Regena, it would appear that our great, great, Grandfathers were brothers. I am descended from Edwin Alford. I do have some slightly different dates than yours and also can add a sibling. Also descended from Jacob Alford and Frankie B. Seaborn was:
Martha Alford md. W. Stovall
Jacob and Frankie are listed on the 1790 Census in Montgomery County, Georgia.
Also, both relatives of my Surname (Daniel) and the Alfords moved to Washington Parish, LA. Apparently, the Alfords, Daniels, and possibly the Bryants all moved West at approximately the same time from NC. I would be very interested in whatever family history you have from North Carolina. I could not find Butte or Bute county. I can supply you with more detail of the Edwin Alford clan if you are interested.
