I, too, need clarification since all of these Alexanders are confusing.
I have access to a book on abstracts of North Carolina wills.In that book is the abstract of the will of ABRAHAM Alexander of Mecklenburg Co. which lists his wife DORCAS, son ISAAC, his only daughter ELIZABETH, son ABRAHAM, son NATHANIEL, son JOAB, son CYRUS, son EZRA, and son MARCUS.
I have an ancestor whose name was Marcus Tullis Cicero KENNEDY.Marcus married first in 1816 Pamelia WILSON, and second Mary HOUSTON, daughter of Archibald Houston.His sister was Amelia Sophia KENNEDY.She married James LEITCH.The Leitch family was related by marriage to the POLK family.Marcus T.C. and Amelia Sophia were the children of Rev. Samuel KENNEDY & his wife, Elizabeth (maiden name unknown).Upon Samuel's death in 1796, his will named Joab ALEXANDER and William WILEY as guardians of Amelia Sophia and Nathaniel Alexander was named guardian of Marcus T.C. Kennedy.We have long suspected that Samuel's wife, Elizabeth was an Alexander by birth but have been unable to establish proof.
Other names that appear in the probate records of Samuel KENNEDY'S estate are Isaac Alexander, John Hannah Orr, Cyrus Alexander, Samuel Graham, Charles Polk, Robert Wyley, William Allen, Charles J. Alexander, William Leetch, John Davis, John Walker, David Cowan, Matthew Wallis, James Black, Zebulon ALexander, Josiah Alexander, Wallis Alexander, John Wily, Elijah Alexander, William Grey, William Stewart, and several others.
How are the Alexanders & Kennedys related? Any help in clarifying the information is appreciated.
