Mark, Your Hezekiah was s/o James, son of Joseph "The Tanner" Alexander and Emmigrant of this line. This you probably know. The John McKnitt being discussed was a younger brother of your Hezekiah. John McKnitt served as secretary of the Mecklenburg Convention that was responsible for drafting the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence. James had fifteen children by two wives. Do you need their names?
