Brumfield & Alford

My great grandmother was Rose Ella (Brumfield) Brown. Through Rose & her father, Jessie Alexander Brumfield I am connected to the Brumfield family. This family also links to the Alford & Ott families. The best source for information on the Alford family is the The Alford American Family Association.

I will start here with  John Brumfield  & his father, Charles, as the furthest back in this tree that I can document at this time. I have found, on Ancestry.com's family trees, steps further back in the family history. Those trees show Charles' father as Watson Brumfield, b. c. 1720 in Virginia and his father, Moses Brumfield, b. c. 1700 in Virginia. Wives and other children are given. The only source citation given is other people's trees. One tree traces the family back to a Thomas Brumfield born 1613 in England. I would love to link those men with our family but would like to find reliable sources first: published histories, church records, a family Bible, original documents,... If you have knowledge of any of these sources please contact me. Until then we will start from here.


John Brumfield was born c 1768. John's father was Charles Brumfield. John Brumfield married Margaret Kelly. They had 13 children born in South Carolina and Louisiana. On 8 Nov 1811 Mr. John Brumfield with his wife and 11 children from York, SC were issued a passport by Georgia to travel through 'the Indian Nations to the Western Country'. They were moving to Louisiana.
