            A fatal accident occurred near Henderson last Friday, a young man by the name of Alex Alford, who was in the employ of the Western Union Telegraph Company, who, for the past few months have been rebuilding the telegraph line along the L.&N. between Henderson and Guthrie, while in the act of climbing a pole and when near the top fell to the ground, a distance of about twenty feet, breaking his spine at a point near the neck. He only lived about one day after the accident occurred.

            Out of a crew of fifteen men, Mr. Alford was regarded as the best climber, and his friends are at a loss to know how he came to slip and fall from so short a pole.

LEXINGTON HERALD-LEADER

Lexington, Fayette Co., KY—2 October 1913

 

            Mrs. Mary E. Boone, Elizabeth Cawby and J.W. Alford, heirs of Mrs. Alice McMee, filed suit in the Fayette Circuit Court yesterday against William McMee and Dr. David A. Crosby, asking the court to cancel a deed by which Mrs. McMee and her husband, William McMee, conveyed a tract of land … to Dr. Crosby and the deed by which Dr. Crosby conveyed the same property to Mrs. McMee’s husband.

            The petition alleges that within about three weeks after the death of Mrs. Alice McMee, her husband married again. The court is asked to set aside a mortgage for $750 which McMee and his second wife executed to Dr. Crosby. It is alleged that at the time Mrs. McMee executed the first deed Mrs. McMee could not lawfully execute a deed as her mind was impaired from excessive use of morphine. The plaintiffs asks that the property be sold and the proceeds divided among the heirs after payment costs….

CARY F. ALFORD

 

MORNING HERALD

Lexington, Fayette Co., KY—5 May 1897

 

            After a brief but severe illness, Mr. Cary F Alford died at his home near Lexington yesterday at noon. The funeral services will be conducted by Rev. Dr W.H. Felix at the home this afternoon at 4 o’clock, and the interment will be at the Lexington cemetery.

            Mr. Alford was one of four brothers who have for many years been identified in many honorable ways with Central Kentucky. The eldest, Mr. Smith Alford, died quite a while ago, leaving descendents in Woodford. Another, Mr. Richard F. Alford, who moved to Lexington from Payne’s Depot a few years ago, and went from here to live in Tennessee, where he owned property, died there last year. The remaining brother is Mr. Oliver P. Alford, of this city.

            Mr. Cary F. Alford moved to Fayette from his native county of Garrard and settled near the Jessamine line. His wife, who died about twelve years ago, was Miss Margaret Mitchell, of Jessamine county. Two children survive—Hon. Mitchell C. Alford, so well known as one of the most popular public men of our State and his sister, Mrs. McConarty, the wife of Mr. Asa McConarty.

            The death of Mr. Alford will be mourned by many who loved and admired him. He was “Uncle Cary” to all and was peculiarly a favorite with young and old. His kindness and courteousness to every one, his interest in the welfare of others than himself, his constant cheerfulness, his rare simplicity of life so distinctive of the gentry of our country, made him greatly beloved.

            In his business relations he was noted for rectitude of conduct.

            He passed away in the fulness of a long life spent in the duties of an earnest, Christian citizen.

            Survivors: a son, Louis C. Laeng Jr.; two grandchildren; and four great- grandchildren. Funeral: 11 a.m. Monday, Highlands Funeral Home, 3331 Taylorsville Road. Burial: Cave Hill Cemetery....

 

AAFA NOTES: SSDI records show that Florence Laeng (SS# issued in KY) was born 1 Sept 1893, last residence Louisville, Jefferson Co., KY.

            Florence Alford was born in Louisville, KY, the daughter of Henry Ruby Alford and Mary Mackey (Jan 9, 1858–Nov 20, 1932) who married Feb 10 1879, Jefferson Co. KY. Henry Ruby Alford was born June 28, 1857, supposedly in Stanford, Lincoln Co. KY. He died Feb. 10, 1905, in Jefferson Co. and is buried in Cave Hill Cemetery there. Florence married Louis C. Laeng, Sept. 30, 1915, Jefferson Co.

            She was enumerated with her family in Jefferson County, KY in 1910 and 1900, with her mother as the head of the family. In 1880 Mary’s husband, Henry Alford (listed as born 1858 in KY), is with the family. In 1870 the only prospect we see for Henry is living with the Edd Taylor family while he is attending school. More help is needed to determine to which Lincoln County family Henry belongs. Several of them seem to have gone to Louisville in the 1860–1870 timeframe, probably to find work during or after the Civil War.

            Mary Mackey had a twin sister who was married as Alice Mackey. The name on Mary’s marriage certificate was Macklin. Her death certificate says her parents were Frank McMackin and Anna Quinn (born in Ireland according to her brother’s death cert., born in KY according to hers—Florence gave info when Mary died; their father? Patrick Mackey gave info when her brother died. The question is whether or not Frank McMackin and Patrick Mackey are the same individual).

Wreck injuries claim life of Ludlow man

By Craig Garretson, Post staff reporter

 

            One of 10 people injured in a two-car collision in Boone County, Ky., on Tuesday has died.

            Jeremy Alford, 21, of Ludlow, died Friday at University Hospital in Cincinnati. He was critically injured when the car he was riding in collided head-on with a minivan Tuesday at 4:28 p.m. The car was trying to pass a tractor-trailer truck in a no-passing zone on U.S. 42 near Rice Pike outside Union.

            The driver of the car, Jimmy Good, 21, of Florence, is in the Boone County Jail after receiving treatment at the University of Kentucky Medical Center. He’s charged with nine counts of assault in the second degree and one count of wanton endangerment, with bail set at $100,000 cash, said Lt. Jack Banks of the Boone County Sheriff’s Department.

            Banks said Sunday that charges might be upgraded against Good today because of Alford’s death.

            Alford was a meat handler with Bluegrass Provisions in Crescent Springs. His wife, 18-year-old Cinnamon Alford, and three-month-old daughter, Savannah Alford, also were injured in the wreck; Savannah has been released from Children’s Hospital, but Mrs. Alford was in serious condition at University Hospital Sunday night, according to nursing supervisors.

            By Sunday, the other six people injured in the crash had been released from area hospitals….

Florence man indicted in fatal head-on crash

By Paul A. Long, Post staff reporter

 

            A Boone County grand jury has indicted a Florence man, saying he is responsible for killing a man and injuring eight others in a massive head-on collision last month.

            The driver, Jimmy D. Good, 21, faces charges of manslaughter, assault and wanton endangerment as the result of the wreck, which required three helicopters and six ambulances to transport the injured. It shut down U.S. 42 between Frogtown Road and Ridge Road for about two hours.

            Three days after the July 17 accident, Jeremy Alford, 21, of Ludlow, died at University Hospital in Cincinnati.

            The second-degree manslaughter charge relates to Alford’s death. Good was also indicted on eight counts of second-degree assault and one count of wanton endangerment.

            Each of the manslaughter and assault charges carries a prison term of five to 10 years. Wanton endangerment is punishable by one to five years in prison.

            The indictment says Good caused the wreck when he tried to pass a garbage truck in a no-passing zone ‘‘where oncoming traffic was not visible’’ on the two-lane portion of U.S. 42 near Rice Pike in Union.

            Both cars appeared to be traveling at or near the speed limit, police said.

            Police said Good’s 1986 Pontiac Grand Am, traveling west, collided head-on with an eastbound 1992 Plymouth Colt Vista minivan. Alford was a passenger in Good’s car.

            Five people were flown by helicopter to local hospitals; another five were taken by ambulance. Firefighters used the Jaws of Life device to cut through the wreckage to extricate the passengers, freeing all 10 in less than an hour.

Fatal wreck sends driver to jail

Judge: No mistake but criminal act

By Paul A. Long, Post staff reporter

 

            Pamela Augur held a few shards of glass in her hand as she stood before Boone Circuit Judge Jay Bamberger.

            The glass—from the car in which her son, Jeremy Alford, was killed—is shattered just like the life of her family, she told the judge….

            Tuesday, the man who admitted that he caused that wreck that killed Alford was sentenced to a year in prison. As part of a plea agreement, Jimmy D. Good also was put on probation for five years.

            “It’s not an accident,’’ Bamberger told Good of the wreck. “If it was an accident, you wouldn’t be here. It’s criminal conduct.’’

            Good, 23, of Florence—who is Alford’s brother-in-law—previously pleaded guilty to a charge of reckless homicide, five counts of felony assault, three counts of misdemeanor assault and one count of wanton endangerment.

            Good was the driver of a car that passed a garbage truck in a no-passing zone on a two-lane portion of U.S. 42 near Rice Pike in Union….

            Boone Commonwealth Attorney Linda Tally Smith said the agreement was worked out because evidence showed neither speeding nor alcohol was involved in the crash.

 

AAFA NOTES: SSDI records do not yet list his death.

A veteran of the Korean conflict, Mr. Alford served in the United States Navy from 1951 until 1955, serving aboard the USS Kennebec. He retired from Green Coal Co. as general superintendent of mines following 42 years of service. He owned a farm in Panther which ultimately became the back-9 of Panther Creek golf course. An active member of Century Christian Church, he enjoyed religious music.

            For several years Mr. Alford was active with Habitat for Humanity, being involved with the construction of a number of Habitat houses and the sponsor of one. A 60-year Mason, he was a member and Past Master of Monsarrat Lodge Number 379 at Panther. Mr. Alford was a Kentucky Colonel.

            He was also preceded in death by his sisters, Oleighla Pinkston and Ernestine Berry.

MITCHELL CARY ALFORD

 

LEXINGTON HERALD-LEADER

Lexington, Fayette Co., KY—10 December 1914

 

SHORT ILLNESS OF PNEUMONIA FATAL TO PROMINENT LEXINGTON LAWYER AND ONCE ACTIVE POLITICIAN

HEAD OF IMPORTANT SENATE COMMITTEES

NOMINATED WITHOUT OPPOSITION ON TICKET WITH JOHN YOUNG BROWN

 

            Former Lieutenant Governor Mitchell C. Alford, one of the best known men in Kentucky, died at the Good Samaritan Hospital last night at 7:45 o’clock. His death was directly due to pneumonia, with which he was attacked about ten days ago. His illness was critical from the start, but he had been reported as holding his own for the last several days. Judge Alford was 59 years of age.

            Mitchell Cary Alford was born in Fayette County, Kentucky, July 10, 1855. At an early age he entered Kentucky University and was graduated from that institution in the class of 1877. In the following year he took up the study of law. In 1879, after two years’ study in the law department of the Kentucky University, he graduated with high honors.

            He immediately commenced the practice of law forming a partnership with Z.F. Smith, a college mate, under the firm name of Alford & Smith, which existed for seven or eight years, and was terminated by the death of Mr. Smith. Mr. Alford then became associated with Judge Matt Walton, with whom he practiced for five or six years when this partnership was dissolved. Since that time Mr. Alford has been engaged in business alone.

 

Judge of Recorder’s Court

 

            About two years after his admission to the bar he was appointed Master Commissioner of the Fayette Circuit Court and held that office for four years. The next office he held was that of Judge of the Record’s Court, now the Police Court, of the city of Lexington, to which he was elected and served a full term of two years. He was re-elected to the same office but resigned to make the race for State Senator in the Lexington district. He was elected to this office and served the full term of four years, taking an active part in that body, of which he was the youngest member.

            In the first session of his term Judge Alford served as chairman of the Committee on Appropriations, and in the second session was Chairman of the Committee on Railroads.

            While a member of the Senate Judge Alford’s popularity became so general throughout the State that in the Democratic State convention in 1891 he was nominated without opposition, for the office of Lieutenant Governor on the ticket with John Young Brown and was elected.

            For several years he was chairman of the State Democratic Committee, being succeeded in that place by General John B. Castleman, of Louisville.

 

President of State League

 

            He was president of the State League of Democratic Clubs, composed of some 400 organizations throughout the State, which was a high honor and the best evidence that the Democratic party of Kentucky recognized and appreciated his ability as an organizer and campaigner.

            Governor Alford was a “Sound Money” Democrat and was one of the several candidates for the office of Governor to succeed Mr. Brown. His defeat in the convention was due to political conditions rather than to the lack of willing supporters. Had he received the nomination he probably would have been elected by the usual Democratic majority.

            Aside from his successful career in politics, he was identified with various extensive business enterprises. He was one of the promoters and organizers of the First National Bank in Middlesboro, and at the first meeting of its board of directors was elected president of that corporation. Shortly afterwards he sold his entire stock in the bank and resigned the presidency. During the “boom” days of Middlesboro he was president of several important land companies of the “mountain city.” He was also one of the stockholders and for a time was treasurer of the Phoenix Hotel Company of Lexington, and was the owner of other valuable property.

            Judge Alford is survived by a sister, Mrs. Alice McConathy, of Lexington, and four nieces, Misses Margaret, Carey and Louise McConathy, of this city, and Mrs. Charles L. Orr, of Louisville. Asa McConathy, a nephew, who is connected with the Lewin Cigar Company, also survives him.

            The funeral arrangements have not been completed but will be announced later.

MANY ATTEND BURIAL OF JUDGE M.C. ALFORD

 

            Funeral services for Judge Mitchell Cary Alford, lieutenant-governor with John Young Brown, were held at the family residence, 151 East High Street, yesterday afternoon at 2 o’clock. A large concourse of friends and relatives were present. The Rev. Edward J. Caswell, assistant pastor of the First Baptist Church, conducted the services….

Alford, a leading farmer, and for many years a member of the Fiscal Court of Fayette County, then known as the Court of Claims. His mother was Margaret Mitchell Alford, a gracious and much beloved lady. He entered Kentucky University and was graduated from the College of Arts and Sciences in June, 1877. The next collegiate year he took up the study of law and in 1879 was graduated from the Law College of the same institution. He took high rank in all of his classes and was greatly admired and respected both by the faculty and his class-mates. His graduating speech … was one of the best delivered in years…. [The paragraphs that follow repeat details of his career provided in his obituary and include praise for his accomplishments and character.]

            “Resolved: That a copy of these resolutions be presented to the Judge of the Fayette Circuit Court with the request that they be spread upon te records of the Court and the Clerk be directed to send a certified copy of the same to the family of the deceased.

“W.P. Kimball,

LEXINGTON HERALD

Lexington, Fayette Co., KY—28 September 1905

 

            Co. O.P. Alford, aged eighty years; died at the St. Joseph’s Hospital last night after an illness lasting since Saturday of erysipelas. He contracted a cold some time last week which was at first not considered serious.

            Mr. Alford was one of the most widely known men in the South as a horse breeder and mule exporter, and at one time was one of the richest men in Fayette county. He came to Lexington about twenty five years ago from New Orleans.

            He started into the trotting horse business here, and bred some of the famous trotters of that day, such as Barney Wilkes, Judge Saulsbury and Dan Cupid. He owned at one time what is now known as Aylesford, Clifton Heights and the Chautauqua woods. His training stable and track were where Aylesford is now situated.

            In New Orleans he was known as the biggest mule dealer in that city, which was headquarters for stock traders, and one of his lines of business was the exportation of mules to Cuba. It was in the mule business that Mr. Alford acquired his wealth, and in the horse business that he was not successful.

            He made bad investments in the early nineties, and when the panic of 1897 came he was forced to make an assignment, and retired.

            Probably the best horse he bred here was Dan Cupid, which had a mark of 2:07¼, when he was sold to a New York firm several years ago. This horse was owned jointly by Mr. Alford and Col. S.P. Salter, who was engaged in the horse business here at that time. Dan Cupid was sold and taken to New York, where he went blind a month later.

            Mr. Alford was married in New Orleans, and is survived by his wife and four children, who are Smith Alford, of New York; O.P. Alford, Jr., Mrs. .J Poyntz Nelson, and Miss Audrey Alford, of this city. He was an uncle of M.C. [Mitchell Cary] Alford, of this city.

            The funeral arrangements will be announced later.

ORVILLE E. ALFORD

 

KENTUCKY POST

Covington, Kenton Co., KY—Saturday, 3 November 1990

 

ORVILLE E. ALFORD, FORMER MELBOURNE COUNCILMAN

 

            When Orville E. Alford retired as a truck driver in 1973, he never considered embarking on a leisurely life of golf and fishing.

            Instead, he began a career of community service.

            After his retirement, Alford served as Melbourne police chief for several years and as a city commissioner for 11 years.

            “He loved the jobs and serving his community here,” said Alford’s wife, Vera.

            Heart trouble forced Alford to resign from the city commission in October. Mrs. Alford believes her husband literally lost heart when he gave up his life of public service.

            Alford died of a heart attack Friday [November 2] at his home. He was 79.

            “I think that brought a lot of this on,” said Mrs. Alford. “I think he was sorry that he gave up the position of a councilman.”

            Alford, a native of Campbell County, was a truck driver for five years for New York Central of Cincinnati. He worked as a mechanic for the company the next 15 years.

            Alford drove a truck for the Miller Express Co. of Cincinnati for eight years, before retiring in 1973.

            In the mid-70s, he served as police chief.

            “He was too good a policeman to do any harm to his community,” Mrs. Alford said. “He would take people home that maybe were drunk or things like that instead of writing a ticket.

            “Everybody liked it when he was police chief. He was out every night, seven nights a week.”

            Alford first was elected to the city commission in 1979. His responsibilities as a commissioner included his areas of expertise: the police and maintenance departments.

            “He was active as far as doing things for the city,” said Mayor Maurice P. “Dutch” Hehman Jr. “He put a lot of time in he was not paid for.

            “He would help cut weeds and do everything - whatever was asked of him.”

            “He was a very well-liked man in his community,” Mrs. Alford said. “That just about puts it all into one.”

            Alford was a member of Carthage Council No. 95 of Junior Order United American Mechanics.

            Other survivors include a daughter, Maida Brossart of Melbourne, and a granddaughter, Stephanie Brossart of Melbourne.

            Services will be at 10 a.m. Monday at Alexandria Funeral Home. Visitation will be from 5 to 9 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home. The Junior Order United American Mechanics will conduct services at 7:30 p.m. Sunday at the funeral home. Burial will be in Alexandria Cemetery.

REBECCA MAE “BECKY” BOWLES ALFORD

 

KENTUCKY POST

Covington, Kenton Co., KY—Saturday, 14 October 2006

 

            Her siblings called Becky Alford the rock of the family.

            “She always made sure the family was around and got together on special holidays or birthdays,” said her younger brother, Dennis Bowles of Florence.

            “We had great times,” Bowles said. “She told us about the old days, the days we didn’t remember because we were too young.”

            Mrs. Alford, 68, of Newport, died Thursday night [October 12], just a few hours after the Newport Board of Education honored her for her 40 years of work with the Newport PTA.

            A few weeks earlier, Newport High School had made her an honorary Wildcat and given her a varsity letter.

            The Newport Firefighters PeeWee Football league recently recognized her for her 40 years of service in the concession stand and working with cheerleaders.

            In 1992, the Kentucky Department of Education named her as one of the state’s 10 outstanding school volunteers.

            “I just wanted to be involved,” she said at the time. “It makes (children) better citizens when they know their parents are supportive of them.”

            She served as PTA president for Fourth Street Elementary at least three times and served on state PTA committees.

            Because no men were available for the job, she became the leader of Cub Scout Pack 49 when her son was in Scouting. She led the troop for about 10 years, her brother said.

            “She was a special person,” he said. “She volunteered so much of her life to the community and to the children of Newport.”

            Though she spent most of her time as a volunteer and homemaker, she also held some jobs for pay, including as a teacher’s assistant and as a worker in the former American Book Co. book bindery in downtown Cincinnati.

            She fought cancer like a champ for about two years, her brother said.

            She detected a lump in her breast in the spring of 2004, but didn’t have it checked for about six months because her youngest brother, Karvel Bowles, died about the same time.

            “We had such a grieving process about that,” her brother said of Karvel’s death. “It tore us up.”

            Besides her brother, other survivors include her husband, Howard E. Alford Sr.; sons Howard E. Alford Jr. of Silver Grove, Michael C. Alford and Sean O. Alford, both of Southgate; her stepmother, Frances Bowles of West Harrison, Ind.; brothers, Clarence Bowles of Covington and Bob Bowles of Florence; sisters, Frances Cooper of Independence, Phyllis Hawkins of Newport, Julie Sandlin of Dry Ridge, and Betty Bowles of Florence; a stepbrother, Curtis Maddox of West Harrison, Ind.; 10 grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

            Services will be at noon Tuesday at Community Pentecostal Church, Independence. Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Monday at Muehlenkamp-Erschell Funeral Home, Fort Thomas. Burial will be in Evergreen Cemetery, Southgate.

            Memorials are suggested to the Becky M. Alford Memorial Fund, in care of any Citizens Bank of Northern Kentucky branch.

TIPSTER OF HOLD-UP WOUNDED AS PAL SLAIN IN ROBBERY

 

ACCOMPANIES THREE BANDITS INTO POLICE TRAP AT LEXINGTON, KY., STORE

 

Lexington, Ky., March 22—A police submachine gun mounted in a department store dealt death last night to one yeggman [safecracker] and seriously wounded another who had tipped off the officers to a projected safe-cracking expedition.

            As four robbers approached the offices of J.D. Purcell Company store in the darkness, carrying crowbars and explosives, five officers awaiting them commanded them to throw up their hands. Instead the robbers opened fire, wounding Thomas Crum, the store’s night watchman, in the leg.

            The police return volley killed Virgil Alford of Winchester, Ky., and seriously wounded Russell Rose, address unknown, who had notified the officers of the projected robbery and accompanied the other three so as not to arouse their suspicions.

            The other two robbers were arrested. They gave their names as C.H. Burch, Middlesboro, Ky., and Thomas Alford, brother of the slain man. Chief of Police Ernest Thompson, who led the officers, said he believed the men responsible for several safe robberies here recently.

KILLED BY HIS STEPSON

A Kentucky Desperado Shot While Trying to Stab His Wife

 

LOUISVILLE, Ky., Feb 15—William Alford, better known as “Oyster Bill,” a notorious tough and desperado, was shot and killed at 2 o’clock this afternoon by Andy Kauffman, his 19-year-old stepson. The murder was the result of an attempt by Alford to cut his wife’s throat, and the boy only fired the fatal shot when his mother’s life was in danger. Alford and his wife had a violent quarrel, which resulted in her leaving. She did not intend to stay away, but only wanted to give him an opportunity to become sober. She went to the home of her half-brother, Charles Denzer, who keeps a saloon at 925 West Broadway. Her husband learned where she had gone, and is said to have told several persons that he intended to kill her if she did not return. Shortly before 2 o’clock this afternoon Alford entered Denzer’s saloon, where Andy Kauffman, his stepson, and Mr. Denzer were seated near the stove. “Oyster Bill” and his stepson had had some trouble before, and as soon as the half-drunken man saw young Kauffman he demanded to know where his wife was. Finding her he drew a large knife and attempted to kill her. The boy ran to her assistance, and picking up a revolver from a shelf fired.

 

AAFA NOTES: He was the eldest child of Jacob Pleasant Alford and Martha Craig Yates.
