I am so pleased and excited to find someone with some infomation on James!!!I have some pictures of Sippie, only one of her w/ James. I have so many questions, I don't know where to start! 1. Which of James and Sippie's children are you descended from? (Roy Lee Aliff is my Grandfather) 2. Where did the nickname "Steve" come from? 3. Do you know for sure that he is a "blood" Aliff .... that is, any records that suggest his father John lived long enough to actually be his true biological father. 4. Do you have any contact with descendants of "Steve's" older brothers/sisters? 5. Why is there no record of his birth? (may be related to question #3 above??)
Please respond .... you may be the answer to many a prayer.My father is still alive .... if you are a son of Edward or Harry, then my dad is your first cousin and I am your first cousin, once removed. We may even have met before ..... unfortunantely it was probably when I was a very young child at one of the Aliff funerals in Huntington.Please write back soon!I will gladly answer any questions you may have for me also. I have alot of info on Steele and Aliff relatives dating back to the 1700's and Europe."Steve" has always been the mystery link because of the date of his birth <1880> and reported date of his father's death <1878>.
