Thanks very much for your kind help. I think I've seen some of the information, but I don't think I bothered to keep it back then. It is great to have it now, all together.
I've seen the family tree for Mahala somewhere, but the poster didn't go into her descendants at all. I might have to follow up on that.
I'd like to have the most complete census records for Alfred and Mahala's parents, if you have them. At this time I don't know how far I'm going to take this family, but it seems like that much would be good to know.
