    Banks Funeral home and the Women’s Club were also built by Alford descendants. My grandmother was Mattie Alford Gulley and she inherited the old homestead at Willingham. My mother Jeannie Gulley McLemore was born there and lived there until 1925 when a horrific fire burned the house to the ground as well as surrounding structures. “Willingham “ was the original Alford home built by my great grandfather Columbus Augustus (CA) Alford.

    Used to water ski with Ray, David and Joe on Swift Creek at Lake Blackshear. Stopped by the funeral home a few years ago to say hello, but found it was now being run by three elderly brothers. (Ha!)
