A number of names written inside book, including: Larkin Epperson -
John Richard Beegle - Lucinda M. Beegle - John Alford - Elizabeth
Alford - Mary Beegle, January 15, 1834.
AAFA NOTES: According to the Bible record, Greenup Jenkins married
Mary Ellen _____ who was born March 4, 1812. WAS SHE AN ALFORD? AAFA
does not recognize this family. Several Jenkins-Alford marriages occurred
in Kentucky in the families of Jacob and Charles Alford of Mercer and
Garrard Counties. But if John and Elizabeth Alford were a couple, these
KY families don't fit. If anyone can make the connection here, please
let us know.
