if you go to the Alford Family Association homepage, you will find a partial genealogy of the Alford family, including a james alford who married a lucy bailey. the URL is http://www.alford.com/alford/aafa/homepage.htmlhttp://www.alford.com/alford/aafa/homepage.html
just go to the databank and it's under john alford b. 1645. there's a lot of stuff in there so keep your eyes open! i believe that your james is son of james alford b. 1687 who is the son of john alford. hope this helps!
