I'm trying to find any information on my great grandfather Major Church (M.C.) Alford. Here's what I know about him:
M.C. Alford (b:7-21-1861 Mabon, Mississippi; d:1-16-1917 Singer, Louisiana) Maried Lulu Sims (b:7-24-1874 Newton, Alabama; d:12-26-1918 Singer, Louisiana), daughter of Sarah Virginia Lee and Barry Allison Sims, on 12-19-1893 in Warren, Texas
They had five children: (1) Minnie Sibyl Alford (b:5-6-1896 Warren, TX) who married B.F. Gainer/Gaynor -- had 2 children, Laura and Frank (2) Major Fitzhugh Alford (b:8-9-1898 Warren, TX) who married Lucilla Hatcher -- had 2 children, Lorraine and Eloise (3) Harry Comer Alford (b:5-27-1901 Warren, TX) who married Pearl Newman in 1925 -- had 2 children, HC and Louise (4) L.B. Alford (b:1-31-1903 Warren, TX) who married Allee ?? -- had 2 children, Maurice and Wallace (5) Bernice Alford (b:private) who married Iddo Burt Bankston -- had 2 children, Virginia and Sarah
My grandmother is Bernice Alford Bankston. She is still alive and kicking. Doesn't remember much about her father, as both MC and Lulu died when she was very young, and was raised by her sister. The only thing she does remember is that MC had a brother Jack Alford.
If anyone has information on parents/ancestors/siblings, it would be greatly appreciated. I would love to pull something together for my Grandma sometime in the next year. Thanks! --Tiffany Harmon
