I'm not sure how long your Alfred lived but Elijah may have lived beyond 1913 when Death Certificates were required. If known, a death certificate should have the name of the parents and where they were born. This might help you to determine the father of Elijah. And if Alfred just happened to live beyond 1913 too that would give you another genertion. You can get a DC from the state where the person died. I believe most states have a form you can download to mail to the Bureau of Vital Statistics.
Estate records might help you locate Alfred while he was a slave. Because slaves were bought and sold even a gift to a child would usually be recorded at the county seat.
Hope this helps.
