Alexander was the administrator of his grandfatherWilliam White'sestate in 1803.He took over from his mother, Isabella White, who had taken it over from his father John White, who had taken over from his grandmother , Sarah White. It is inferred from the 1820 census that Alexander had a daughter born about 1815 who probably died before 1826 because she is not mentioned in her father's probate records. After Alexander's death, his widow Nancy married Joshua Hinesley in Dearborn Co., IN on 1 Feb 1827. In 1840 they were living in Center Township, Marion Co. IN (now Inianapolis).
