  The genealogy of this Lodwick Alford is fragmented
  on the Genealogy page. He is first listed as part
  of the genealogy of his grandfather John Alford
  (JOH645VA) and then he has a three generation
  listing identified to his name, and finally under
  each of his children there are links to the

  Our first real look at Lodwick was published in
  April 1983. (Select NR 3 on the "About Alfords" page.)

  In 1989 it seemed like it was time to take another
  look at Lodwick, so Gil Alford put together a paper
  which included most of what was known and what was
  thought to be known about several Lodwick Alfords.
  That nine page paper was sent to several associaties
  for their review and comment. Listed below is the
  original unmarked-up paper as well as marked-up
  copies from some of the associates who responded
  (still being scanned and processed). Next came a
  presentation about Lodwick at the 1990 Raleigh
  meeting by Christie Alford Baldwin. She later
  "reduced" the presentation to a book which is being
  scanned to add here.
