Ezekiel was born in 1778 in NC and died of Typhoid Fever in May of 1850 in Hardin County Tennessee.
I believe Ezekiel was the one enumerated in the 1820 Mecklenburg Co., NC census:Ezekile Alexander 10001-3001.He is enumerated close to Susan Alexander, Charles T. Alexander and Evin Alexander (on the same census page).
In 1830, Ezekiel was in Wayne Co., TN:Ezekiel Alexander 0121001-1201101, along with Arthur M. Alexander 2200001-0020001, and Samuel J. Alexander 00001-2001.(I don't know if they were together, only that they were all in Wayne Co.They were not neighbors and no reason to suspect that the were related.)
In 1840, he was in Hardin Co., TN: Ezekiel Alexander 00021001-0011111, with his son, William T. Alexander 0001-2001, also Adley S. Alexander 01012001-0011001, and John D. Alexander 210001-11201.
Ezekiel was married to Martha Robinson, the daughter of Sarah Robinson who died in Yazoo Co., MS in 1838-39.Martha's brother was William A. Robinson b. 1792 in NC.From a book of marriages in Mecklenburg, Co., NC, I have an Ezekiel Alexander m. Patsey Robison, 8 Mar. 1806; Ozni Alexander, bondsman; Isaac Alexander, wit.
The children of Ezekiel and Martha Alexander were:1.Josiah Alexander, b. 1814, NC, m. Eliza Harrell.2.William T. Alexander b. 1816, NC, m. Ruth Lacefield.3. Cyrus Granville Alexander, b. 1819, m. Sarah M.Smith. 4.Ruth Alexander Polk White, b. 1822, m 1st Green H. Polk, 2nd Thomas White.5. Sarah J. Alexander Northcutt, b. 1814, m. J. W. Northcutt. Most all of the above are buried in Harmony Cemetery in Hardin Co., TN about 2 miles, as the crow flies, from my house.
I am descended from William T. and Ruth Lacefield Alexander through their daughter Easter Caroline Alexander Cagle.
