I am seeking information regarding Samuel William Alexander. He was born about 1816 in Georgia.In 1851 he married Henrietta A.Beard in Morgan County GA.I could not locate the family in the 1860 census. I found them in the 1870 census living in the 114th District Hancock County, Georgia.The household consisted of Samuel, 54; Henrietta, 37; Foster (Green Foster), 13; Charles, 10; Sarah, 7; Obediah, 3; and John, 1. Samuel’s occupation is given as farmer and Foster and Charles both list their occupations as farm hands. The family's immediate neighbors are Rebecca and John Yates both 22. Rebecca is Samuel's daughter.She and John C. Yates were married 18 January 1866. Rebecca is not Henrietta's daughter as she was born prior to 1851.
I could not locate the family in the 1880 census.Perhaps Samuel and Henrietta died in the intervening years.In he 1880 census Rebecca and John Yates are residing in Sandersville, Washington Co, GA.John Alexander is living with the Tapper family a few doors down from Rebecca. 20 year old Charles is living with an uncle and aunt (Thomas Rivers) in Meriwether County and Green (spelled Grun in the Obediah (born 1866) andSarah (Sally) haven't turned up in the census.
