HOPKINS CO., KY

 

LOCOMOTIVE BLASTS

 

            A fatal accident occurred near Henderson last Friday, a young man by the name of Alex Alford, who was in the employ of the Western Union Telegraph Company, who, for the past few months have been rebuilding the telegraph line along the L.&N. between Henderson and Guthrie, while in the act of climbing a pole and when near the top fell to the ground, a distance of about twenty feet, breaking his spine at a point near the neck. He only lived about one day after the accident occurred.

            He was a resident of Columbia, Tenn., where his remains were shipped for interment last Sunday.

            Out of a crew of fifteen men, Mr. Alford was regarded as the best climber, and his friends are at a loss to know how he came to slip and fall from so short a pole.

DEATH OF ALECK H. ALFORD

 

            At half-past 11 o’clock last night Mr. Aleck H. Alford, the young gentleman who was among the injured at the tragic accident of Floyd’s Fork on the Short-line, died at the residence of his aunt, Mrs. Wm. Johnson, No. 932 Franklin street. The death of this excellent young gentleman will be learned with deep regret by all who knew him. His bravery in the face of death, during the weeks of unrelated suffering to him that have elapsed since the terrible accident on the Short-line, has attracted marked attention and admiration. He died without having murmured a single time. Arrangements for the funeral will be made to day.

ALEXANDER ALFORD

INURNED WITH IMPRESSIVE KNIGHT TEMPLAR CEREMONIES AT CAVE HILL CEMETERY YESTERDAY

 

            The last victim of the Short-line railroad calamity—Alexander H. Alford—after lingering nearly two months in great agony, relieved by opiates and sustained by the heroic spirit of dawning manhood, at last succumbed to the grim visitor. Death.

            The Knights Templar and a large concourse of his friends assembled at the Christian church, at Floyd and Chestnut streets, yesterday afternoon to pay “the last sad tribute of respect” to all that was earthly of young Alexander Humboldt Alford.

            An escort of sixteen Knight of Louisville Commandery was detailed by Eminent Commander Sir John H. Leathers to accompany the remains from the house of mourning to the church. Meanwhile the Commandery proper, to the number of fifty Sir Knights, awaited the arrival of the funeral cortege in the vicinage, at Chestnut and Floyd streets….

 

SERVICES AT THE GRAVE

 

            The floral offering attracted everybody—his youth, our clime, his unsullied character, a Mason, only son, brother, Templar, all. The florists deserve credit. All designs that could be thought of were represented, and if a flowery tribute could compensate or assuage his poor mother’s grief, Humboldt’s friends tried to allay that loss to his mother and loving sisters….

Lexington, Fayette Co., KY—2 October 1913

 

            Mrs. Mary E. Boone, Elizabeth Cawby and J.W. Alford, heirs of Mrs. Alice McMee, filed suit in the Fayette Circuit Court yesterday against William McMee and Dr. David A. Crosby, asking the court to cancel a deed by which Mrs. McMee and her husband, William McMee, conveyed a tract of land … to Dr. Crosby and the deed by which Dr. Crosby conveyed the same property to Mrs. McMee’s husband.

            The petition alleges that within about three weeks after the death of Mrs. Alice McMee, her husband married again. The court is asked to set aside a mortgage for $750 which McMee and his second wife executed to Dr. Crosby. It is alleged that at the time Mrs. McMee executed the first deed Mrs. McMee could not lawfully execute a deed as her mind was impaired from excessive use of morphine. The plaintiffs asks that the property be sold and the proceeds divided among the heirs after payment costs….

CARY F. ALFORD

 

MORNING HERALD

Lexington, Fayette Co., KY—5 May 1897

 

            After a brief but severe illness, Mr. Cary F Alford died at his home near Lexington yesterday at noon. The funeral services will be conducted by Rev. Dr W.H. Felix at the home this afternoon at 4 o’clock, and the interment will be at the Lexington cemetery.

            Mr. Alford was one of four brothers who have for many years been identified in many honorable ways with Central Kentucky. The eldest, Mr. Smith Alford, died quite a while ago, leaving descendents in Woodford. Another, Mr. Richard F. Alford, who moved to Lexington from Payne’s Depot a few years ago, and went from here to live in Tennessee, where he owned property, died there last year. The remaining brother is Mr. Oliver P. Alford, of this city.

            Mr. Cary F. Alford moved to Fayette from his native county of Garrard and settled near the Jessamine line. His wife, who died about twelve years ago, was Miss Margaret Mitchell, of Jessamine county.

            Two children survive—Hon. Mitchell C. Alford, so well known as one of the most popular public men of our State and his sister, Mrs. McConarty [sic: McConathy], the wife of Mr. Asa McConarty.

            The death of Mr. Alford will be mourned by many who loved and admired him. He was “Uncle Cary” to all and was peculiarly a favorite with young and old. His kindness and courteousness to every one, his interest in the welfare of others than himself, his constant cheerfulness, his rare simplicity of life so distinctive of the gentry of our country, made him greatly beloved.

            In his business relations he was noted for rectitude of conduct.

            He passed away in the fulness of a long life spent in the duties of an earnest, Christian citizen.

2 DIE AS TRUCK, INTERURBAN HIT

TRAM WRECKS MOTOR CROSSING TRACKS AT FRANKFORT AND MAYFAIR

MOTORMAN IS ARRESTED

 

            Two employes of the Stiglitz Furnace Company. 123 West Main Street, were instantly killed Tuesday morning when an inbound Pewee Valley interurban car struck a truck in which they were riding at Frankfort and Mayfair Avenues, knocking it more than 100 feet.

            The employes were Charles Alford, 38 years old. 464 East Brandeis Avenue, and Lee Stith, 34, of 818 North Thirty-third Street.

            The truck, driven by Alford, going out Frankfort Avenue, had turned south to Mayfair Avenue and was crossing the interurban tracks when struck and demolished, it was said. The car was operated by Ray C.-Moreland. 36, of 129 South Twenty-second Street, motorman, and John Osborne, conductor, 1418 Winter Avenue.

            Moreland said the car was going about twenty-five miles an hour and that he blew a warning whistle when he saw the truck approaching from the opposite direction, although he had no idea that the truck would turn in front of the car. When the interurban was only a few feet away the truck cut in front of it and it was too late to avoid the crash. More-and said.

            Gus Breuner, 102 Mayfair Avenue, said the men on the truck appeared to be looking at him cutting grass and probably did not see the interurban until a second before the crash.

            Moreland was arrested on a manslaughter charge by county patrolmen and was paroled by County Judge Henry I. Fox. Coroner Roy L. Carter, after an examination, said the men died of fractured skulls.

            Mr. Alford is survived by his wife Mrs. Viola Alford; two step-children, Embert and Naomi Reichel; his mother, Mrs. Mary Alford; four sisters, Mrs. Florence Lang, Mrs. Elizabeth Kleier [sic: Kleyer], Mrs. Anne Chappel and Mrs. Mattie Marmilot, and two brothers, Frank Alford and William Alford….

            State Detective Robert Miracle is investigating the death of Jack Alford of Trosper (Knox county) who was found dead near his home Saturday night [July 28].

            Officials theorize that Alford apparently had an accident in his own car and the vehicle ran over an embankment. Apparently Alford climbed back up the embankment to the road (Kay Jay) where his body was later found by a passing motorist. Alford had been run over by another vehicle and dragged several feet along the road. Which injuries were sustained in which mishap have not been determined.

RICHMOND TIMES-DISPATCH

Richmond, VA—Saturday, 16 February 1929

 

BOWLING GREEN, KY., Feb. 15—Two persons are dead and a third is near death at a hospital here as the result of a gun battle last night between a group of roadhouse patrons.

            Mrs. Tom Renfrow, wife of the proprietor, was slain when Clif Alford returned to the place with a shotgun a short time after her husband had ejected Alford, his two brothers, Homer and Robert Alford, and “Crip” Jarvis, officers were told.

            Renfrow grabbed a gun when he saw the armed man approaching, and Mrs. Renfrow sprang to protect him.

            Elmer Turner, son-in-law of the Renfrows, it was said, opened fire on Alford and shot him three times.

            Alford died at the city hospital early this morning.

            Robert Alford was wounded twice by bullets from Turner’s revolver and he is not expected to live.

            On the way back to town the touring car in which the Alford boys were riding collided with a parked truck and overturned in the street. It was there that patrolmen found the two men, desperately wounded. They were taken to the county jail and immediately afterward transferred to the hospital.

            Turner was not arrested.

DIES OF HIS WOUNDS

HARDIN ALFORD KILLED BY HENRY SHANKS, HIS FORMER BONDSMAN

 

BOWLING GREEN, Ky., Dec. 26—Hardin Alford was shot by Henry Shanks yesterday near Cherry’s Chapel, dying of his wounds.

            The events which led to the shooting date back several months, when Alford was in court here and was placed under a $250 bond, with Shanks as his bondsman. He failed to appear at the September term of court and the bond was forfeited. Mr. Shanks, hearing that he was in the Cherry’s Chapel neighborhood yesterday, was deputized as a Constable and went out to arrest Alford. He asked Alfred Cox to assist him, and together they went to Cherry’s Chapel, where a Christmas entertainment was in progress. As they approached Alford came out, and they informed him that they had come to arrest him. It is said he stepped back a few feet and reached for his gun, and that he had it in his hand when Shanks fired the fatal bullet, which entered just over Alford’s left eye. He lived only a few hours.

            This is the first killing that has occurred in this county in two years.

 

AAFA NOTES: Hardin was the son of Pleasant Calvin Alford and Melissa Jane Goff.

LONE MAN ROUTS GANG FROM HOME

ONE OF SEVEN ATTACKERS IS SLAIN BY OFFICER, TWO ARE CAPTURED

FAKE SEARCH WARRANT IS SERVED ON FARMER NEAR BARDSTOWN

 

BARDSTOWN, Ky., July 11—A young Nelson County farmer beat off an attack by seven armed men at daylight today unaided. With rifle bullets he drove them from his farm home, pursued them by motor down the highway, knocked their automobile from the road and captured one of them. Officers who came to his aid killed one of the seven and captured another. A posse of 100 men tonight searched Larue and Nelson Counties for the remaining four, who fled through the fields.

            The man who repulsed the armed band is Walter Hall, who lives with his mother, Mrs. Franklin Hall, at her farmhouse near New Haven, twelve miles south of Bardstown.

 

CLAIM TO BE OFFICERS

 

            He met the seven men in his yard early this morning. They told him they were Federal prohibition agents, and showed him what purported to be a warrant authorizing a search of the premises. Hall recognized the document as an automobile bill of sale, and ran to the house, dodging bullets. Inside the Hall home, the young man opened fire with a rifle. His assailants laid down a barrage either of machine gun or shotgun fire, breaking every window pane in the house. It is estimated 100 shots were exchanged in the gun battle.

            Abandoning the attack, the seven men drove away in Hall's automobile. He pursued them in another motor, and caught up with them at Atherton, between Hodgenville and New Haven. He rammed the motor into the automobile, wrecking both motors. Six of the men fled across a field, but Hall captured one, Ceci1 Shelto Detheridge, 21 year old of Bowling Green, KY.

 

TELEPHONE FOR AID

 

            Hall's family had had telephoned New Haven for aid, and he was joined by Sheriff Boone Peake and Deputy Sheriff Martin Bowling. They pursued the fleeing men. Bowling shot one of them through the head, the victim dying shortly afterward. The dead man was Homer Alford, 24, also of Bowling Green.

            The men refused to discuss their attack, and would give no reason for their actions, saying they first wished to consult lawyers. Officers believe they were a hi-jacking crew, who went to the Hall farm by mistake….

            Alford's sister. Mrs. Herschel Cherry, left Bowling Green late today to claim the body of her brother. Alford leaves a wife and two small children in Warren County. His parents are Mr. and Mrs. William Alford. A brother, Robert Alford, is serving a sentence in Warren County Jail for liquor law violation.

            Another brother. Cliff Alford, in 1929 killed Mrs. Tom Renfrow, wife of a proprietor of a roadhouse near Bowling Green. Cliff was fatally

            Another brother, Cliff Alford, in 1929 killed Mrs. Tom Renfrow, wife of a proprietor of a roadhouse near Bowling Green. Cliff was fatally wounded by Mrs. Renfrow's son-in-law, Elmer Turner. Turner was acquitted.

            Homer Alford was acquitted last month by a Warren Circuit Court jury on a minor charge….

            Homer Alford's wife, at Bowling Green, said her husband left home last night with a man named Compton.

LEDGER INDEPENDENT

Maysville, Mason Co., KY—Friday, 2 December 2016

 

BROOKSVILLE—A graduate of Bracken County High School has been killed in what officials called a freak accident.

            James Alford graduated with the BCHS Class of 2016 and had been in Boone County when the accident happened on Thursday, friends said.

            According to officials, Alford was killed while repairing a truck transmission.

            "We received a 911 hang up call at 7:55 p.m., in the 2700 block of Lawrenceburg Ferry Road, and deputies went to investigate," said Tom Scheben of Boone County Sheriff's Office. "(Alford) was found under a pick-up truck. Petersburg Fire Department and EMS and Boone County Coroner's Office were also called to the scene."

            According to people at the scene, Alford had been repairing the transmission when the truck rolled and fell on him.

            "It is a very sad situation," Scheben said.

            Alford's family in Bracken County was notified of his death by police, officials said.

            "(Alford) was a great archer, true friend, outdoorsman and the hardest working young man I've ever had the privilege to know," Pat Taylor of the Bracken County Archery team posted on social media. "And may I add, James was mentor and role model for teammates and friends."

            Alford made headlines in June when he was bitten by a rabid fox while helping on a Bracken County farm.

            He was treated for the bite, including multiple injections, and an infection of the bite location on his wrist, he said in June.

            In the meantime, he had moved on with his life, friends said.

            Boone County Sheriff's Office is investigating the accident.

Wreck injuries claim life of Ludlow man

By Craig Garretson, Post staff reporter

 

            One of 10 people injured in a two-car collision in Boone County, Ky., on Tuesday has died.

            Jeremy Alford, 21, of Ludlow, died Friday at University Hospital in Cincinnati. He was critically injured when the car he was riding in collided head-on with a minivan Tuesday at 4:28 p.m. The car was trying to pass a tractor-trailer truck in a no-passing zone on U.S. 42 near Rice Pike outside Union.

            The driver of the car, Jimmy Good, 21, of Florence, is in the Boone County Jail after receiving treatment at the University of Kentucky Medical Center. He’s charged with nine counts of assault in the second degree and one count of wanton endangerment, with bail set at $100,000 cash, said Lt. Jack Banks of the Boone County Sheriff’s Department.

            Banks said Sunday that charges might be upgraded against Good today because of Alford’s death.

            Alford was a meat handler with Bluegrass Provisions in Crescent Springs. His wife, 18-year-old Cinnamon Alford, and three-month-old daughter, Savannah Alford, also were injured in the wreck; Savannah has been released from Children’s Hospital, but Mrs. Alford was in serious condition at University Hospital Sunday night, according to nursing supervisors.

            By Sunday, the other six people injured in the crash had been released from area hospitals….

Florence man indicted in fatal head-on crash

By Paul A. Long, Post staff reporter

 

            A Boone County grand jury has indicted a Florence man, saying he is responsible for killing a man and injuring eight others in a massive head-on collision last month.

            The driver, Jimmy D. Good, 21, faces charges of manslaughter, assault and wanton endangerment as the result of the wreck, which required three helicopters and six ambulances to transport the injured. It shut down U.S. 42 between Frogtown Road and Ridge Road for about two hours.

            Three days after the July 17 accident, Jeremy Alford, 21, of Ludlow, died at University Hospital in Cincinnati.

            The second-degree manslaughter charge relates to Alford’s death. Good was also indicted on eight counts of second-degree assault and one count of wanton endangerment.

            Each of the manslaughter and assault charges carries a prison term of five to 10 years. Wanton endangerment is punishable by one to five years in prison.

            The indictment says Good caused the wreck when he tried to pass a garbage truck in a no-passing zone ‘‘where oncoming traffic was not visible’’ on the two-lane portion of U.S. 42 near Rice Pike in Union.

            Both cars appeared to be traveling at or near the speed limit, police said.

            Police said Good’s 1986 Pontiac Grand Am, traveling west, collided head-on with an eastbound 1992 Plymouth Colt Vista minivan. Alford was a passenger in Good’s car.

            Five people were flown by helicopter to local hospitals; another five were taken by ambulance. Firefighters used the Jaws of Life device to cut through the wreckage to extricate the passengers, freeing all 10 in less than an hour.

Fatal wreck sends driver to jail

Judge: No mistake but criminal act

By Paul A. Long, Post staff reporter

 

            Pamela Augur held a few shards of glass in her hand as she stood before Boone Circuit Judge Jay Bamberger.

            The glass—from the car in which her son, Jeremy Alford, was killed—is shattered just like the life of her family, she told the judge….

            Tuesday, the man who admitted that he caused that wreck that killed Alford was sentenced to a year in prison. As part of a plea agreement, Jimmy D. Good also was put on probation for five years.

            “It’s not an accident,’’ Bamberger told Good of the wreck. “If it was an accident, you wouldn’t be here. It’s criminal conduct.’’

            Good, 23, of Florence—who is Alford’s brother-in-law—previously pleaded guilty to a charge of reckless homicide, five counts of felony assault, three counts of misdemeanor assault and one count of wanton endangerment.

            Good was the driver of a car that passed a garbage truck in a no-passing zone on a two-lane portion of U.S. 42 near Rice Pike in Union….

            Boone Commonwealth Attorney Linda Tally Smith said the agreement was worked out because evidence showed neither speeding nor alcohol was involved in the crash.

SEMI-WEEKLY INTERIOR JOURNAL

Stanford, Lincoln Co., KY—Friday, 21 October 1904

 

            Mr. J.R. Alford, one of Stanford’s oldest and best citizens, died about 5 o’clock Tuesday afternoon after a protracted illness of a complication of diseases. The burial took place in Buffalo cemetery Wednesday afternoon after services at the home of Mr. George D. Wearen conducted by Revs. P.J. Ross and Gilbert Glass.

            Deceased was a warm hearted, good man and the many friends he left sorrow at his taking away. Mr. Alford was born March 11, 1816, near South Fork, Lincoln county, this State. He came to Stanford when a mere youth to serve an apprenticeship with a blacksmith, Mr. Berry, and boarded with him in the same house in which he has lived continuously for 52 years.

            On July 20, 1837, he was married to Miss Amanda Jane Cox, of Mercer county. They spent their early married life in Washington and Anderson counties, coming to Stanford about 1852 where they spent the remainder of their lives, she having died Aug. 21, 1886.

            Marion Alton “Hotshot” Alford, 81, of Owensboro and formerly of Panther, passed away Monday, April 5, 2010, at Owensboro Medical Health System.

            Mr. Alford, the son of the late Wilbur Thomas Alford and Lila Robertson Alford, was born and raised in Panther, where he lived most of life before moving to Owensboro. He graduated from West Louisville High School where he was co-valedictorian and played on the basketball team, then attended Western Kentucky University on an academic scholarship. His love of learning was lifelong.

            Mr. Alford started working for Green Coal Co. in his late teens, his first job being moving drilling equipment from his father’s farm to the mine using a team of horses, followed by sweeping floors and oiling machinery, with his first official position being that of weigh master. He ultimately ran the main office of Green Coal with responsibility for more than 10,000 acres of mining activity. He took great pride in his work and in hiring local workers for the company. Mr. Alford was very active in mine reclamation and was appointed by former Gov. Edward Breathitt to the first 10-member Mining Reclamation Committee. His work with post mining land use included the formation of a number of lakes, including Diamond Lake in west Daviess County. A veteran of the Korean conflict, Mr. Alford served in the United States Navy from 1951 until 1955, serving aboard the USS Kennebec. He retired from Green Coal Co. as general superintendent of mines following 42 years of service. He owned a farm in Panther which ultimately became the back-9 of Panther Creek golf course. An active member of Century Christian Church, he enjoyed religious music.

            For several years Mr. Alford was active with Habitat for Humanity, being involved with the construction of a number of Habitat houses and the sponsor of one. A 60-year Mason, he was a member and Past Master of Monsarrat Lodge Number 379 at Panther. Mr. Alford was a Kentucky Colonel.

            He was also preceded in death by his sisters, Oleighla Pinkston and Ernestine Berry.

            Surviving are his wife of 58 years, Martha Jean York Alford; his sister, Helen B. Reeves of Owensboro; his niece, Lila Ann Allen of Evansville; his nephews, Fred Reeves of Owensboro and Bobby Pinkston of Hartford; and many great-nephews and great-nieces.

            Services, officiated by Dr. Tom Norvell and the Rev. Jim Westmoreland, are noon Thursday at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory Chapel, where visitation will be from 2 to 8 p.m. today and after 10 a.m. Thursday.

            See the obituaries of his siblings King Wesley Alford and Mittie Alford Large in this compilation.

            On his 1918 WWI Draft Registration Card (Ancestry), Marion Frank Alford lists his birth date as 18 June 1900. His closest relative is R.A. Alford, and he signed his name with his mark.

            He was the son of Raleigh P. Alford and China N. Overton. Curiously, he is listed as Samuel, born June 1900, on the 1900 census, Knox Co., KY—enumerated on June 19, when he was one day old, so perhaps his name hadn’t been firmly chosen yet:

AUTO DRIVER ARRESTED AFTER WOMAN'S DEATH

MRS. ANDREW J. ALFORD IS VICTIM OF INJURIES

UNCONSCIOUS SINCE ACCIDENT LAST THURSDAY

MANSLAUGHTER IS CHARGED

 

            After having been in an unconscious condition for more than five days, Mrs. Mary Alford, wife of Andrew J. Alford, local field manager for P.F. Collier & Son, died at her home, 927 South Second street, at 8:10 o clock last night. She was struck by an automobile driven by Edward Finn, of 821 West Jefferson street, at Second and Breckinridge streets last Thursday morning. Finn, who was arrested following the accident, on charge of malicious assault and later released on bond, was rearrested last night, the charge having been amended to manslaughter.

            Mrs. Alford was rendered unconscious when struck by the machine and she remained in that state to death. Her skull was fractured in three places, her shoulders were bruised and cut and her entire body was bruised. She also suffered concussion of the brain. Six physicians and two surgeons were called to attend her, but medical science was powless to aid her or prolong her life.

            Mrs. Alford left her home shortly after 10 o’clock Thursday morning to visit a friend on the Seventh-street park line. She was attempting to cross at Second and Breckinridge streets when the auto, which belongs to Longest Bros., struck her. According to the driver, he was going at a rate of speed not in excess of ten miles an hour. He said the woman was standing in the street. He said he thought she would step back upon the pavement at his approach, but instead walked in the path of his car.

            After striking her the auto passed over her body. She was taken to the home of Mrs. D.H. Head, 200 West Breckinridge street, and later removed to her home. She was identified by means of letters, which she had received at her home a short time before.

            Mrs. Alford was a native of Harrisburg, Pa., and was 40 years of age. She formerly was Miss Mary Ashton, having been the daughter of William Ashton, a railroad man. She resided in Harrisburg until about twenty years ago when she removed to Louisville following her marriage to Mr. Alford. Besides her husband she has no relatives nearer than cousins, who reside in Pennsylvania.

MITCHELL CARY ALFORD

 

LEXINGTON HERALD-LEADER

Lexington, Fayette Co., KY—10 December 1914

 

SHORT ILLNESS OF PNEUMONIA FATAL TO PROMINENT LEXINGTON LAWYER AND ONCE ACTIVE POLITICIAN

HEAD OF IMPORTANT SENATE COMMITTEES

NOMINATED WITHOUT OPPOSITION ON TICKET WITH JOHN YOUNG BROWN

 

            Former Lieutenant Governor Mitchell C. Alford, one of the best known men in Kentucky, died at the Good Samaritan Hospital last night at 7:45 o’clock. His death was directly due to pneumonia, with which he was attacked about ten days ago. His illness was critical from the start, but he had been reported as holding his own for the last several days. Judge Alford was 59 years of age.

            Mitchell Cary Alford was born in Fayette County, Kentucky, July 10, 1855. At an early age he entered Kentucky University and was graduated from that institution in the class of 1877. In the following year he took up the study of law. In 1879, after two years’ study in the law department of the Kentucky University, he graduated with high honors.

            He immediately commenced the practice of law forming a partnership with Z.F. Smith, a college mate, under the firm name of Alford & Smith, which existed for seven or eight years, and was terminated by the death of Mr. Smith. Mr. Alford then became associated with Judge Matt Walton, with whom he practiced for five or six years when this partnership was dissolved. Since that time Mr. Alford has been engaged in business alone.

 

JUDGE OF RECORDER’S COURT

 

            About two years after his admission to the bar he was appointed Master Commissioner of the Fayette Circuit Court and held that office for four years. The next office he held was that of Judge of the Record’s Court, now the Police Court, of the city of Lexington, to which he was elected and served a full term of two years. He was re-elected to the same office but resigned to make the race for State Senator in the Lexington district. He was elected to this office and served the full term of four years, taking an active part in that body, of which he was the youngest member.

            In the first session of his term Judge Alford served as chairman of the Committee on Appropriations, and in the second session was Chairman of the Committee on Railroads.

            While a member of the Senate Judge Alford’s popularity became so general throughout the State that in the Democratic State convention in 1891 he was nominated without opposition, for the office of Lieutenant Governor on the ticket with John Young Brown and was elected.

            For several years he was chairman of the State Democratic Committee, being succeeded in that place by General John B. Castleman, of Louisville.

 

PRESIDENT OF STATE LEAGUE

 

            He was president of the State League of Democratic Clubs, composed of some 400 organizations throughout the State, which was a high honor and the best evidence that the Democratic party of Kentucky recognized and appreciated his ability as an organizer and campaigner.

            Governor Alford was a “Sound Money” Democrat and was one of the several candidates for the office of Governor to succeed Mr. Brown. His defeat in the convention was due to political conditions rather than to the lack of willing supporters. Had he received the nomination he probably would have been elected by the usual Democratic majority.

            Aside from his successful career in politics, he was identified with various extensive business enterprises. He was one of the promoters and organizers of the First National Bank in Middlesboro, and at the first meeting of its board of directors was elected president of that corporation. Shortly afterwards he sold his entire stock in the bank and resigned the presidency. During the “boom” days of Middlesboro he was president of several important land companies of the “mountain city.” He was also one of the stockholders and for a time was treasurer of the Phoenix Hotel Company of Lexington, and was the owner of other valuable property.

            Judge Alford is survived by a sister, Mrs. Alice McConathy, of Lexington, and four nieces, Misses Margaret, Carey and Louise McConathy, of this city, and Mrs. Charles L. Orr, of Louisville. Asa McConathy, a nephew, who is connected with the Lewin Cigar Company, also survives him.

            The funeral arrangements have not been completed but will be announced later.

MANY ATTEND BURIAL OF JUDGE M.C. ALFORD

 

            Funeral services for Judge Mitchell Cary Alford, lieutenant-governor with John Young Brown, were held at the family residence, 151 East High Street, yesterday afternoon at 2 o’clock. A large concourse of friends and relatives were present. The Rev. Edward J. Caswell, assistant pastor of the First Baptist Church, conducted the services….

            Resolutions were passed by the members of the Fayette Bar yesterday morning in which the career of Judge Alford was sketched and his loss to his city and State deplored….

            The resolutions adopted follow:

            “Mitchell Cary Alford was born on his father’s farm about two miles from the village of East Hickman, Fayette County, Kentucky, on the 10th day of July, 1855. His father was Cary F. Alford, a leading farmer, and for many years a member of the Fiscal Court of Fayette County, then known as the Court of Claims. His mother was Margaret Mitchell Alford, a gracious and much beloved lady. He entered Kentucky University and was graduated from the College of Arts and Sciences in June, 1877. The next collegiate year he took up the study of law and in 1879 was graduated from the Law College of the same institution. He took high rank in all of his classes and was greatly admired and respected both by the faculty and his class-mates. His graduating speech … was one of the best delivered in years…. [The paragraphs that follow repeat details of his career provided in his obituary and include praise for his accomplishments and character.]

            “Resolved: That a copy of these resolutions be presented to the Judge of the Fayette Circuit Court with the request that they be spread upon te records of the Court and the Clerk be directed to send a certified copy of the same to the family of the deceased.

“W.P. Kimball,

“D.G. Falconer,

“John T. Shelby,

“J.H. Mulligan,

“Mat. Walton.

            Mrs. Myrtle Alford Rash, 53, wife of M.E. Rash, North Middletown, died at her residence at 12:15 a. m. today of a paralytic stroke.

AAFA NOTES: See the obituaries of her father, Granville Alford; and half-siblings Alma Alford Robinson, Granville Lewis Alford, and William P. Alford in this compilation. We included the obituary of her brother Onias Arthur Alford in Indiana Obituaries.

            There is a question regarding her birth date, and consequently the name of her mother. Myrtle’s death certificate and her gravestone list her birth year as 1883, and her obituary says she was age 53. Her death certificate and her obituary list her mother as Louise. However, her father’s first wife, Louise, died in 1881 according to a Bible record. That same Bible record lists Myrtle Alford’s birthdate as 20 Oct 1878, but she is not on the 1880 census. Her father married his second wife, Sarah, in 1882. Either Myrtle's 1878 birthdate in the Bible record and on the 1900 census is incorrect, or the 1883 birthdate in other records is incorrect.

            From Kentucky, County Marriages, 1797-1954 (FamilySearch.org): Granville Alfred married Louisa Jane Hendren on 2 Dec 1869 in Washington Co., KY. In the record, under “Place of Marriage”, it says “Sidney Hendren,” and it appears that the bride’s father was listed in this column throughout.

            In 1880, the family is living in Salvisa, Mercer Co., KY: Granville Alford 30; his wife Louisa 29; their daughters Emma 7 and Sallie 2/12; Granville’s father Peyton H. Alford 72; and Granville’s nephew Homer Alford 14. All were born in KY.

AAFA NOTES: SSDI records show that Nola Alford (SS# issued in KY) was born 6 May 1899 and died _____ Feb 1987, last residence Barbourville, Knox Co., KY.

            From Tennessee State Marriages, 1780–2002 (Ancestry): Nola Bays married Charley Fannon on 19 Sept 1915 in Claiborne Co., TN.

            Nola shot her first husband in 1943:

MINE OPERATOR NEAR BARBOURVILLE SLAIN; WIFE HELD

 

BARBOURVILLE, Ky., May 7—Charles Fannon, 48, operator of a truck mine on Indiana Creek near here, was fatally shot early today.

            His wife, Nola, was arrested and charged with the shooting. County Attorney Sampson Knuckles said Mrs. Fannon admitted firing the fatal shot because she “was driven to it.”

 

            She was acquitted:

 

THE COURIER-JOURNAL

Louisville, Jefferson Co., KY—Friday, 19 November 1944

 

            A jury in Bell Circuit Court acquitted Mrs. Nola Fannon of the murder of her husband, Charles Fannon, in Knox County May 7, 1943. At her first trial in Knox Circuit Court, Mrs. Fannon was given a 21-year sentence; however the Court of Appeals ordered a new trial and a change of venue. Mrs. Fannon, the mother of eight children, testified she was temporarily insane over the fact she believed her husband had been unfaithful and that she didn't know whether or not she had shot him.

 

THE COURIER-JOURNAL

Louisville, Jefferson Co., KY—Saturday, 20 November 1944

 

FRANKFORT, Ky., Nov. 19—Declaring Mrs. Nola Fannon was not allowed to furnish sufficient evidence to prove she was "emotionally insane," the Court of Appeals today set aside a twenty-one-year sentence given her in Knox County on conviction of shooting and killing her husband.

            The opinion said she married Charles Fannon when she was 14, bore him eight children and that after thirty years of married life he "took up adulterous relations with a young woman and pitilessly destroyed his home." It added he "boasted" of his affair and showed "his contempt and scorn" for his wife.

            Her only defense, the opinion said, was "emotional insanity" at the time of the killing last May 7.

            The case was tried by a jury from Laurel County after denial of a motion by the Commonwealth for a change of venue on claims that public sentiment was such that the State could not get an impartial trial in Knox.

LEXINGTON HERALD

Lexington, Fayette Co., KY—28 September 1905

 

            Co. O.P. Alford, aged eighty years; died at the St. Joseph’s Hospital last night after an illness lasting since Saturday of erysipelas. He contracted a cold some time last week which was at first not considered serious.

            Mr. Alford was one of the most widely known men in the South as a horse breeder and mule exporter, and at one time was one of the richest men in Fayette county. He came to Lexington about twenty five years ago from New Orleans.

            He started into the trotting horse business here, and bred some of the famous trotters of that day, such as Barney Wilkes, Judge Saulsbury and Dan Cupid. He owned at one time what is now known as Aylesford, Clifton Heights and the Chautauqua woods. His training stable and track were where Aylesford is now situated.

            In New Orleans he was known as the biggest mule dealer in that city, which was headquarters for stock traders, and one of his lines of business was the exportation of mules to Cuba. It was in the mule business that Mr. Alford acquired his wealth, and in the horse business that he was not successful.

            He made bad investments in the early nineties, and when the panic of 1897 came he was forced to make an assignment, and retired.

            Probably the best horse he bred here was Dan Cupid, which had a mark of 2:07¼, when he was sold to a New York firm several years ago. This horse was owned jointly by Mr. Alford and Col. S.P. Salter, who was engaged in the horse business here at that time. Dan Cupid was sold and taken to New York, where he went blind a month later.

            Mr. Alford was married in New Orleans, and is survived by his wife and four children, who are Smith Alford, of New York; O.P. Alford, Jr., Mrs. .J Poyntz Nelson, and Miss Audrey Alford, of this city. He was an uncle of M.C. [Mitchell Cary] Alford, of this city.

            The funeral arrangements will be announced later.

ORVILLE E. ALFORD

 

KENTUCKY POST

Covington, Kenton Co., KY—Saturday, 3 November 1990

 

ORVILLE E. ALFORD, FORMER MELBOURNE COUNCILMAN

 

            When Orville E. Alford retired as a truck driver in 1973, he never considered embarking on a leisurely life of golf and fishing.

            Instead, he began a career of community service.

            After his retirement, Alford served as Melbourne police chief for several years and as a city commissioner for 11 years.

            “He loved the jobs and serving his community here,” said Alford’s wife, Vera.

            Heart trouble forced Alford to resign from the city commission in October. Mrs. Alford believes her husband literally lost heart when he gave up his life of public service.

            Alford died of a heart attack Friday [November 2] at his home. He was 79.

            “I think that brought a lot of this on,” said Mrs. Alford. “I think he was sorry that he gave up the position of a councilman.”

            Alford, a native of Campbell County, was a truck driver for five years for New York Central of Cincinnati. He worked as a mechanic for the company the next 15 years.

            Alford drove a truck for the Miller Express Co. of Cincinnati for eight years, before retiring in 1973.

            In the mid-70s, he served as police chief.

            “He was too good a policeman to do any harm to his community,” Mrs. Alford said. “He would take people home that maybe were drunk or things like that instead of writing a ticket.

            “Everybody liked it when he was police chief. He was out every night, seven nights a week.”

            Alford first was elected to the city commission in 1979. His responsibilities as a commissioner included his areas of expertise: the police and maintenance departments.

            “He was active as far as doing things for the city,” said Mayor Maurice P. “Dutch” Hehman Jr. “He put a lot of time in he was not paid for.

            “He would help cut weeds and do everything - whatever was asked of him.”

            “He was a very well-liked man in his community,” Mrs. Alford said. “That just about puts it all into one.”

            Alford was a member of Carthage Council No. 95 of Junior Order United American Mechanics.

            Other survivors include a daughter, Maida Brossart of Melbourne, and a granddaughter, Stephanie Brossart of Melbourne.

            Services will be at 10 a.m. Monday at Alexandria Funeral Home. Visitation will be from 5 to 9 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home. The Junior Order United American Mechanics will conduct services at 7:30 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home. Burial will be in Alexandria Cemetery.

REBECCA MAE “BECKY” BOWLES ALFORD

 

KENTUCKY POST

Covington, Kenton Co., KY—Saturday, 14 October 2006

 

            Her siblings called Becky Alford the rock of the family.

            “She always made sure the family was around and got together on special holidays or birthdays,” said her younger brother, Dennis Bowles of Florence.

            “We had great times,” Bowles said. “She told us about the old days, the days we didn’t remember because we were too young.”

            Mrs. Alford, 68, of Newport, died Thursday night [October 12], just a few hours after the Newport Board of Education honored her for her 40 years of work with the Newport PTA.

            A few weeks earlier, Newport High School had made her an honorary Wildcat and given her a varsity letter.

            The Newport Firefighters PeeWee Football league recently recognized her for her 40 years of service in the concession stand and working with cheerleaders.

            In 1992, the Kentucky Department of Education named her as one of the state’s 10 outstanding school volunteers.

            “I just wanted to be involved,” she said at the time. “It makes (children) better citizens when they know their parents are supportive of them.”

            She served as PTA president for Fourth Street Elementary at least three times and served on state PTA committees.

            Because no men were available for the job, she became the leader of Cub Scout Pack 49 when her son was in Scouting. She led the troop for about 10 years, her brother said.

            “She was a special person,” he said. “She volunteered so much of her life to the community and to the children of Newport.”

            Though she spent most of her time as a volunteer and homemaker, she also held some jobs for pay, including as a teacher’s assistant and as a worker in the former American Book Co. book bindery in downtown Cincinnati.

            She fought cancer like a champ for about two years, her brother said.

            She detected a lump in her breast in the spring of 2004, but didn’t have it checked for about six months because her youngest brother, Karvel Bowles, died about the same time.

            “We had such a grieving process about that,” her brother said of Karvel’s death. “It tore us up.”

            Besides her brother, other survivors include her husband, Howard E. Alford Sr.; sons Howard E. Alford Jr. of Silver Grove, Michael C. Alford and Sean O. Alford, both of Southgate; her stepmother, Frances Bowles of West Harrison, Ind.; brothers, Clarence Bowles of Covington and Bob Bowles of Florence; sisters, Frances Cooper of Independence, Phyllis Hawkins of Newport, Julie Sandlin of Dry Ridge, and Betty Bowles of Florence; a stepbrother, Curtis Maddox of West Harrison, Ind.; 10 grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

            Services will be at noon Tuesday at Community Pentecostal Church, Independence. Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Monday at Muehlenkamp-Erschell Funeral Home, Fort Thomas. Burial will be in Evergreen Cemetery, Southgate.

            Memorials are suggested to the Becky M. Alford Memorial Fund, in care of any Citizens Bank of Northern Kentucky branch.
