Junius Milton ALEXANDER b. 18 April 1826, Loray, Iredell Co, NC son of Levi Nelson ALEXANDER and Hannah LEWIS
I know he was part of the Mecklenburg Alexanders, but how was he related to Abraham Alexander, the Chair of the Convention?
m. 1st Sarah Louise GIBSON m. 2nd Elizabeth Evaline 'Eliza' MCLAIN, bef. 1874
His children include: Lola ALEXANDER born Henry Quincy ALEXANDER born 1863 at Loray, Iredell Co, NC Francis Abner ALEXANDER born 1868 Cora Lee ALEXANDER born 1 January 1874 at Statesville, Iredell Co, NC Lola Belle ALEXANDER born 24 August 1877
His daughter Cora Lee m. Joseph Pinckney CATHEY, ca. 1900. Cora and Joseph's daughter Mary Cathey married John Van Hanford. Mary and John's child is Elizabeth Hanford, who married Bob Dole, who ran for President.
Elizabeth Evaline 'Eliza' MCLAIN wife of Junius Milton ALEXANDER is the daughter of Henry MCLAIN and (Isabella) Catherine WHITE. Catherine is the daughter of George WHITE and Rebecca 'Becky' MCCLATCHEY.Rebecca was the daughter of (William) Hamilton McClatchey Sr and Catherine McCollum.
I am a descendant of both Hamilton McClatchey and Abraham Alexander; ergo, it appears that Elizabeth Dole and I are double fifth cousins. If anyone can help me fill in the missing pieces or private additional information about these families, I would appreciate it.
