I am replying to your message because of all your William Alexanders. I have several also.The one giving me the most trouble is William Alexander m. Elizabeth Hawse in Fauquier Co., VA 1831. His father's name was John Alexander.There was a letter so that he could marry, he was several months from the age of consent.Now, the family showsup in Loudoun Co., VA in the 1860 census, one of his children being my great-grandfather Edgar May Alexander m. Ella V. Thayer.Oldest son Basil born according to different documents either in Fauquier or Pr. Wm. Cos., VA.A "cousin" or cousins from Clarke Co., VA rode with Mosby's Rangers. Their names John Alexander and Samuel Alexander.I have been looking both counties but cannot get farther than Father John.
