Jonathan born prob. 1780's and is the son of Capt. William "Black Billy" & Margaret (Clark) Alexander of Mecklenburg Co., NC.
Know only that at one time he had orphans living with him:
Pinckney C. Elizabeth Thaddeus Rebecca Macy R.
May have been from an Alexander family, but just a guess.
His father gave him his estate in Will about Oct 1836, "if he will come home and settle down on it".His father left it in trust for him with his son, Daniel Alexander, Jonathan 's brother.Jonathan is dead by 1856 as Daniel is the only surviving son per court hearing for Daniel Alexander.
Jonathan may have married Ann Woods of Guilford Co., NC, but that is far from being proven.
Can anyone help me find this man & family? Know how I can find out about the orphans? Thanks, Mac of Cypress, TX.
