Rutherford County, TN is familiar to me. My ggg grandfather, Squire Alexander, bought and sold land there between 1810 and 1837. Josiah Alexander Alexander was his father. However, he had a brother named Josiah who was a frequent business partner. They moved to Missouri in 1837 and to Greene County, Missouri in 1840. From there, the family went to Baxter County, Arkansas and then to Yell County, Arkansas.
