My gg grandfather was William Wallace Alexander, born July 20, 1856, died Feb.16, 1954 and buried at Sharon Presby. Church, Mecklenburg County, NC.Also buried there, is my grandfather, John H. Alexander.I'm trying to find out:
1. who were William Wallace's parents, wife, and children?
2. My grandfather (John H) once told me his father's name was Perry.I believe he lived in the western part of North Carolina.I remember he once came to visit when I was a small child bringing me a Prince Albert tobacco can full of marbles (he rolled his own cigarettes). I don't remember my Granddad talking about his family, so I know nothing other than that about his father.
Any information to assist me in filling in the blanks would be greatly appreciated.It seems the early 1800's and 1700's have been well documented, but the late 1800's and early 1900's are a little sketchy.
