Hi Barbara:You may be looking for my line of Shelby/Alexanders.John Alexander b. 1772 d. bef. 1850 enroute to N.O. w/market goods, married Sarah "Sallie" Shelby b. 1778 d. aft. 1856, d/o Dr. Evan Shelby (Pvt) and Susannah Polk Alexander of Mecklenburg Co., NC, moved to Big Crk, Cuba, Shelby Co., TN, where she probably died.They had childrfen Moses Burton, Mary Mahala, Evan Shelby and Alfred.
I have nothing more for Alfred, but much on Mary Mahala and Moses Burton Alexander.Moses was b. 4-1-1814 and married Margaret Allen.Alfred was said in one source that he married Margaret Allen.It is doubtful unless there were two of them because Moses definitely m. Margaret Allen.Mary Mahala m. William Wilkins Duckworth and they had several children; Col. Wm. Lafayette Duckworth was famous leader of a TN Regiment.
