I am seeking more information on this Alexander DOWDLE. (Any Spelling) and his family.
1896 Nelson County or Hardin County, KY shows Alexander DOWDELL or DOWDLE married Joanna/Johanna CLOS/CLOSE . Surety is signed by John P. Brown 1896 Nelson County or Hardin County, KY also show William Dowdeff Dowdess (probably Dowdell)marriage contract to Mary Sarah Brown, Surety signed by John P. Brown.
Joanna Clos/Close was either Joanna/Johanna (FARROW) CLOSE, the widow of Jacob CLOSE, or she was Johanna/Joanna CLOS/CLOSE, a daughter of Jacob CLOSE and Joanna FARROW.
Jacob CLOSE, of NC, and Joanna/Johanna FARROW [FARRAR?] of Virginia were my 5th great grandparents. Jacob CLOSE was probably deceased by 1789.Their son, John CLOSE, of Nelson County, KY, (my 4th great grandfather) removed to Louisiana, were he remained. I am trying to find out more of Joanna's life after Jacob's death.
I've come across the following:
1790 Census, Washington County, Maryland lists an Alexander DOWDLE. --------
