Home page for the late Orville Alford, AAFA #0390 (1949-2008).

Orville joined AAFA in late 1990 or early 1991 depending upon what you count. From then until 1998 he was one of the most productive of all AAFA researchers. Unlike most members Orville was interested in any and all Alfords-- not just his branch. In 1998 we collaborated on an updated genealogy of his branch of Alfords. That was the last we heard from him before he died ten years later.

We want to share with you here most of what Orville wrote to us and we are in the slow process of updating the genealogy.

Application and early letters all in one pdf file including:

In August 1992 Orville sent a letter espousing a theory connecting the Alfords of Franklin Co., NC with those of Rutherford Co., NC. In addition to his handwritten copy we prepared a printed copy. Both pdf copies are linked below.
