I am researching Alexanders also.I can trace my line only back to Delaware David Alexander b. 1796, one of his sons Nicholas C. Alexander b. 1830 in Ohio and later brought his family to Wayne Co. IL.Apparently Nicholas C.was somehow related to my Great Grandmother Elmira Alexander b. 1852 Wayne Co. IL and her brother Calvin C. Alexander b. OH 1845.I think N.C. could be an Uncle as the parents of my Alexanders died young leaving at least Elmira and Calvin C.. Elmira was in the household of Nicholas C. Alexander and Jane Austin according to the Wayne Co. 1870 census.At that time she would have been 18.There is no mention of Calvin, but I understand he went West to Co. where he died in 1913.
I would appreciate any information about this line of the family.Thank you. Elaine Suhre
