Dear Leah, More information on Lena Sparrenberger--she appears in both the 1900 and 1920 census of Montgomery Co. AL.In 1900, she has two children, Julius born Dec. 1886 AL and Annie L, born Dec 1888 AL.In 1920 she is living with a sister.So far, I can't find her in 1910. Are you a descendant of Julius?Where did you get Charles W. as his father's name? Is that what is given on Julius' death certificate?The father had to have still been alive in the 1880's although he may have died prior to 1900. A previous contact of AAFA claimed Lena was married to Julius E. Alford, and one or both of them are buried in the Oakwood Cemetery in Montgomery Co.If we can establish the husband of Lena, we can probably trace this family back to the 1600's in VA. Please contact me if you have further information.
