Need proof of parents for a Benjamin Alford married to a Nancy Smith.
Here is what I know for sure, which isn't much.
Benjamin Alford married Nancy Smith in Aug 1892 in Daviess County, Indiana. I found the marriage information from the Indiana Marriage Index Online. Nancy died shorly after child birth in 1899. The following is only a theory so until I can come up with proof it will have to remain just that.
I believe that Benjamin may be the son of Thomas Alford and Lucinda Langford who married in Nov of 1867. I also believe that Thomas Alford is the son of Frank Alford and Mary Gilley.In 1880 Thomas and Lucinda lived in Washington, Daviess, Indiana with several children of which one was a Benjamin age 9.
Benjamin was lised as a widow in the 1900 Washington, Daviess, Indiana Census and was listed as a servant/farm laborer for a Silar Gilmore
A Benjamin Alford died in Davies County of typhoid fever Source: The Daviess County Democrat - Saturday 10 Aug 1901. It is believed to be the same Benjamin who was the widow of Nancy Smith.
Any information that would prove my theory would be much appreciated.
