He had long been a member of the Manhattan Club of New York and of the Riding and Driving Club, the Crescent Athletic Club, and the Montauk Club, of Brooklyn, and when in health was a very active member of the Sayville Golf Club.

His wife, Marie L. Alford, died eight years ago.

He is survived by one daughter, Mrs. Wilson Stephenson, of Brooklyn, and three sons, Kenneth W. Alford, of Brooklyn, Donald C. Alford, of Greenwich, Conn., and William R. Alford, of Port Washington.

Funeral services were held at Greenwood Cemetery, where the interment took place at three o’clock on Wednesday afternoon, August 26th, and the remains were laid at rest beside his wife, and his son. Thomas K. Alford, who died at his home adjoining that of his father, on April 29th, last.
