About Texana Ora Collins

From Find a Grave:

Her name is sometimes spelled 'Texana.' She was married twice, the second time, as a widow, to the widower George Benton Alford, whose first wife was Charlotte A. Olive. Charlotte and George were married April 28, 1875, and Green Haywood Alford and Mrs. Mattie V. Alford, of Holly Springs, were born of this union. Texana was a stepmother to the Alford children. Their home was the Leslie House, which is in Holly Springs at what is now 100 Avent Ferry Rd. 'Col.' was an honorary title of Mr. Alford's related to service in the Civil War. The Cape Fear & Northern Railroad was chartered in 1892 by Mr. Alford.

Note from Doug Markham: I have a few old store receipts from Archie Leslie, for whom the house is named.
