thank you so much for your reply. Alfred's siblings were: James W. born 1831, Sara A.1835, Wlliam F. 1837, Robert 1838, John Franklin 1843, D. 1846,Henry Clay 1849, James 1854. They were in District 28, Benton Al. in 1840, Beat three, Parker Texas in 1860, Tumbleston, Scott Arkansas in 1870. We can find nothing on James and Jane prior to 1840. Any help is greatly appreciated.
