Ok I don't know if this will help, But Alford, Mary, Polly seem to be
"family names" in my Daniel line. I don't know Here the name startedm But I
have a Alford and a Andrew Alford in VanZadt Co Texas, Their Father Thomas
Wallace Daniel (1846 - 1904) came from Johnson Co Ky. His father Andrew
Daniel (1814 - 1893) was Born in Floyd Co Ky.
Now they all moved to VanZandt Co Texas. Now I haven't seen the name in the
family before Thomas, so I was thinking that it might be one of the Wives
relatives or father name. Alot of times they would name the first son and
second sons after a father or uncle. But I will ask the person whos line
these names belong to if she knows anything about the name and where it came
from. But it was about the 1850s that the families moved to Texas. I do
believe that some of them were in the KY/Ill boarder for a while. I found a
few Daniel people up there that I haven't had time to follow up, but they
look like they maybe relatives
you might try going to the US genweb archives and search on the first name.
You might find out something that will give you a clue - along with alot of
other useless information on Alfords :). But if you are stuck it is worth
