I am a descendant of John Morris Alford (son of Stephen Alford and Rebecca). I have also been trying to unravel some of this info. According to what I have - John Alford and Margaret Wilson had 5 children Lucretia (married William Allen) Risby Jane (married Richard Sutton) Stephen Alford (married Mary Ann Rowley) Anstrilla Alford(married Englishman named Irwin or Erwin?) George W. Alford
Anstrilla (may have been called Nancy?)and Englishman named Irwin had a son Stephen in 1836. Irwin died young and Stephen kept Alford name. Stephen later married Rebecca Jane.
Is Rebecca Jane a Hoback or Ward? Data seems conflicting.
