SOUTH CAROLINA OBITUARIES OF ALFORDS

AND SPELLING VARIATIONS

 

 

The Alford American Family Association (AAFA) held its 2008 Annual Meeting in Columbia, South Carolina. We made a special effort to obtain obituaries of all “Alfords” who died in that state and are publishing our entire collection of South Carolina obituaries on this website.

 

This compilation will be updated periodically as we acquire new obituaries.

 

Obituaries are listed alphabetically by FIRST name. Included are people whose last name, maiden name, or married name is Alford or a spelling variation: Alfred, Alvord, Allford, Halford, Hallford, Holford, etc.

 

The name of the newspaper (or other source) and place and date of publication follow the name of the deceased. If we included the obituary in AAFA ACTION, the issue is noted.

 

AAFA has often added notes for each obituary, including Social Security Death Index (SSDI) data, relationship of the deceased to other Alfords, and lineages. Extensive research notes are not always included in the interest of making the obituaries available online. We will add to AAFA NOTES as time permits.

 

Where lineages are included (Alford unless otherwise stated), the format is: Name, year of birth, state or country of birth.

 

Obituaries of AAFA members and their spouses are also included on the AAFA Member Memorials web page and may include more information.

 

We welcome corrections and additional information. If you have an obituary from this state that is not included here, please share it with us!

 

Date posted: 10 DECEMBER 2014

PEANUT VENDOR STILL IN HOSPITAL AFTER STABBING

By David W. Macdougall

 

            A well-known peanut vendor remained in the intensive care unit of a Georgetown hospital Thursday after having suffered multiple stab wounds during a midday armed robbery Wednesday, police said.

            Alex Alford, 80, of Merriman Road was found lying in his car on Rhodes Avenue about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, Georgetown police Sgt. Alan Walters said.

            Alford was stabbed three times in the abdomen and had multiple cuts and scrapes on his head. He was taken to Georgetown Memorial Hospital, where he underwent surgery. A hospital spokeswoman said he was in serious condition Thursday night.

            The attack has shaken the community, Walters said. “He is a well-known and well-respected figure here,” he said.

            Alford sold peanuts out of his car in the parking lot of the Piggly Wiggly on Highmarket Street. “He was there almost every day,” Georgetown resident Mary Logan said. “Everyone knew him.”...

Charleston, SC—29 September 1994

 

            Eating at a Summerville fast-food restaurant Wednesday proved unlucky for a Georgetown man wanted in the stabbing and robbery of an elderly Georgetown peanut vendor last week.

            Tyson Brave, 19, was spotted by Summerville police shortly before noon at the Hardee’s restaurant on North Main Street near the entrance to Interstate 26, said Summerville police Lt. Jeff Payton....

            Brave was wanted by Georgetown police in connection with an afternoon attack on Sept. 21 in which Alex Alford, about 80, was robbed at knifepoint and wounded in his head and abdomen, said Georgetown police Capt. Dan Furr.

            Alford was able to get to his car where he was found by a state employee who called police. Alford remained in the intensive-care unit of Georgetown Memorial Hospital, but was in fair condition Wednesday, a hospital spokeswoman said. Investigators were able to interview him about his attacker, Furr said....

            Alford is a familiar figure in Georgetown, where he sells peanuts from his car in a grocery store parking lot and runs a check-cashing business. He also is known for his efforts to increase black voter registration.

            He ran unsuccessfully for Georgetown City Council in the late 1960s.

Myrtle Beach, Horry Co., SC—5 December 2012

 

CONWAY—Amanda Kay Alford, 60, of Perry Street, died Monday, December 3, 2012 at her residence.

            Mrs. Alford was born in Conway, a daughter of the late Homer Collom and Thelma Mae Johnson.

            She was preceded in death by a brother, Michael Collom.

            She was a member of Jamestown Baptist Church where she served for over 30 years as Sunday School teacher with first through third grade children. “Miss Kay, “ as she was affectionately known to so many, sewed 40+ years for practically every young lady in Conway and surrounding areas whether it was a dance costume, cheerleading outfit, prom attire, or wedding dress. She also stitched “many a dress and costume” during the 20 years that she worked for The Carolina Opry, and she prided them as extended family.

            “The next chapter” of her life as she called it started in May 2007, as she encountered cancer and led a beautiful and long battle that allowed her to share her testimony of faith with anyone who would listen. “Always seeing the glass as half full,” Kay remained gracious throughout her challenging journey. Losing her eye in 2010 allowed yet another leap of faith as she held tightly to a favorite verse that she frequently delivered to her friends and family: “Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see” Hebrews 11:1.

            Surviving are her husband, Frankie R. Alford of Conway; a son, Clayton R. Alford and wife Wendy of Richmond, VA; a daughter, Amanda A. Roof and husband Justin of Conway; four grandchildren, Amanda Gray Alford, Anna Claire Roof, Dylan Roof, and Andrew Roof; two step grandchildren Austin and Collie Rogers, and a brother, James Bryan Collom and wife Cindy of Aynor.

            Funeral services will be held 10:00 AM Friday at the First United Methodist Church with Rev. Kyle Randle, Rev. Robbin King, and Rev. Lynn Peters officiating. Entombment will follow in Hillcrest Mausoleum.

            The family will receive friends from 5-8 PM Thursday at the funeral home.

            The family extends sincere gratitude to the host of doctors and medical staff at the Medical Univeristy of South Carolina who enabled her to live many years more than the initial diagnosis. Memorials may be sent to Jamestown Baptist Church Children & Youth Ministries, 2501 9th Avenue, Conway, SC 29527.

            Mrs. Annie S. Alford, formerly of Dillon, died suddenly at the home of her daughter, Mrs. William E. Gary in Tampa, Fla. last Thursday [October 29]. Mrs. Alford was in Dillon a few weeks ago and appeared to be in such excellent health that news of her death was a great shock to her many friends and relatives in the section. The body was brought to Dillon Saturday and interment was made at the Alford cemetery following the funeral service at the home of her sister, Mrs. E.T. Elliott.

            Mrs. Alford was one of the pioneer citizens of Dillon, and resided here until a few years ago when she went to Goldsboro to stay with her daughter, Mrs. Mamie Burroughs.

            She was the widow of the late James Frierson Alford who preceded her to the grave many years ago.

            Mrs. Alford is survived by the following children; Mrs. Chas. H. Burroughs of Goldsboro, N.C.; Mrs. William E. Gary, of Tampa, Fla; Howard Alford, of Sumter; T. Brooks Alford, of Charleston; Jas. F. Alford of Dillon; W. Frank Alford and William D. Alford of Tampa. She is also survived by the following brothers and sisters: Dr. J.H. David, William J. David, Mrs. C.S. Browne and Mrs. E.T. Elliott of Dillon.

            Mrs. Alford was a life-long member of the Baptist church and lived a consistent Christian life. She was a woman of great strength of mind and character who met life’s problems with unflinching courage.

            Many friends and relatives gathered at the graveside to pay a last tribute to her memory and the large collection of floral offerings attested to the high esteem and deep affection in which she was held in her circle of friends.

            The funeral services were conducted by Rev. W.C. Allen, of the Baptist church, assisted by Rev. F.H. Hay of the Presbyterian Church.

            The following nephews acted as pallbearers, Frank, Will and Thos. David, Robert and Terrel Rogers, Harry Dixon, Augustus Alford and James Alford.

DILLON HERALD

Dillon, Dillon Co., SC—Thursday, 26 October 1911

 

            Great was the gloom cast over our neighborhood Thursday night [October 19] when the news was spread that Mrs. D.J. Alford was dead.

            Although being in declining hearth for more than a year the end came almost as a thunder bolt from a clear sky. Since her return from the hospital, about three months ago she was so bright and cheerful, even able to make short visits in the neighborhood, we hoped that she would be spared several years yet, but God willed it not so, and Thursday night, though not as well as common, she was talking with her loved ones around her bed about eight o’clock, slept for a few minutes, awoke and in a short while apparently fell asleep again and then passed into the great beyond....

            She was a woman of strong personal character, one of God’s noble women nobly planned. Since being an invalid she was a greater power for good than many in full possession of their faculties. Wherever there was need within her reach she was there in spirit if not in person. Many there are that will bless her memory for words and deeds.

            She leaves to mourn their loss a husband and eight children. Mrs. Sion Alford of Rowland; Mrs. Gus Alford, of Dillon; Mrs. Laurin McInnis, of Carolina; Messrs. Knox and Grady and Misses Emily, Jessie and Lizzie, at home; three grandchildren, several brothers and sisters....

            These people were not located on the 1860 census since they were probably slaves. The 1860 Slave Census for Darlington Co., SC, shows no Alford slave owners (slaves were not named but listed by age and sex only). A map published by Harper’s Weekly in November 1861 showed that 59% of the people in Darlington Co. were African-American.

            Based on censuses in Darlington Co. back to 1870, this is the probable lineage of Chalmers, through his mother: Chalmers 1926 SC1, Catherine 1909 SC2, William 1892 SC3, William 1865 SC4, possibly Alex 1820 SC5.

DANIEL WARREN ALFORD

 

DILLON HERALD

Dillon, Dillon Co., SC—Thursday, 25 January 1912

 

            After a ten days illness with pneumonia Mr. Daniel W. Alford passed away at his home in Dillon Monday morning [January 22] at 8’oclock. The news of Mr. Alford’s death was a great shock to his numerous friends. Although past his three score and ten, he was a familiar figure in the daily life of the community and enjoyed the friendship and companionship of both young and old. A man of fine moral character, excellent habits and sturdy constitution he continued to be active in his accustomed pursuits until long past the age at which men ordinarily drop out of the ranks of the workers. He was of a cheerful disposition, this spirit remaining with him until the last. He served gallantly throughout the four year’s struggle as a member of the First South Carolina Regiment and was bounded [wounded?] in the Battle of the Wilderness.

            Mr. Alford was the son of Jas. L. and Sallie L. Alford. He was born near Selkirk on May 22nd, 1839 and was 73 years of age.

            He is survived by a wife and four children Mrs. Phillip Osteen, Miss Nina Alford, and [apparently some text is missing because the following are siblings:] Messrs. Manton Alford of Selkirk; Neil Alford, of Marion, J.F. Alford, of Dillon, Mrs. A.P. McLean, and Miss Mary Ann Alford who live near Selkirk.

            The funeral services were held at his late residence Tuesday morning and the body was laid away at the Alford burying ground near Selkirk. In his death the town loses a good citizen and his home loses a devoted husband and affectionate father.

THE STATE

Columbia, Richland Co., SC—Sunday, 10 July 2011

 

LEXINGTON—Diane Alford Marlow, 68, died July 7, 2011 after a long fight with lung cancer. The family wishes to thank the compassionate care of Dr. Marshall, Dr. Madden and all of their respective staff members. They made her last years and especially the last week as comfortable as possible. Diane enjoyed sixteen years of marriage to her husband and loved the combined family of her two daughters and her husband’s three daughters and one son. They were all her children and she loved them equally with all her heart.

            Diane is survived by her husband, Dan Marlow; mother, Katherine Alford; sister, Debra (Nelson) Gammans; children, Wendy Waddle, Christy (Mark) Pernat, Mark Marlow, Laura Marlow, Anne (Alex) Beuhring, and Lynn (Tom) Van Tiem; grandchildren, Tyler Waddle, Kayla Marlow, Ian Swiedler, Riley Pernat, Kevin Beuhring, Ella Beuhring, Tommy Van Tiem, Evelyn Van Tiem, Joe Van Tiem, and Elodie Pernat. The grandchildren were the light and love of Diane’s life.

            Diane started her career with the state government at South Carolina Parks Recreation and Tourism, where she did double duty as a state employee and also served as the Executive Director of Keep America Beautiful of South Carolina. In that role she was very active in bringing the Adopt a Highway from Texas to South Carolina and in raising the public’s awareness of the damage litter does to our beautiful state. From PRT Diane went to the SC Department of Health and Environmental Control’s Office of Solid Waste Reduction and Recycling. She was a project manager for the office’s outreach and education programs, working closely with schools across the state on curriculum materials and setting up recycling programs as well as making countless presentations to students. In addition, she was the office’s resident expert on backyard composting, helping recycling coordinators and residents.

            Diane loved people. She was a cheerleader and she carried that enthusiasm over to her adult life. Her love of life was contagious and as cheerleading captain and homecoming queen she inspired others to enjoy and celebrate all of life’s moments. She was always ready to give an encouraging word to those in need. She participated in a number of beauty contests, including the Miss Georgia Pageant, where she was voted Miss Congeniality by her peers. She was very active in the Girl Scouts for many years. She loved children and also taught swimming for many years. She dedicated her life to be of service to this wonderful world and its people.

            Funeral services will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday, July 12, 2011 at Saxe Gotha Presbyterian Church, 5503 Sunset Blvd., Lexington, SC.

A SAD BEREAVEMENT

 

            Mr.and Mrs. J.W. Alford, of Covington, Ga., have recently come into our midst, Mr. Alford having charge of the installing of electric lights in our town. On Saturday night last their little girl, Elizabeth, who has been ill for a week or more, passed into the beyond, at the home of Mrs. Marion Jones, where the family were boarding. This dear little girl was at the interesting age, being just five years old, and was a beautiful child.

            Mr. and Mrs. Alford are left with one little boy, strangers in Edgefield, and yet having a place in the hearts of the people. Many expressions of smpathy have been heard, and though they are not known personally to many in Edgefield, they are recipients of their condolence and prayers.

Widow of Governor McLeod Dies at 87

 

DILLON [Dillon Co.]—Elizabeth Alford McLeod, 87, died Sunday in a Marion hospital.

            She was the widow of Thomas G. McLeod, governor of South Carolina from 1923–1927.

            She was a daughter of the late William McDonald Alford and Sarah Elizabeth McLean of Dillon County.

            Funeral services will be conducted at Dillon Presbyterian Church at 2 p.m. Tuesday.... Burial will be in Bethlehem Methodist Cemetery in Bishopville at 4 p.m.

            She is survived by two sons, T.G. McLeod of Spartanburg, and Yancy A.

Buchanan McMasters of Columbia; six grandchildren, Thomas Gordon McLeod McIntyre, Robert McIntyre, Ian McIntyre, Carolyn McLeod, Melinda McLeod, and Yancy McLeod Jr.; two great-grandchildren.

            As first lady, she took a great interest in landscaping the governor’s mansion. She put in a sprinkler system which enabled the growing of a lawn for the first time and planted some of the earliest azaleas in Columbia at the governor’s mansion.

            Following the death of Gov. McLeod, she made her home at The Cedars, her ancestral home in Dillon County where she carried on extensive farming operations.

            At the age of 85 she was awarded the tree farm certificate by the state forestry association.

            She was a graduate of Columbia College and a worker in the engrossing department—a forerunner of the legislative council at the State House.

            She was a member of the D.A.R. in Bishopville, where her married life was spent until her husband was elected governor.

AAFA NOTES: SSDI records show that Eugene Alford (SS# issued in SC) was born 5 May 1907.

            See the obituaries of his wife, Daisy Elizabeth Burr Alford; children Ernestine Alford, Lorraine Alford Tart, Elizabeth Alford Langdon, and Major Alford; and siblings Elwood Alford and Leila Alford in this compilation.

            There is some confusion regarding this family. The four siblings whose obituaries or obituary extracts are in this compilation name their parents as follows:

 

                  Sibling                         Birth year        Named parents

                  Eugene Alford            1907                Stella Alford

                  Dotha Cox Lundy       1909                Ander Cox and Stella Alford Cox

                   (see below)

                  Leila Alford                1915                Andrew and Stella Cox Alford

                  Elwood Alford           1917                Stella Alford Cox

 

            It appears that Stella Alford married Andrew Cox, who probably abandoned the family. At least 3 of the children used their mother’s maiden name, but Stella is buried as Stella Alford Cox (see the obituary of her daughter Leila Alford).

HARRIS ALFORD

 

THE STATE

Columbia, Richland Co., SC—10 March 1906

 

HARRIS ALFORD’S LIFE TAKEN BY OSCAR BROOKS IN A FAMILY QUARREL

 

BROWNSVILLE, March 9—Coroner McColl held the inquest here Wednesday over the body of Harris Alford, who was killed by having an axe driven to the handle into his stomach by his brother-in-law, Oscar Brooks.

            He [Oscar] twice married Alford’s sisters. His first wife left a daughter, now about 12 years old, who has been living with her grandfather. Brooks went and stole the girl away, and Alford went to his house to get her back. Brooks forbade his going into the yard, but he went anyhow. He walked across the yard to the pump, where some other me were standing and drank some water from the pump. As he raised up and turned to face Brooks, the latter swung an axe, as if her were cutting down a tree and struck Alford across the stomach, just below the heart, with fatal result.

            Brooks was arrested and is in jail at Bennettsville. He was an obnoxious man in the community, while Alford is said to have been quiet and law-abiding. They were both Croatans [a Native American tribe].

 

AAFA NOTES: The 1900 census for Brownsville, Marlboro Co., SC, lists the family of Harris Alford, born Feb 1845 in SC. His granddaughter living with them is Laura E. Brooks, age 6 born Apr 1894 in SC. They are enumerated as Black.

            It seems that Laura Brooks was the niece of Harris Alford, not the granddaughter. However, she is named as granddaughter in both the obituary and on the census. It is possible that Oscar Brooks was his son-in-law who married two daughters of Harris, which would make Laura his granddaughter.

            From 1870 to 1920, this African-American family was enumerated on censuses in Society Hill, Darlington Co., SC.

            They were not located on the 1860 census since they were probably slaves. The 1860 Slave Census for Darlington Co., SC, shows no Alford slave owners (slaves were not named but listed by age and sex only).

JACOB ALFORD

 

NEWS AND COURIER

Charleston, Charleston Co., SC—Wednesday, 29 July 1914

 

BLENHEIM, July 29—News has reached here of the death at Clio of Mr. Jacob Alford, former postmaster here and long a most highly esteemed citizen of this community. Mr. Alford had been in feeble health for a long while, and while his death was not altogether unexpected, it was nevertheless, a great shock to his relatives and host of friends. He was about 75 years of age. He was a member of the Parnassus M.E. Church, and the interment was at the Parnassus Cemetery at 10 o’clock this morning, the funeral services being conducted by his pastor, the Rev. J.S. Beasley.

            Modest, gentle and unassuming, Mr. Alford lived a life of fidelity and consecration, setting a noble example to the youth of the land. And he had in many ways greatly endeared himself to a host of friends, who mourn his passing. A gentleman of the “old school,” unhappily growing less and less as the years pass, has gone to his reward.

DILLON HERALD

Dillon, Dillon Co., SC—Thursday, 7 March 1912

 

            Dillon was shocked Friday morning [March 1] when it was learned that Mr. J.F. Alford was dead. The day previous Mr. Alford was on the streets and appeared to be enjoying his usual health. Friday morning he came down town as usual but was feeling unwell. He went to the drug store and after taking some medicine returned to his home. Shortly; after entering the house he was taken desperately ill with acute indigestion and expired in a few minutes.

            Mr. Alford was one of the pioneers of Dillon. He was born near Old Selkirk, 8 miles west of Dillon but spent a good portion of his life near Clio where he was engaged in farming. After giving up his farm he moved to Dillon where he continued to reside until his death last Friday.

            In early life he was married to Miss Annie David, of Bennettsville and from this union were born several sons and daughters by whom he is survived. Messrs Howard, James, Brooks, and William Alford, Miss Annie Alford and Mrs. Charles Burroughs. His surviving brothers and sisters are Miss Mary Ann Alford of Selkirk, Mrs. McLean, of McColl and Messrs Manton and Neil Alford.

            About two weeks ago Mr. Alford was preceded to the grave by his brother, Mr. Daniel Alford, and the loss of two brothers in the family within such short period of time makes his passing peculiarly sad. Having long since given up the active pursuits of life Mr. Alford spent his latter years quietly and contentedly, although up until the last he manifested deep interesting the affairs of his community. He was a man of few words, but strong convictions, and will be missed by his fellow citizens. His body was laid away in the family plot at the Alford burying ground near Selkirk Saturday morning.

He was in town only a few minutes before his death and was apparently in good health. He was a man of few words, but in his quiet manner had won the esteem of many friends. The larger part of his life was spent on the farm near Clio, it was near Old Selkirk that he was born and was one of a large family. About 10 years ago he moved to Dillon. In his early life he was married to Miss Annie David of Bennettsville, and they have raised a large family.

            He is survived by his wife, four boys and two girls, Howard, Jimmie, Brooks, William, Annie and Mrs. Charles H. Burroughs. Also he is survived by two brothers and two sisters, Manton and Neill, and Miss Mary Ann and Mrs. Doster McLean of McColl.

CONWAY FARMER SHOT TO DEATH

 

CONWAY, S.C. May 21—Joe Alford, 44-year-old farmer, was fatally shot at his home near Aynor late last night.

            He had been seated on the porch with two friends when a shot rang out. Rushing to the door, Mrs. Alford said she saw her husband throw a pistol away before collapsing. The two friends were leaving and were said not to have witnessed the shooting.

            An inquest was set for Wednesday.

            The death date on his gravestone, 16 May 1934, is incorrect. His death certificate [SC Deaths] says he died 27 May 1934, consistent with the May 28 newspaper article.

            From SC Deaths: Joe Alford was the son of Sam Alford and _____ Roberts. His mother’s first name looks like Coots, possibly a nickname. Based on this, he is probably the son of Samuel P. Alford and Ellen Frances Roberts. However, he is not listed as a child with the family in any census. See AAFA’s Published Genealogies, #2.

            On Joe Alfred’s 1917 WWI Draft Registration Card (Ancestry.com), he is age 26, a self-employed farmer living in Jordanville, Horry Co., SC. He was born 16 Oct 1890 in Jordanville and is married with 2 children. He signed with his mark.
