April 20, 1983 Responding to an inquiry/introduction sent
to him by Gil Alford, then publishing in About Alfords. Wick addresses the letter to "Dear
Cousins" because at the time Gil was publishing three different quarterly newsletters: Newkirk
Notes, Chapman Chatter, and About Alfords. The former two were families of his
wife, Mary, and they were working as "Gil and Mary Alford."
November 8, 1984. Apologies for his delay in submitting
family information. CLICK to see "Family Data", the family information
sheet he enclosed.
March 5, 1985. Several interesting matters including an
invitation to Gil to speak at Wick's forthcoming family reunion.
March 10, 1985. Gil's response to the above letter with a
tentative acceptance to speak.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS IS A DRAFT AND IT WAS NOT MARKED AS SUCH. IN HIS "EARLY DAYS" GIL DID NOT GO
TO EXPENSE OF MAKING A FINAL COPY FOR THE FILE - ASSUMING THE DRAFT WOULD SUFFICE. HE APPARENTLY
HAD SOME KIND OF PRINTER PROBLEM TOO.
March 13, 1985. Gil's follow-up to the above letter reneging
on the offer to speak. Letter mentions a list of 371 GA Alfords.
November 23, 1986 General comments about Alford ancestry,
etc, but mainly to send the next letter.
Nov 12, 1986 Rogers letter. Very informative letter
about NC Alfords, but with no documentation or sources. Red notations in left margin and other
similar notations are Wicks. Gil made numerous notations on page 8. Whited out on other pages are
mark-ups made by Gil, primarily in relationship to other information in the collection.
AAFA WAS CREATED JANUARY 1987
Nov 18, 1987, About getting in touch with folks to
do the Alford emblem or AAFA Logo.
Nov 21, 1987. Wick's response to the above which
expected him, as president, to proceed in the leadership on the emblem or logo. Wick passed action
back to Gil who annotated note to vice president Weston Adams.
Dec 17, 1987. A five page run down on all AAFA activity
in an effort to get the President more involved.
