I am interested because Robert Jackson Alexander was my maternal great-great-grandfather. My great grandfather was Allen Francis Alexander.My grandfather was his only child, Robert Patton Alexander. Robert Patton Alexander had 6 children: John Francis; Martha Jane; August Mary Naomi; Wilma Edith and William Robert (twins); and Mozella Lurene.My mother is Martha Jane.John had no male children and William died without issue.Im this branch of the Alexander line, the name at least ends.
It is the predecessors of Robert Jackson in whom I am most interested.The family seems to have settled in the Salisbury District of Rowan County, NC, which currently can be part of Rowan, Iredell or Catawba Counties.Robert and Charity were married in Iredell County according to a marriage bond I have seen.
Anything you have with respect to the Alexanders pre 1850 would be helpful.I am trying to trace them back to Scotland.
