I have a mystery regarding a plate on the entrance to the building now used as the Police station in Samson Ala.I discovered it on a research visit. The town is where My Grandfather was the first Chief of Police. The Plate says [William D. Alford "1907"] This was at the same Period When My Grand-Father was a prominent Merchant/Farmer. His old wharehouse is still there too. The Locals say the two men were related and that William D. Was also President of the Bank across the street. In AAFA data there is a William D. Alford, who is mentioned in the Master booklist as being in Mississippi. Is this another Brother of Richard R. b1842 or Henry C. Alford b1815?
