The McClatchys connect to Abraham Alexander.I would have to study my files in order to trace the two.There was a connection I found from Round Top, TX, to Abraham Alexander through the McClatchys.I did not have anything in my file re the ethnicity of this group.
I show that William Hamilton McClatchy, Jr., married (Dorcas) Elizabeth "Eliza" Alexander.They had a son, Albert Alexander (A.A.) McClatchy, Sr.(1817-1873) who m. (Frances) Catherine "Frank" Cole on 18 April 1845 in Marshall Co., MS.I show 10 children for them.Among which is another Eliza McClatchy b. 10 Feb 1848 in Marshall Co., MS.The first 2 ch. shown b. Holly Springs, Marshall Co., MS, and others shown as born in Marshall Co., TN.I may have meant MS instead of TN??
Backing up a bit, I show parents of Wm. Hamilton McClatchy, Jr. as Rev. Wm. Hamilton McClatchy (1836 NC - 18 Sep 1912 AR)and his wife, Eliza Louisa Blakeway (b. 1852 AL), and 9 children.Rev.Wm.s parents:Allen (1815 NC-Aft 1851) and Mary McClatchy (10 ch).I have a lot more for these families.
In fact, I will not need look thru a group to find the connection to Abraham Alexander.Let me continue the above:
Allen McClatchy's parents were William Hamilton McClatchy, Jr. (b. 13 Jan 1785-86), and wife, Elizabeth (Dorcas)(1792 Meck. Co., NC- 20 Sep 1869 Marshall Co., MS) (d/o Abraham, Jr.) Alexander.[this looks like where I started almost, but I am just giving what I have in my file as I have it]
I show Elizabeth (Dorcas) Alexander parents as:Abraham (Abram) Alexander, Jr. (6 Mar 1762 Charlotte, NC - 11 Mar 1829 Iredell Co., NC), Esq.,and wife as Margaret Harris (23 Sep 1763 Meck.- 12 Jan 1806).They m. 6 Mar 1787 in Meck. Co., NC.Their 3 ch were Franklin, Dorcas,and Elizabeth (Dorcas).
Of course, I show Abraham Jr.s parents as Abraham and Dorcas Amelia (Wilson) Alexander.I show Margaret Harris' parents as James and Grace (Ligette/Leggett) Harris, Sr.He died 1796 in Meck. Co., NC.I show that Grace died in 1803; do not have location.Grace was the d/o Michael Leggett, Sr.
