6.  Alford Cemetery, Linn Co., OR (online at the Linn Genealogical Society web page):
ALFORD, Thomas (b. 1802 - d. 20 NOV 1892) Held DLC [Donation Land Claim] 1301 RB Linn Co., Oregon. Married three times: - 1st to Kesia Cupp; - 2nd to Mrs. Polly Wiliams; - 3rd to Emaline Galey. Father of 19 children. (Files of John Miles & Dick Milligan)
ALFORD, Emaline (b. 1825 - d. 20 FEB 1895) (NEE GALEY) Wife of Thomas Alford. Died at age of 76 years.
I have no idea what "Held DLC 1301 RB" means, and they give no explanation; nor do they make it clear what information was on the stone and what has been added (or changed), so nothing here can be relied upon as primary data — except for the fact that Thomas and Emaline are buried there.  Emaline was born in 1825, so if she died in 1895, she was 70 years old, not 76.  Update: another researcher confirms the unreliability of information at this site.

7.  Anon.  1878.  Illustrated Historical Atlas Map of Linn & Marion Counties, Oregon.  Edgar Williams & Co., San Francisco, CA (courtesy of Alicia Roundy Houston):
…page 55, contains a lengthy biography of Thomas Alford.  This appears to be written from a personal interview or from information provided by
Thomas because it is mostly accurate.  It is this biography that documents Kesia Cupp as a daughter of Jacob Cupp, "a prominent man of his time".
