I am afraid our Josiah's are different families. My great great grandfather, Josiah Martin Alexander, was born on 3 February 1846 in Gibson County, Tennessee. He was the son of James Patterson Alexander and Jane C. Patterson. I refer to him as Josiah Martin #2. My Josiah Martin Alexander married Nancy Elizabeth Whitworth,
Josiah Martin Alexander #1 is in the next generation back. Josiah #1 was the son of Josiah E. Alexander, born 27 August 1777 in Rowan or Iredell Co., N.C. Josiah M. #1 married Amanda McCaleb, 23 March 1846, Gibson Co., Tennessee.
Josiah E. Alexander, father of Josiah M.#1, and grandfather of Josiah M. #2, was married to Agnes Patterson. She used the nickname "Nancy." Agnes Nancy Patterson was the sister of Alexander Patterson, daughter of James Patterson and Sarah Fleming. Next generation back from Josiah E. Alexander was his parents Gabriel Alexander and Jane Black of Iredell Co., North Carolina.
