Anne, Thank you for posting to my message. I don't have the names of the children of Gabriel Alexander & Jane Black of N. C. Nor do I have the will for Allen Ulysses Alexander, and the names of his children. Can you help me? I am looking for a Josiah Martin Alexander that was born in North Carolina (probably Iredell or Mecklenburg Co.) on 27 August 1777. He was married to Nancy (??Paterson) that was born 11 March 1779 in North Carolina. Their children were Elizabeth Alexander,Jane P. (?Paterson) Alexander, James P. (??Patterson),John Maran/Marion Alexander, Zenas H. Alexander, Isaac N. Alexancer, Josiah Martin Alexander, and Doctor Ulysses Alexander. This family migrated to Gibson County, Tennessee. I have been stuck at this brick wall for so long I have wondered if I will ever get this family straightened out.could sure use some help.
