The earliest deed I've found for James Alexander is as follows. I don't have more precise information on the location of his homestead at the time of his death.If you could, would you send me the text of the deed/entry regarding the area which included the land mentioned in James' will?
Culpeper County, Virginia Deeds, Vol. III (1762-1765), Deed Book D (1762-1765), pgs. 25-27:Nicholas Ware of Caroline County to James Alexander of Culpeper County.For 50 pounds current money.500 acres, part of 1000 acres granted to Nicholas Ware, 500 acres being formerly sold to Jeremiah Rawlings. . . at Jeremiah Rawlins' corner including all the patent land excepting the part sold to Jeremiah Rawlins./s/ Nicho. Ware.Wit:William Alexander, Michael Ehart, Robt. Alexander.11 Nov. 1761.Proved by Robert Alexander and Michael Ehort.20 May 1762.Proved by William Alexander.
Note:Who were Robert and William Alexander?They were contemporaries of James'.Were they relatives, I wonder?
