The family paper I"m referring to in this message was written sometime in the 1880"s and was read at he reunion of John B. and Barbara King Alexander's descendants.This is some of the information therein:
Mr.____ Ross of Charlotte, NC was united in marriage to Miss Jane Brown, also of Charlotte and they had children Jane Brown and Isaac (I have more info on them.)Then, this Mr. ____Ross died and his widow, Jane Brown (Ross) was married to Aaron Alexander and they had two children, one dying in infancy, and the other, John Brown Alexander, born in 1765 near Charlotte, Mecklenburg Co. NC.Both parents dying when he was quite young, he was placed under the care of his uncle, Elijah Alexander, and learned the trade of a clothes dresser under his own cousin, Daniel Alexander, son of his uncle Elijah.At the age of 20 he married Barbara King, a native of Scotland, June 8, 1786 near Charlotte, NC.They had a son, Josiah, from whom I'm descended ( He was born in 1787) along with 11 other children.Josiah married his first cousin, Elizabeth, daughter of Hugh and Mary King. They had 11 children.(Hugh King was Barbara KIng's brother.)
Returning to John Brown Alexander, after he and Barbara married, they moved to Georgia, then Tennessee, then to Illinois.(Vermillion Co.)He died in Danville Illinois sometime after 1847.I have more details if anyone is interested.Does anyone know who Aaron's father was?
