Help !I have found mountains of information on the Alford family, but have been unable to connect it with what little I know about my grandmother's family.Hoping one of you can help me connect the dots.Here is what little I have - hopefully it will ring some bells with someone out there.
My grandmother was Mary Ellen Alford, she was born March 14, 1895 in Ohio. (The family moved to Virginia about that time, and have also heard that she was born in Virginia).She married Lester Ernest Loveday in 1924 in Jefferson, Marion County, Texas
Her parents were: Landon Alford - born March 1865 reportedly in Tennessee, and Sallie M. Elkins - born January 1862 in Tennessee-- Married approx 1884.
Siblings included (took dates from family papers - so not validated - but best I have at this point) George W. Alford----- June 1885 Anna Alford ----------- May 1886 Polly Ann Alford ------ 1886 -she & Anna MAY have been twins Albert Ernest Alford ---1887 Geneva Jeanette Alford - May 1892 (married Steve Hicks) Charles Alford --------- 1901
Prior to marriage to my grandfather, she & sister Jeanette (Geneva) traveled with Buffalo Bill's wild west show for a time (Sharpshooter act).
