I am looking for any information/documentation someone may have on a William Lowery Alexander.Here is the little that I already know. . . .
While some published family histories state that he was born in 1771, 1775 seems to be the more accurate date -- both based upon the marriage date of his apparent parents and the inscription reported to be on his gravemarker.He was born in or near Shippensburg (sp?), PA.
Most if not all of his adult life was spent in Burke Co., NC where he married a Sophia Erwin (Oct. 30, 1786 - Dec. 21, 1874) on or around June 7, 1808.It appears that he died on or around August 26, 1850.While his will was probated in Burke Co., I have seen postings several years ago stating that he is buried in Gilmer Co., GA -- some distance away.
Any help would be appreciated.Also, it would be interesting to know if anyone else is actively looking at this fellow!
