Benjamin Franklin Alford was born July 30, 1907 in Hopefull, AL.He died December 30, 1987.
His father's name was Arnold James Alford (b. 1882 Hopefull, Alabama).I did find out that he died September 1, 1932 and was buried in San Gabriel, CA.Also, his wife's maiden name was Johnnie Sarah Anderson (she had married a Lassiter before marrying my great-grandfather).
Arnold's father's name was William! My great-aunt says they called him "Billy" and I have an uncle who was named after him.
