Linda: This is to inquire of info of Silas Alexander your kindred. He married 1811 Ester Graham my kindred, sister of John Graham who married 1814 to Lydia Rushing in Cannon Co, and Silas & Ester were witness listed to my 3rd g/parents wedding by Rev M R Hollis.
About 1816 Silas & Ester moved with John & Lydia to Courtland, Lawrence Co, Al where Ester died in childbirth.Silas returned to Cannon Co, and married Sophia Spangler.
I am interesting in proving John & Ester's parents. I suspect and have no proof it is Capt John Graham of Barren Fork of Trousdale, TN in Warren Co, who was a surveyor who in 1826 surveyed for Mordecai Duke his land in Cannon Co, then part of Warren Co until the county was formed. His brother Gideon Duke was chain carrier. I have learned that Mordecai's daughter Alice married your kindred James W Richardson the grandson of Silas Alexander.
My Grahams in Ala have a connection with Green Noland who married in home of my great g/f abt 1860 a Miss Isbel who was residing with her kindred a James Richardson in Lauderdale Co, Ala.
Do you know anything about Ester Graham, and where Silas lived in Cannon and Warren Co, when & where they married?I saw where Silas & Richard Graham signed some petition together. Any further info would be appreciated. Dennis
