I have been searching for my husband's great grandfather, Oliver Perry Alford, Jr.I recently found out that Oliverhad a brother Smith Alford. In a search, I was able to find the post about Mitchell Carey and thus Cary F. Alford. I didn't have much info and was so relieved to finally find something. I would love to swap info, though it sounds as if you would get the short end of the stick. My husband's grandfather is John Randolph Tucker ALFORD, J.R.T's father was Oliver Perry ALFORD, Jr. and Oliver's father was of course Oliver Perry Alford Sr. I am new to this whole genforum thing and don't know the best way to contact you. My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org, if it would be better to continue this privately. I'm so happy that I found you. Thank you.
