i am directly related to albert lafayette and indirectly (multiple ways) to jack. the story passed down was that these weakley co winsteads came from arkansas. the story went that they were ill (swampy area?) in arkansas and when asked where they were going, a child responded "we're going from sickly to weakley". at first, i thought the "alabama" could be a mis-read abbreviation. i have not seen any proof they were in arkansas, although a cousin states it was paragould. the alabama connection was on a "to do" list; guess i'll postpone that some more.
