I'm probably going to confuse you more than help you. My great great grandparents were James Madison Alexander, Sr. and Nancy A. Dyer. They were married May 23, 1826. He was born November 2, 1806 and died February 12, 1887. I know where they are buried. They had a son named Josiah who married Jane C. Petty in 1853. There were 14 children in all. Most of the children lived at one time in Hopkins and Christian County. One was my great grandfather.
