RE: Two Ledbetters
Alfred and Lizzie are my direct ancestors. He was my great great grandfather. I have a copy of their marriage license where his parents signed it. I found a newspaper article of Alfred jumping off the Lumber River Bridge with his ball and chain. This had been a family story, so I have always looked for documentation. It was in the Charlotte Observer! I wasn't sure if they buried his body or not, but then I saw these two Alfreds, I started to wonder especially if one did not have dates.
My grandmother told me Lizzie changed her name back to Howell after this, but I think he had left her even before then. There's a story about him leaving his wife while they were working in a field. I never knew what trouble he was in to have been in jail. So my father, grandfather, and great-grandfather were raised Howells even though they all knew they should have been Ledbetters.

Two Ledbetters
The Allen Ledbetter at Rocky Mount matches the Civil War Soldier you wrote about.
He also had a son Alfred (could be A. A. Ledbetter, also). Alfred jumped off the Lumber River Bridge in 1890 and I have been looking for his burial. I am wondering if the one at Rocky River is his son. Do you have a picture of the stone with dates?
