This listing was updated on June 18, 2016.

Please!! Help the Alford American Family Association with corrections and expansion of our cemetery data. Comments, corrections, and additions are invited and your information may be exactly that for which an Alford cousin has been searching. Throughout our cemetery listings you will find buttons where you may add new interments, relocate interments if they are in the wrong place, and correct our data if necessary.

Records that have been recently added or revised are color coded for your convenience. New interments that have been recently added have the name shown in red print, and recently revised records have the name shown in blue. The color coding will normally remain in place until the state cemetery listing is updated. For states that are undergoing major reviews by the project officer, and updates are being posted frequently, the color coding will remain in place for at least 30 days.

The buttons that allow you to provide cemetery data directly to AAFA are located in several places. In the header for each county listing, you will see an Add Record button, which allows you to add an interment record in a cemetery that does not appear in the county listing. When you submit a record using this button, the AAFA Data Manager will create the new cemetery, and add the interment record. It may take several days for the submission to appear on the website, but rest assured the Data Manager is updating records as rapidly as possible.

There is also an Add Record button in the heading for each cemetery in the county listing. This button also generates a form for the submission of a new record in the cemetery in which the button is included. We put this button on the opposite side of the cemetery heading to help distinguish it from the Add Record to County button described in the preceding paragraph.

Each grave listed in this report has two associated buttons that provide means for you to submit corrections to AAFA. At the left of each grave listed, you will find a Revise button, while on the right you will find a Relocate button. The Revise button located on the left of the grave record allows you to add or revise any or all of the date elements that AAFA collects for cemeteries, while the Relocate button lets you tell us that the grave should be in a different cemetery.

Each of the buttons described above generates a form in a new window of your web browser. The forms provide blanks for you to fill in to add to or correct our data. Each form has detailed instructions for entering your data to submit to us.

AAFA values your contributions to our data collection efforts, and will be as responsive as possible in posting your data to the website. Each form has a check box that allows to you to tell us whether to credit your name in our sources for the data you provide.

AAFA has included the names of parents and spouses whenever they can be identified. Please provide any information that you may have where we have incorrect or missing information.

Not included in this report is information pertaining to sources and references. Those who have need for this data may email a request to Wayne Parrish. Most of this information, including the sources and references was published in AAFA ACTION #75, Spring 2007.

Abbreviations, all of which may not be in this list, are:
b. = born, d. = died, m. = married
c/o = child of, d/o = daughter of, s/o = son of, h/o = husband of, w/o = wife of
i/o = infant of, t/o = twins of, m/o = mother of, f/o = father of, gs/o = grandson of.

The reference number to the left of each name is a permanent reference number to that interment, and will remain the same when the report is updated. You may refer to the reference number with comments or corrections to the project manager.

The “Family” reference identifies a branch of the Alford families wherever possible. The Family reference will usually be either a single set of 8 alphanumeric characters or two such sets. If there are two sets, e.g., ZAD787GA/JOH645VA, the first set (ZAD787GA - Zadock 1787 Georgia) identifies the intermediate ancestor, and the second set (JOH645VA - John 1645 VA) identifies the ultimate (earliest we have identified) ancestor. Generally, we try to choose the intermediate ancestor so that his date of birth is around 1800. If there is a single set, e.g., JOH801GA, it identifies only the ultimate ancestor. We are making a concerted effort to ensure that the intermediate and ultimate ancestor are the subjects of genealogies on the AAFA internet website.

For some counties, you will find an "Unknown" Cemetery at the end of the county listing. These are interments that we have not been able to locate in a named cemetery. Obituaries and even death certificates frequently do not contain the cemetery location. If you know the cemetery location for an interment that we have listed in an "Unknown" cemetery, PLEASE take a moment to let us know. Just click the Relocate button to the right of the interment entry. A very short form will open in a new window, and you can enter the correct cemetery name, county and state (if necessary), your name and email address, and send it directly to us.

You may click on a county name to jump directly to that county listing. There is also an index of names and an index of cemeteries.
