Yes, Olford is a common variation of Alford.I thought I would never find my 2nd great grandfather in the 1850 census and finally found him as Olford.
I suspect some folks emphasized the All sound as opposed to the Al sound for the name and the person hearing it took it as "O."It could very well be your William.I'd not discount that spelling at all.
