey, son of Robert E. Hailey and Ellie Hughes. Please email me at:email@example.com I would very much appreciate any information of this maternal side of my family....not many records were kept.
