Howdy Bills, Sorry to take so long but I've been working seven days a week. Joseph is not in the Cloyd's Creek Alexanders book. But I have him in my Alexander database. I show him born in 1776 and died in 1851 and married to Elizabeth McReynolds. I don't have any children for Joseph in my database. His father was Hezekiah Alexander born January 13, 1726/27 died July 16, 1801 in Mecklenburg County, N.C. His mother was Mary Sample, born 1735 died May 17, 1806. Hezekiah's father was James Robert Alexander, born in Somerset, Maryland and died May 31, 1779 in Somerset Co. James married Margaret Abigail McKnitt, born December 26, 1693. Note of Hezekiah : Hezekiah and brother John McNitt Alexander signed the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence. Hezekiah middle name may have been "South". He came to North Carolina in 1754 and settled ten miles north of the present city of Charlotte. He was Justice of the Court, Member of the North Carolina Congress, prominent citizen. Some have Hezekiah Alexander's birth date as January 13, 1722 in Ceceil County, Maryland and died on January 10, 1801 in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina (?).
