The 1784 Mecklenburg County, NC will of Samuel Alexander mentioned his wife Sarah and children named James, Easter (Esther), Margaret, Martha, Elizabeth, Mary, and Sarah.
Does anyone have information relative to this Samuel Alexander and does anyone know to which Mecklenburg/Cabbarus County Alexander family he belongs?I don't know for sure, but there may be a connection to Charles Alexander and/or the Shelby family.
Does anyone know what became of Samuel's wife Sarah, or the children? I ask because one Sarah Alexander appears on Madison County, Kentucky tax lists starting in 1789.Additionally, I have found marriage records in Madison and Garrard County, Kentucky for the following:
1. Mary Alexander to Nicholson 1790 2. Sarah Alexander to Timothy Logan 1793 3. Martha Alexander to Henry Terrill 1796 4. Elizabeth Alexander to George Simpson 1798 (Sarah Alexander, mother of bride, signed consent, and Timothy Logan signed as a witness 5. James Alexander to Elizabeth Logan 1804 (Elizabeth being the daughter of Timothy Logan by his first marriage to Sarah Boone)
I didn't find anything for Esther or Margaret, but I can mention that the only child from the marriage of Timothy Logan to Sarah Alexander was named Margaret.
Can anyone tell me if the Samuel Alexander family of Mecklenburg connects to the Alexanders in Madison/Garrard Co., KY?I descend from James Alexander and Elizabeth Logan.
