Alford-910 Tristam Burgess Alford b. Feb 1833 North Carolina d. 26 Jun 1900
Halford-571 Tristan Burgess (Halford) Alford 1833 in North Carolina d. 26 Jun 1900 in Henderson, Tennessee
each married an Emily H. Clendennin in 21 Feb 1856 in Maury County, Tennessee
One has 4 children, the other has 3 children. And 3 are the same names b. 1+/- from the other.
I've been involved with the American Alford Family Association (charter member 0189) to know Alford and Halford and other spellings have been interchanged repeatedly thru out time.
The issue is, I know we merge to the lowest number. but what to do in this case?? Alford-571 is already taken. Do we go with surname Alford or Halford.
