Maybe you can help me.I am related to the Alexander and King families.My Grandfather was Charles King Alexander McGaughey.
I believe it starts with a William Alexander b. 6/30/1739 d. 5/7/1828.He moved from Randolf Co.,N.C. to Green County, TN in 1796 with all of his children except Jane, Katherin and Barbera.
William m. Elizabeth KING in 1761. They had among others a child called Thomas b. 5/16/1770 who m. Martha McCall in 3/1800.Their children:
William King Alexander b. 1/12/1802 d. 4/4/1816 Robert McCall Alexander b. 2/17/1803 Elizabeth Alexander b. 8/30/1804 Marianne Alexander b. 5/22/1807 Katherine Alexandr b. 4/8/1809 Margeret Ann Alexander b. 1/19/1811 Malinda Alexander b. 1/8/1813 Thomas Alexander b. 11/27/1814
I have records that show Jane L. McGaughey m. this last Thomas in 1843.
Three McGauheys (children of major John McGaughey) married Alexanders including Jane above.But our records from bibles and reunion letters of 1917 are confusing.Any help or ideas apprciated.
