Hello: You know it is always weird to me to find out how opposite sides of my family seem to be entwined throught time.I was unaware of J. Mcclure Alford. BUT my McClure line does come from this part of Virgiaia about this same time. I find that names like this crop up as the family goes on. Even as my family migated to Kansas this seems to happen. It is as if aswhen someone was looking for a mate, someone in the familysaid..." Hey I know a good girl up the road.We knew her family when we lived back in Virgina.." Is this hy this happens? This is only my guess. It reminds me of my favorite quote...."A family is the banks though which the river of life flows"
