(Note: I had little information on Alford Ullom's birth family, other than his parent’s names, Lorenzo Dow and Hannah (EMRICH) ULLOM, until a 2nd cousin sent me a scanned newspaper clipping of her obituary. I love it when we all get together and share bits of information that we each have. It’s like putting together a giant jigsaw puzzle, fitting in one piece at a time and wondering at the lovely picture of our kin when they finally reveal themselves. )
