The Alford American Family Association published an article in the September 1990 issue of its quarterly, AAFA ACTION, about Columbus (James Floyd5, Zaddock4, Julius C.3, Lodwick2, James1). It was adapted from an article that member Ruby Alford Heard wrote for a Leake County, Mississippi, history. Ruby's father was the tenth child of Columbus, Samuel Hamilton Alford.
The article includes a large family photo taken about 1903.
