Hi, I'm not a member of the Alfords but I am part of the Becks and I found this article in my wanderings through ancestry.com, maybe someone here can use it:
Dr. W. A. Wilson, Jr.,physician and surgeon, and now a resident of Mulberry, is a native of Mississippi, born September 20, 1854, and is the son of W. A. and Emily (Stigleg) Wilson, both natives of Ohio and of Scotch-Irish descent. The father is also a resident of Mulberry, and his sketch will appear elsewhere in these pages. W. A. Wilson, Jr., attained his growth in his native State, and received a fair education in the common schools. In 1875 he attended the medical college at Mobile, Ala., and also the medical university at Louisville, Ky., graduating from the latter institution in the spring of 1879, after which he commenced practicing, and has followed his profession ever since with remarkable success. He came to Mulberry in 1883, where he is residing and where he has an unusually large practice. He is the owner of 400 acres of land, 300 under cultivation, and in connection with his practice carries on his farming interests. He was married in 1882 to Miss Lucy L. Alford, daughter of Henry and Elizabeth (Beck) Alford, both of whom are natives of Mississippi. The daughter was also born in Mississippi in 1865, and by her marriage to Mr. Wilson became the mother of two children, Frederick and an infant. Mr. Wilson is a member of the Masonic and Odd Fellows lodges, and he and Mrs. Wilson are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church. He is a self made man, and all his property was made by his own efforts.
