But what happened to James,Jr? All the brothers except he moved to North Carolina. We believe he is the James that married Lucy Bailey and lived in Goochland County? We believe he had at least 4 sons, John, Jacob, James, and perhaps, William? We do not have the proof in documents but we believe this is the Alford clan that lived around Rutherford County, NC area around the 1790 census.
Ol' John Alford had a land grant there in 1782 and an elderly lady named "Lucy" lived with them. She was also in the 1800 census. Ol' John of Rutherford had 3 o r 4 sons which sold his land and these documents are on file. One of his sons was Killes Alford, who married Elizabeth Jones in 1795 and they had a son named John who was born in 1806 and married Dirisa Lunsford in 1826, documented in the records. This John was my 3-great grandfather who moved to Kentucky in 1828 to what was then Knox County. He had a son named Daniel who had a son named James (Jim Doe) who had a son named Homer, who had a son named Bill, who had a son named Kenneth, which is me.
