"The Roanoke Leader" - September 23, 1925:

IN MEMORY OF MRS. S.W. ALFORD

On August 23, 1925, the spirit of Mrs. Lina Jane Alford, wife of Mr. S.W. Alford of Welsh, Alabama, was wafted to the mansion prepared for her by her Savior. Mrs. Alford was seventy-two years and three months old. She was the
mother of two sons and six daughters, two of the daughters having been called some years ago to their heavenly home. She leaves many relatives and a host of friends to mourn her death. Her gentle, kindly disposition toward all,
endeared her much to her neighbors. and her tender
affection for husband and children makes her departure a sad loss, indeed, to them. She had been a faithful member of the M.E. Church, South, about fifty years, during which
time the sincerity of her love for the Master and faith in the Bible was proven by her daily christian walk. Her gentle patience during the afflictions she suffered for more than two years before she passed away is another evidence of a beautiful, sincere, christian character. Surely the loving Savior has rewarded her good works and constant faith with the sweetest peace and happiness in a home of endless joys.

- Written by a nephew, Geo. H. Burkes.
