Hi Hudson:In one way or another, you are probably related to most of the Alexanders and to Zaccheus Wilson, signers of MDI.I sent a prev. e-mail of partial list.
I am fairly familiar with Josiah who m. Mildred Orr.Their son, James Sample, m. Eliza Ann Russell and their dau. Louisa m. John Bryant of Jasper Co., MS.They are in Who Married Whom in Jasper Co., which I think was taken from Census'.
Another dau. of Josiah and Mildred, dau. Prudence Morrison Alexander, m. David Daniel Shelby, my uncle, the son of Dr. Evan and Susannah Polk (Alexander) Shelby.Susannah Polk Alexander was my Alexander Aunt, dau. of Benjamin and Susannah (Polk) Alexander of Mecklenburg Co., NC.
Incidentally, My Alexander aunt Susannah Polk and husband Evan Shelby had Susannah Shelby, my grandmother Shelby who m. Daniel Alexander of Mecklenburg Co., NC.Benjamin's gdaughter Susannah Shelby m. their gson Daniel Alexander.
I will have to find the MDI list and see if I can determine just who you are related to. It is an even bet that you are somehow kin to all of the Alexanders, who were common to Rev. James Andrew and Mary Maxwell Alexander.
