Thank you for posting this most informative information.
Henry Wakefield and Elizabeth Alexander are my 4X great grandparents.
Yes, Elizabeth Alexander died young, and Henry remarried to Mary Simpson.
From the marriage of Henry and Elizabeth Alexander Wakefield was a daughter, Elizabeth Wakefield.
Elizabeth Wakefield married Arthur Crocker.
This family, and brances of Wakefield, Bankson, and Hooper (and more connected families) moved to IL in the early 1800s.
William Hooper, born 1805, son of James Hooper and Jemima Bankson (from GA), married Jeroushia Crocker (daughter of Arthur Crocker and Elizabeth Wakefield Crocker) 1826, Shelby County, IL.
Joseph F. Hooper, son of William Hooper and Jeroushia Crocker Hooper, born Dec. 26, 1826, Shelby County, IL, is my great grandfather.
Thank you, again, for your post.
