Alfreds in Russell/Wise Co. VA from 1850
Posted by: Janet Armentrout Date: February 04, 1999 at 17:47:15
  of 136

In 1849 in Letcher County, KY, Barnet Bowman married Elizabeth Alfred.

In the 1850 census for Russell County, VA: Barnet Bowman, 66; Elizabeth, 39; Matilda Alford, 13; Barnet Alford, 11; Nancy Alford, 9; Elizabeth Alford (age illegible); Mary J. Alford, 2.

In the 1860 Wise County, VA, census, in the household of Henry Adkins and Sarah Bowman Adkins were the following: Matilda Alfred, 24, house servant; Sidney Alfred, 6; and Landon Alfred 4.

By the 1870 Wise County census, Sarah Adkins had been widowed and had married James Powers. In her household was Sidney Alfred, age 15; and Landon Alfred age 14.

In the Wise County, VA, Register of Marriages: 11/22/1877, Sidney Alfred, age 22, parents unknown, married Nancy Thompson, age 21, daughter of William and Sidney Thompson.

Does anyone know anything about the Alfreds, especially Elizabeth's parents and what happened to Sidney and Landon?
