There must be a full moon.All of a sudden I'm getting genforum responses and some of them are from posts that are 4 years old.
If you would like to share directly with me your address, I'll be happy to photocopy and send the compete obit on Mary Ann Fry Alford.Unfortunately there is no Newspaper source.This obit and those of other siblings (including my g-g-grandfather John Fry were all pasted inside the Book of Psalms belonging to Sarah (Sallie)Fry Brainard.
I looked through my files and could not find any other reference to William BeeBe Alford (no mention of children).
Since Mary Ann was only 14 when her family moved from Copenhagen, Lewis County, NY to Lafayette, Medina Co, Ohio and I'm assuming she went with them.Jefferson County, NY is the next county over from Lewis County.Perhaps Mary Ann was acquainted with William before her family moved to Ohio and she moved back to New York and married William and remained there until moving to Colorado.
Look forward to hearing from you and will send out the Obit page as soon as possible.As far as the Newspaper source, if you do a search under Colorado Newspaper project, you might get lucky and discover that Golden only had one newspaper in 1898.
Good luck with your Obit responsibilities.Glad that William will be included.
