Bobbie, I am a descendant of Joel Baldwin Alexander, son of Ezekiel Alexander Jr. and Nancy (last name unknown). He migrated to Cherokee Co. TX. He had a brother named Rufus Lee. I will check my chart and see if I can find another Rufus Alexander.I am thinking that there as another Rufus in this line..maybe son of Steven V.?
I have traced this family back to Cecil Co. Maryland in early 1700s. Their early ancestor was James Alexander, weaver of New Munster Md. and his son David the weaver.
