I am looking for information about my great-great grandfather, Thomas Jefferson Alford, who died in Kansas, year unknown (but probably around 1900 - 1910). I'm guessing he was born about 1850, because his wife, Martha Edwards, was born in 1856 (died 1930). They farmed near Leanna, Kansas for many years, but I don't know when they arrived there. I think they came from Indiana, because Martha's parents (Henry Edwards and Parthena Gold) were married in Daviess Co. Indiana in 1847. Parthena's father was also born in Alfordsville, Daviess Co., Indiana. I found most of this information in a family tree (Family Tree Maker)that was created on the Edwards family. I'm searching for more information on the Alfords: Where did Thomas Jefferson Alford come from, and who were his parents?
I do know that Thomas Jefferson and Martha Alford had four children: Zelda, Dosia, Edna and J. Barton. I have some birth/death/marriage dates for this generation. Zelda is my great grandmother.
If you have any information, please e-mail me at email@example.com. Thanks much!
