I have found a very early Pennsylvania deed that I find interesting. I am in hopes that someone researching Alexanders will have more historical information than I can glean from this record:
A deed dated 15 Jun 1745 says [in part] . . . "whereas William Penn the son by deed dated 20 Sep 1715 granted to John Evans of the county of Denbigh, Esq the said tract of land . . . ."And then a few years later a release dated 26 Mar 1747 . . . "Mary Evans [she being the daughter of John Evans mentioned above] of Landerneg in the county of Denbigh, in Old England, spinster . . . to WILLIAM ALEXANDER of Charlestown, carpenter. . . . for the sum of 400 [pounds] granted to WILLIAM ALEXANDER all the lands in Pennsylvania and America."
Does anyone know anything about this William Alexander? Where did he fit into the general Alexander family of PA/MD/DE - or did he?
