I'm looking for information on my great great grandfather. All I know is his name was William Alford and he was from Georgia and maybe Alabama. His son, my great grandfather was John A. Alford born 6/6/1840 in Ashville, Alabama and died 4/8/1907. He was a sergeant in the 58th Alabama Inf. Company D. He is buried in Tenaha (Shelby County TX). My grandfather was Thomas Hoy Alford born 9/21/1879 in Shelby County Texas and died8/4/1923. He's also buried in Tenaha (Shelby County TX). My father was J.T. Alford born 6/28/1913 in Shelby County Texas and he died 4/23/1963 in Carthage, Panola County Texas. My father is buried in DeBerry (Panola County) TX.
