This might be a repeat.Sorry, I don't know what happened to the previous message.
Thank you for your reply.We have pretty much narrowed it down that our Charles Grandison ALEXANDER was b. 1838 the son of Silas ALEXANDER and Masilda YOUNG of Allen Co., KY.
BTW, you should know that, according to the 1850 Census of Washington Co., AR, Charles Grandison ALEXANDER, b. 1794 the son of James Rankin ALEXANDER and Dorcas GARRISON was born in North Carolina, as was his brother Silas in 1791.
