I'm looking for the Alexander family who, according to our family history, had 9 daughters and 1 son.The names I have are Hannah Alexander (married ?Huntley); Caroline Alexander (married Joseph Way); ? Alexander (married ? Wybrant); Elizabeth Alexander (married Sam Short); Melissa Alexander Stoeffler (not confident of the spelling of this surname); Thirza Alexander (married a Weir; then a Madison probably in Cincinnatti, OH) ; John Alexander (never married). Several of them lived in/near Louisville, KY, as adults; may have lived in/near Jacksonville, IL. Caroline, Melissa and maybe Hannah lived & died in Hancock & McDonough Counties, IL, approx.1840-1876. Elizabeth died circa 1850, is buried in Louisville, KY; when husb Sam died, circa 1853, he willed his home to Mary Ellen Weir, who was only about 2 years old at the time. Mary Ellen was the daughter of William Weir (Thirza's son) and Amanda Malvina Stoeffler (Melissa's daughter).Oh dear - first cousins - risky business. William Weir supposedly owned a foundry in Louisville and was quite wealthy at one time. He died in 1909. I have further info on some descendants which I would be happy to share. Am having difficulty moving backward from the 9 children.
