    • Research Question:

      Did John raise the children of James Bailey and Elizabeth Alford:

      namely is Alford St. John actually Alford Bailey raised as a St. John? b. about 1821. Could the unknown children in these census records found for John be Bailey children raised as St. Johns?

      His youngest daughter marries a James Alford Bailey. Probably the son/grandson of James Bailey and Elizabeth Alford.
