      She notes that at the time of the 1870 Van Buren County, Arkansas federal census, Alfred was living int he home of the Williams family in Liberty Township, (page 45), and listed as:
      Bost, Alfred, 20, M, W, Laborer, IL.

      On the 1880 and 1900 census enumerations, Alfred is reported as being born in North Carolina, however on the above enumeration Illinois is shown. Several of his children also report that their father was born in Illinois.

      Lynell Cordell wrote that she looked for all Bost's in Texas on the Find-a-grave website and found the following. Since they're in the same block of the same cemetery she assumes that they are Mary Jane Adams and her husband, Alfred.  Another Bost descendant/researcher Lynell had previously talked to said they were divorced, but since Alfred died so early that may not be so.

      Mary Jane Bost Birth:  1841  Death:  1941 
      Burial: City of Lubbock Cemetery  Lubbock, Lubbock County, Texas, USA
      Plot: Block 24

      Alfred Bost
