Im trying to find information on my Alexanders from Tennessee , John Porter Alexander , Manoaha L.,any leads or connections would be wonderful, and most appreciated. Please, reply if you know of a connection with the Alexanders and Porters also because I think there might be one. Time frame is hard to say , and I am guessing, during the 1820's Johns wife was Sarah Elizabeth Cobb Hinds and she was bornin Birmingham, Alabama . I don't know where they married. I would like to know if there are any obits, Cemetery records on Alexanders there in Rutherford, County Tennessee.
Sarah was in Clark, County , Arkansas and consented to the marriage of her daughter Sallie Mahala Alexanderin 1871, and John Porter was not with her so I'm thinking he had died , and she was alone. Her daughter Sallie Mahala married M.C. Smith and they went to Texas but did not stay, they were there about 8 to 10years I think, and ended up in Indian Territory , listed on 1910 Censusa few miles from the Red River and about 3 miles from Duncan, Oklahoma in Stephens, County. Sarah Elizabeth Cobb Hinds Alexanderfollowed them and remained there until her death, I have all three Death Certificates for Marion Calloway Smith, Sallie Mahala Alexander Smith and they among quite a few other relatives and kinfolk are buried in the ''OLD'' Duncan City Cemetery in Duncan, Oklahoma, Stephens, County.
I would be happy to share what I have and looking forward to finding any of my Ancestors or Descendants of them. Thank you, LaVon Allen
