Maryellen, We have early tax lists and much county-specific data on early Alfords in GA. Most early Alfords in GA we know of came from NC and we can document when they left there in most cases. We have been compiling Alford data for over 20 years and have collected it from those who compiled it for many years prior to our beginnings. I have found an 1835 marriage in Hinds Co. MS of a Thomas Rasberry and Caroline Alford. That is one of two Alford-Rasberry marriages in that county in that time frame.Thus far, we have no others in any other place.We would not presume to say that there were no more and certainly don't claim to have compiled all the Alford data that exists.We were simply trying to establish what evidence existed for the wife of Thomas Rasberry having been an Alford.What proof do you have that an Alford was your Thomas' wife?
