is this the same "John Alford" who seems to have been born in Maryland in 1696; or, could your English born John be the 'Md./Virginia' John's dad ? We will be back there around Frederick & Kent Co. VA., 08-21-99, is there anyone local who we might contact... We are from Arch Alford who was apparently born in Kansas in 1869. from Charles. from John. from Thomas. from 'Virginia' John and Mary - 1696 to 1748... Frederick Co. and are we related ?
