Hi my name is Michael lafate Alberson My father who was born in 1923 was named David Lafate Alberson, His father was named Franklen Alberson and his father was named Henderson Lafate Alberson, and I think that his father's name is John Alberson. I have never researched my family tree. This information is from family and from bollinger county marriage reccords that a friend researching her familly tree ran accross and sharred with me. I recently aquired internet serviece and was wondering where the name alberson originated and was looking for such information when found this question about my great grandfather's middle name, Well I know quite well what it was, Lafate that is how my folks spelled it and it is how it was spelled on the bollinger reccords but I always wondered if it was an adulteration of lafayette. If anyone knows more than this about this particular lineage of Alberson please contact me at my above E-mail address. Thank you: Mike L. Alberson.
