James Sidney Alexander m. Nancy Elizabeth MCDANIEL, 29 March 1851 at Harrison Co, TX
-- I would love to get the wife's name straightened out!
Their children as best I can figure out:
William P. ALEXANDER born aft. 1851 Nancy Tranquila ALEXANDER born aft. 1851 John Wesley ALEXANDER born aft. 1851 Mary Elizabeth ALEXANDER born 1854 at Harrison Co, TX
Daughter Mary Elizabeth according to one source was 'full-blooded Indian' but I have not been able to substantiate this. I would not be surprised if she turned out to be part Indian.
Married to (Lt) Allen Black 'A.B.' MCCLATCHEY, 29 August 1872
-- I have a great deal of information on his family and would be happy to swap.
Birdie MCCLATCHEY born ca. 1872 at Greenville, Hunt Co, TX Ona MCCLATCHEY born 28 December 1872 Sidney Patton MCCLATCHEY born 1875 at TX Mamye MCCLATCHEY born 2 February 1877 James Oscar MCCLATCHEY born 27 August 1879 Ira O. MCCLATCHEY born 8 November 1881 Grace MCCLATCHEY born 16 November 1889 Bess Black MCCLATCHEY born 19 February 1890 at TX ? Applied to be guardian of minor children 4 December 1905 at Hunt Co, TX She died 5 December 1940 at Hunt Co, TX
Now here's my theory: I'm guessing that this James Sidney Alexander is the Sidney Alexander that is the son of Mary McClatchey and David Alexander, originally of Iredell Co, NC, but later of Bradley Co, TN.
Mary Elizabeth Alexander's husband Allen Black McClatchey would be a second cousin, I think, as he was the grandson of John McClatchy II, who was the brother of Mary McClatchey.
