AAFA NOTES:This is a Daviess County, KY, family that started with Joseph Alford who first appeared there in 1860
although he and wife Mary/Polly were born in KY and were enumerated in Marion County in 1850. In 1860 they
had five children but the eldest sons present in 1850 (William H., 22, and John H. 19, are missing). The rest
of the family is missing from the 1870 census but this is probably where Joseph and Glarvina married so they
probably were just missed or can be found under an unusual spelling variation. WHO WAS THIS JOSEPH'S PARENTS?
He was born in Marion Co. KY (c1814) according to vital statistics (listed under son John's birth) microfilm
for Daviess County. Both Joseph (known as Clayton) and John Kimbley (known as Kimbley) lived and died in Daviess
County. Joseph Clayton (went by Clay) married second to Lula Mae Foster by 1916.
