Welcome to Alfred ...
Although we found mention of Alfred during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Alfred was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than a locale or some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it was a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists..
While we are confident that Alfred was located in Lincoln County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Alfred to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Alfred - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Alfred, please Contact Us.
