Cheryl, There were many Alford families from IN, several from VA.What is the source of the information on the parents of William Henry? The only census in which I can find him is in 1900.Do you know where he went after that (I don't have 1910 IN)?Where did he and Daisy get married--Hamilton Co.? In 1900, he is living near Marion B. Alford, son of Samuel Alford and Mary Massie Fuqua in Hancock Co. in 1860.Do you have a census record with William Henry on it for 1870?He should have just been a baby but that would certainly prove his parentage.Do you have a marriage date for his parents--Andrew Alford and Susan Olvey?AAFA does not have a complete 1870 census extraction and finding no such couple in 1860, we wonder if one of the Andrews listed in 1860 could have had a second wife named Susan who we do not find in the census records we have.How do you know that William Henry was born in Noblesville, IN?Do you have a death certificate?If this is where the information on his parents came from, who was the informant? Do you know any siblings of William Henry Alford?Since he went by Henry W. in 1900, perhaps his father was a William so he was called by his middle name?? Sorry to be asking more questions instead of having answers.
