These Alexander families were enumerated in Bloomington township, Monroe County, Indiana in the 1850 census: John W. Alexander 37 yo [b. 1813] TN - painter Elizabeth Alexander 28 yo [b. 1822] SC Joseph N. Alexander 6 yo [b. 1840] IN Charles Alexander 2 yo [b. 1848] IN
Next door to this family was:
Matthew M. Alexander 40 yo [b. 1810] TN - wagon & carriage maker Elizabeth Alexander 35 yo [b. 1815] TN John Alexander 15 yo [b. 1835] TN Mary Alexander 13 yo [b. 1837] TN John Alexander 80 yo [b. 1770] PA Elizabeth Alexander 28 yo  TN
I would make a not too wild GUESS that John W. and Matthew M. were brothers and that John (senior) who was 80 yo was their father. Does anyone have additional information on any of these people. Where in Tennessee did they come from?
I am looking for John Wilkes Alexander b. 1776 in PA. He was raised in NC and was in Rutherford County, Tennessee by 1813 at the latest. This man was my ancestor's brother. But my ancestor, Reuben Alexander, settled in Jackson County, Indiana and after his death, his widow and several adult children were in Monroe County.
