Samuel E. Alexander (1787-1861), apparently born of James Alexander, Jr. and Mary (?) in Spartanburg area of SC married Elizabeth Hinton in 1808 in Logan Co. Kentucky. They settled in the Roane County, area of east Tennessee around 1810. Among their children was John Hinton Alexander (b.1814), who married a Barbara Smith (b.1816). One of their children, Robert Hinton Alexander (b. 1842-1904)was my g-grandfather. He married Mary Elizabeth Grant(1859-1943)in 1881. Hope this is somewhat helpful.
