Some time ago, an Alford family from Texas sent in an inquiry looking for their roots in North Carolina.In a reply,the person answering said members of the family were still living in the area, and the family had a store called "Tuckers Store" and the building was still there.I recently learned from notes saved by another family member, that my Grandfather,James Richard Alford,1865-1966 ran a store called "Tuckers Store" located on the old Tucker Farm in Franklin County. My Father,John B. Alford,Sr. 1901=1967 told me years ago of having a cousin who settled in Texas. i would love to hear from anyone who may know anything about this. Thank you.
