Mary, Sorry I didn't answer your query sooner.Your Alfords belong to what we call the Green River Branch of KY Alfords and go back to a William Alford born about 1775, probably in VA.D. L. was Delaney Lee Alford and was born July 9, 1871, in Edmonson Co. KY.He married 1) Nora A. Jones, Sep. 3, 1893, Ohio Co. KY; and 2) Effie Mathews, Nov. 8, 1917, Ohio Co. KY.Delaney died May 10, 1957, Ohio Co. KY. Do you know when Nora died? She is found in the 1910 census but not found in our collection of KY Death Certificates that starts in 1911.Did she die in childbirth with another child that also died? AAFA will be happy to fill you in on ancestors back as far as we have them if in return, you can give us descendants of Laura. At this point in the genealogy, we only have that she married a Beasley.
