Oh, how I would love to help you. I have been frustrated for years in trying to find information on my Cherokee Alexanders. James Wesley Alexander was born in KY 1801/02. He married Malinda BARNES, also Native American, probably Lakota. A cousin told me the Alexanders were originally in TN however I do not know when they left for KY. Trying to search some of the Indian Lists is difficult as that far back the names were all Indian. My Alexanders never claimed to be Cherokee. Always listed themselves as white; apparently they were fair enough that they could get by. Should I run across any Alexanders in my research I will certainly let you know. I hope that you will do the same.
