I’m looking for the parents of George Washington Alexander (Sr) - born 1839 in N.Carolina, probably Henderson County.I checked the 1850 census, but the only George age 11 is in the household of an A.J.Hawkins.There is an Ephraim Alexander (37) with wife Cynthia (26) and children: Elizabeth (7), John (5), Maryan[sic] (1), and Mirna(?)(70) - - so this is a possibility.but couldn’t find any link at Rootsweb or LDS.
I could not find Ephraim there in 1840, but there was a David (60-70), but with no child @(0-5), and an Isaiah (or Josiah?) (30-40) with children 1male@(0-5) & 2(1male, 1fem)@(5-10).There was also a David (or Daniel?) age (70-80) with wife (60-70) and 2 males (20-30).
It appears that in 1860 my George (W) Alexander, age 21, was in the household of Charles Dunn.By 1870 he’s married to Malinda Jane Barton, still in Henderson County, NC, and starting his family which will eventually include a child G.W.Alexander (II) and grandchild G.W.Alexander (III).
