Dear John, Yes, it gets confusing because so many of the people with the same name lived close to one another.As for the latter names on the list, more contemporary, I am almost certain they are correct.Elizabeth Jane Mathis was my great grandmother.The familysearch.org records show that her mother was Martha Mahlia Alexander and on back as I show in my post.Yes, Elizabeth McMillan was her mother, shown married to Thomas J. Alexander. My mother grew up in Niangua, MO, Webster County, where many of these latter people lived.
My line has been verified by Sarah (Alexander) Culton who wrote a comprehensive book on the house of Alexander.She also includes the DNA results in her book.I have ordered it and will check this out when I receive it.
We are probably related somewhere along the line. Donna Nigh Jones
