According to Alford's govt. pension papers, both Alford and Mary, his wife signeed with a mark. This would indicate that they probably could not read either.

Alford according to family souces, sufferd severe pain with his leg and ankle all the rest of his life after the Civil War accident when his horse fell on him. Luther, his son and my grandfather, took him to Florida one year during the winter so that he could get relief from the cold and the pain.I do not know when the trip was made , but Alford died in May of 1910 so the trip was made in 1909 or before . I assume they traveled by train.

Per Carolyn Robison: The names of Alford's children and their ages came from Alfords Civil War Pension application. He received a pension for his service and Mary, his wife, received a widow's pension after his death.

He married Mary Davidon, May 5, 1868 in her home, Clay county Kentucky.
