I am looking for information on the family of Job Alford (Alvord) and Margaret Wood.I have seen the following on the internet, but have some questions:
Job Alford: b: 26 Aug 1708, Windsor, Hartford, Connecticut d: 4 Sep 1738, Harwinton, Litchfield, Connecticut m: Margaret Wood, 12 Feb 1735, in Hartford, Hartford, CT
Margaret Wood: b: abt 1712
Job Alford M b: 3 Jul 1736 in Windsor, Hartford, CT m: Jerusha Burnham John Alford M b: 4 Sep 1738 in Windsor, Hartford, CT m: Annice Judd Alexander Alford M b: 7 Jul 1741 in Harwinton, Litchfield, CT m: Elizabeth Ely Mary Alford F b: 2 Dec 1743 in Litchfield, Litchfield, CT m: Unknown William Alford M b: 7 Dec 1745 in Harwinton, Litchfield, CT m: Abigail Dorchester Elizabeth Alford F b: 22 Jul 1752 in Litchfield, Litchfield, CT m: Unknown Eliphalet Alford M b: 22 Jul 1752 in Litchfield, Litchfield, CT m: Dorcas Ely
Here are my questions:
1)Job Alford’s death date is listed as 4 Sep 1738, the same as his second son’s birth date.Yet, there are five more children up to 22 Jul 1755.What is Job’s real death date?
2)Margaret’s name obviously would have been Margaret Alford.However, in a 1791 land record in Harwinton she is listed as “Margaret Judd” transacting some property business with her son Eliphalet.Did Margaret Wood Alford re-marry to a man named Judd?If yes, what was the name of her second husband?
3)Neither Mary nor Elizabeth Alford is listed with a husband.Did these two sisters ever get married?If yes, what were the names of their husbands?And what were their whereabouts after the got married?
