AAFA NOTES: SSDI
records confirm the death date of Elizabeth A. Williams (SS# issued in MS), but
her birth date is listed as 25 December 1917, the date that she provided AAFA
and that is on her gravestone.
We included the obituaries of her mother, Ivy
Belle Edington Terry Alford; and half-sister Pearl Nix “Nixie” Alford
Allbritton in Mississippi Obituaries.
Elizabeth said her full name is Nancy Elizabeth

of her mother’s mother.
She was the daughter of Julius Whitford Alford
and his second wife, Ivy Belle Edington Terry Alford.
