Karen, Sorry I didn't answer your post until now, I thought I had. I have a James Alexander born abt 1841 as a son of William Alexander b-abt 1799. My William Alexander b-1831,brother to this James, stayed in Monroe Co. Ohio while it seems his brothers were in Belmont Co. Ohio. His siblings were Thomas b-abt 1828(md Sarah Elizabeth King"), William b-1831(Emmaline Duffy), Jane b-1834(md John Irwin)and James b-abt 1841 that I know nothing about. I should mention that my William Alexander's b-1799 father was Thomas Alexander b-abt 1770 and he died in Belmont Co. in 1855, he had sons John b-1797, My William b-1799, Thomas b abt-1801, Robert b abt-1805, James b abt-1807, another male son b-abt 1809, all lived in Belmont Co. Ohio Only my William seemed to go to Monroe Co. Ohio. I have seen where some descendants of siblings of my William b-1799 went into West Virginia. I have had my Uncle who is an Alexander do DNA testing. I also have heard in May 2010 they are having an Alexander family reunion in North Carolina which would include all Alexanders!
