I'm an Alford descendant through Robert Alford of Augusta Co, Va. His wife apparently went by many names, including Melvina, Elvira, Lavina and Maria.
I'm related through Mary Alice "Alfred", daughter of Robert ALFORD and Melvina or "Elvira" Rodgers. Mary Alice Alfred married George N. Sandridge of Crimora, Va. Mary and George Sandridge were my great-grandparents. Some of their other children were William A., Robert Lee, Herbert Newton, Francis Marion, James Alexander, Samuel E., and Cornelius. May Alice was the only daughter.
I have some information to share with the Alford Association, and I also have a few old photos. I am hoping some members in the Alford Association who are related to people in this same family would be kind enough to share what info they have with me, and I'm happy to reciprocate.
I also have a few "mystery" photos that my Sandridge grandparents had in their memento box. I was wondering if you have a section on your website for mystery photos, where we could post them and see if any other ALford descendants might have the same photos, and could help me identify them? Even if they don't know the identity of the people in their photos, just having the same photos would help narrow things down a bit.
Thanks very much for any information you can give me.
