I believe that we may have posted messages to or "at" each other on the Cecil Co., MD, Alexanders, who appear to be mine; however, I'm not sure that we have communicated.
Although this post was probably in response to an earlier one and, thus, difficult to understand fully as a stand-alone document, I think that it is correct that you are descended from Joseph Lowery Alexander of Burke County, NC, through his son John P. Alexander. I would appreciate any information that you can provide on this family, and I'm willing to share the small amount that I have on them or the greater amount on the Pattons, if that will help.
I don't know whether I have any connection to Joseph Lowery; howwever, I believe that my wife's ancestor Nancy Alexander was his daughter or, possibly, much-younger sister. Nancy married Samuel Dysart in Burke County 30 March 1814, and, in 1820, Samuel and Nancy and a Joseph Alexander over 45 lived near each other. Samuel and Nancy named their first son for his father (James), and, then, named their second son (my wife's ancestor) Joseph Lowery Dysart. Samuel died in 1824, leaving Nancy with two young sons plus one infant son (assuming she didn't die in childbirth). I can't find Nancy or the children in 1830 and don't know whether that means she died or remarried or ????. None of the Burke County Dysarts appear to have unexplained additions to their families, nor, so far as I can determine, do the Alexanders.
My wife's Dysarts appear also to have ties to the Tates, Pattons, and Glasses, as do the Burke County Alexanders.
