With assistance of Lynn Shelly and a 1909 family photo postcard we believe with a high degree of certainty that Ervin G. Alford and Green Berry "GB" Alford are the same person. The postcard photo shows "GB" Alford and wife Mary with Ervin Alford's younger sister and her husband. The notation on the card by "GB,s" daughter Chloe refers to dad and Mama with Aunt Allie and Uncle Walter Hurst (Allie Alford and her husband). I have related, as best I know, the descendants of G.B. and Mary Alford to Lynn Shelly and will shortly e-mail family photos.
