Grace, we have corresponded before, and I don't have much more information than I had earlier. The only children that I am sure of for James Alexander of Rowan County NC and Spartanburg County SC are James Jr., Matthew, and William. Ebenezer may also have been a son because there is a report (unverified by me) that he and Matthew co-owned a salt mine in western KY. I carry your Thomas as a probable son because of the time and location and because Thomas is a name used in every generation of Matthew's family. James Jr. also had a son named Thomas.
