Some of us Alexander searchers believe that the nine children were traveling with their father, William, but as far as I know we don't have any proof of this. I would love to know the information your mother-in-law left for you.
I have a Reuben born about 1827 in Bald Knob, Tennessee and married Eliza Jane Looney, born 1828 in Franklin County, Tennessee. Sorry but I don't know Reuben's parents at this time. I have a few possibilities of his parents but no proof as of yet.
