Waterloo, Black Hawk Co., IA
Tuesday, 11 June 1912
By the death of their uncle, Enoch L Alford, which occurred at San Antonio, Tex., yesterday, Lore Alford and Dr. E.T. Alford of Waterloo, their brother Robert Alford of Raton N.M., and their sisters, Mrs. W.T. Powell, of Cedar Rapids, Mrs. Louis E. Johnson of Steelton, Pa., and Mrs. Hubert Carr of Manchester, come into possession of a fine cattle ranch containing about 500 acres and situated in the heart of the cattle country near San Antonio.
News of the death of their uncle reached the Waterloo men today and with it came the notification that Lore Alford of Waterloo had been named executor of the estate. No will was left by the deceased but some time ago he deeded the property to his nephews and nieces, retaining only a life interest in the ranch.
Mr. Alford was 82 years of age and had been in poor health, due to his advanced age, for a number of years. His wife died several years ago, leaving no children. He always resided in the south although he visited in Waterloo about thirty years ago. He never liked the north, however.
In addition to the ranch he owned other property in Texas which he left to relatives of his wife. Lore Alford, when seen today, could not place an exact value on the ranch but it is that $100 an acre would not be too large an estimate. Mr. Alford expects to go to San Antonio soon to settle up the estate as executor.
