I have been working on and off on this line of my family for about 5 yrs and wanted to share what I have found so far. Some of what I have is guess work but I would like the descedents of Joseph and Frances Malone Alexander to have a look and see what they think.
1790 census Mifflin Co. PaPage 113
Joseph Alexander1 male >163 males <164 females also on this page is Francis, Richard Jr., Richard Malone, Daniel Armstrong, Thomas Howard and Robert Boggs
1800 census Centre Co. PaPage 506
Joseph Alexandermales(4 <10)(110-15)(216-25)(126-44) females (2 <10)(3 10-15)(1 26-44)
There is also a William Alexander on page 506 agemale(1 16-25)female(1 16-25)
1810 Tax List Ohio
Joseph Alexander is listed in 1810Ross Co. Ohio 1816 he is listed Jefferson Twp. Ross Co. Ohio.There is also a James Alexander listed in 1810 and 1816 Jefferson Twp. Ross Co. Ohio.This couldn't be Joseph's son James, he wasn't old enough. They are also both listed on the 1817 and 1818 lists.
1820 census for German Twp. Clark Co. Ohio Page 17
Living next to Joseph is Francis Alexander males (4 to 10) (1 10-16) (1 26-45) female (1 to 10) (1 16-26) Could this be the Francis Alexander married to Mary Hashaw (Henshaw) married 4-23-1814 Ross Co. Ohio? If so the male child age 10-16 could not be their's plus Mary is only 16-26. Who is this Francis?
Also living close to Joseph is Joseph Hanks (husband of daughter Margaret Alexander) and living next door to Joseph and Margaret Hanks is John McKee.
In 1790 Joseph had these possible 3 sons and 3 daughters In 1800 Joseph had these possible 7 sons and 5 daughters In 1820 Joseph had2 sons and 3 daughters
1 new female 1804-1810
So 5 boys and 3 girls had left home or died by 1820. If they married they were most likely married in Ross or Clark Co. Ohio
Samuel Alexander married Mary Kelly 6-29-1809 in Ross Co. Ohio Joseph Alexander married Elizabeth Armstrong 3-3-1814 Ross Co. Oh John Alexander married Sally Hatton 2-13-1817 Ross Co. Oh Hartley Alexander married Nancy Carr 3-16-1820 Butler Co. Oh Margaret Alexander married Joseph Hanks 3-30-1814 Ross Co. Oh
>From 1803-1820 there were only 3 possible female Alexander marriage's that there are records for in Ross Co. Oh
Castilla Alexander that married James Lecount (she was from Delaware) Jane Alexander that married John McKee 8-22-1803 Ross Co. Oh Rebecca Alexander married Thomas Orr 2-3-1811 Ross Co. Oh(Rebecca was Frances Malone Alexander's mother's name)
John Mckee is living next to Joseph Hanks and close to Joseph Alexander in Clark Co. Oh in 1820. John McKee has 1 female 26-45In 1800 Joseph had 3 daughters 10-15 one was Margaret I believe Jane was another born 1785-1790.
Could Rebecca that married Thomas Orr also be another? 1820 Thomas Orr is living in Ross Co. Springfield Twp. page 275 wife is 26-45
James Alexander that married Polly Hatton 2-1-1805 in Ross Co. Oh was to young to be Joseph's son but could he be the James listed on the 1810-1818 tax list? I believe James that married Polly Hatton was related to Joseph, I also believe Polly was related to Sally Hatton that married John Alexander (son of Joseph) in 1817 Ross Co.
Richard Alexander married Susannah Hempleman 9-16-1823 Clark Co. Oh James Alexander married Harriett Myers 11-3-1828 Clark Co. Oh (Possible)
I believe another possible daughter for Joseph was Frances Alexander that married Joseph Edie 3-2-1820 in Butler Co. Oh she died bef. 1828. Frances's daughter Margaret Edie married Francis Hatton Alexander (son of John Alexander and Sally Hatton). If Frances was a daughter of Joseph that would make Margaret Edie and Francis Hatton Alexander cousins.
Hartley Alexander1830 Census Ohio, Page 89, Green Twp. Clark Oh. Listed as Hackley Alexander1840 census there is a Nancy Alexander with 5 children in Warren Co. Indiana I think maybe Hartley's widow.
There is a Franklin Alexander 1840 in Steuben Co. Jackson Twp. Indiana page 104 age 30-40
