Jacob Alford (b. ca 1760) & Mississippi

Hello -- I'd like to extend my knowledge of my Alford ancestors if possible. Here is what I know (none of this is particularly well researched):

1. Jacob ALFORD
b. ca 1760 in ???
m(1). to Elizabeth BRYANT (1765-c1793)
m(2). to Martha B. "Frankie" SEABORN (?-?)
d. ??? in ???

Known children of Jacob ALFORD and Elizabeth BRYANT:

(i) Needham J. ALFORD (1789-1869) m. Martha WADDELL
(ii) Sarah ALFORD (c1791-?) m. Rubin PIERCE
2. (iii) Edwin ALFORD (1792-1878)

2. Edwin ALFORD
b. 22 Nov 1792 in North Carolina
m. 20 Dec 1818 to Martha "Patsie" SMITH (1802-1861)
d. 10 March 1878 in Pike Co MS

Known children of Edwin ALFORD and Martha "Patsie" SMITH:

(i) Warren Jackson ALFORD (1819-?) m. Ann LEWIS
(ii) Cynthia Ann ALFORD (1820-?) m. Jesse BALL
(iii) Ira Payne ALFORD (1822-?) m. Betsey HOPE
(iv) William Harmon ALFORD (1823-?)
(v) Jane ALFORD (1825-?) m. Tyra Jennings TYNES
(vi) Lacey ALFORD (1828-?) m. James BALL
(vii) Jephthah ALFORD (1830-?) m. Fannie ROBERTS & Corinne EDWARDS
(viii) Julia Ann ALFORD (1832-?) m. John Ratliffe McELVEEN
(ix) Seaborn ALFORD (1834-?) m. Anniece BALL
(x) Julius Newton ALFORD (1838-?) m. Mary BRUMFIELD
(xi) Martha Elizabeth ALFORD (1846-?) m. J. Alex BRUMFIELD

Most of this information comes from Walter Edwin Tynes (1848-1928) in his book "My Pilgrimage", published shortly before his death. Like Walter, I am descended from Jane Alford and Tyra Jennings Tynes. I have more information on that line if anyone is interested; but I'd really like to verify and extend what I have on the Alfords.

Does anyone know this family?

Thanks -- Mark James
