Hi Marjorie, I just found out I'm related to the Brassells through the Alfords.Thomas Jefferson Alford and Emily Rebecca Mims are my ggg-grandparents through their dau. Amanda).Brittain Washington Alford and Barshaba Brassell are my gggg-grandparents.
My mom's family was all from Pike or surrounding counties and I grew up there, myself.I had made plans with my mom to visit the Alford family cemeteries next week and was hoping to get pictures of Britain Brassell's gravestone.Thanks for including the names of the roads they're on.
All the lineage information I have comes from internet genealogy sites - one an AAFA Family Tree Maker site and the other, James L. Edenfield's site at www.edenfield.org.I have no idea how accurate these pedigrees are (I assume the Alford Family Association is pretty accurate).I know there are a lot of questions regarding the birthplace of Britain Sr. and whether he was a Revolutionary Soldier or not -- seems if it's on his gravestone that would be proof..??
I would greatly appreciate any info you're willing to share with me regarding the Brassells/Alfords in my line.I will be making trips to the Archives and hopefully some other field trips in the future to gather what documented information is available.Would be happy to share anything I can find.
