Charles Phillip Alexander was born 1800-1810 in North Carolina. Moved to Tennessee by 1820's when he married Kesiah (Sullivan?). Both Charles & Kesiah had died by 1847 in Cannon Co. Tenn. Believe they had lived in Warren Co., TN also. Documents of Charles' estate in 1848 state that there were 14 children. Nancy married John A. George, Mary Adaline born 1824 married John William Crane. Other children were: Margaret, Sarah, Berry, William T., Martha, Rebecca, Surelda, Marcus L., Isabella, Cyrus G., Laura.
At the time of his death, Charles was guardian of four children of William Sullivan in Warren Co.,TN. Believe there must be a family connection there.
A possible brother to Charles may be Archilus Alexander, born 1807 in North Carolina, who was living near Charles in 1840 & 1850 Census Cannon Co.,TN.
Would appreciate sharing information with anyone about this family. Thanks.
