Any Howards from Mayfield KY?

My great grandfather is my brick wall. Alfred Clifton/Christian Howard. Supposedly born in KY but I think he came out from under a rock. Wife was Ella Ophelia Clay. They married in Telfair County GA and had seven children,  but he supposedly had another family in KY before marrying her.

This is the only info I have found. Somewhere is a newspaper clipping, a family member had it, showing him as being from Lexington, KY. He is my very solid brick wall.
