I am searching for father of Josh (JOseph) Alexander b 1808 NC.He moved to SC, is on census as Joshin 1830 Sparatanburg in the 20-30 age group and as Joseph in 1840 Spartanburg then Joseph in Hall, Cass and Bartow, buried Alexander Cemetary Bartow.In 1850, JOseph lists JF as his eldest son, Does anyone have anything on the others that might point to Joseph, eldest son JF (guessing either John or James), othr sons: Benjamin, George, Joseph, Columbus, and William, in birth order.Daughters names: Mary, Nancy B, Amanda. Does anyone have an idea of Joseph (Josh) father NC. I estimate fathersbirth date at least before 1788 (to be at least 20 when my Joseph is born)
I have gone through all 1820Alexanders Mecklenburg to find adult withmale child 10-16, and 1810 Meck. for males under 5. Here is what I have:
