I have been searching for the parents of my gggg grandmother, Jane (Jensy) Alexander for many, manyyears. Always thought that ABEL ALEXANDERwas her father--but could not prove it.
Found on ancestry where a woman named Kay Sloan had posted an indenture for the selling of some of Abel Alexander'sland to a Charles Polk. It listed all of Abel's children and their spouses. It is a transcription of the document and some names aremisspelled and a whole sentence is left out. This the first part of the document.
"This indenture made and entered into this 28 th of July in the year of our Lord 1824 between the heirs of Abel Alexander : Baxter Alexander, Zenas Alexander, *William McMasters and Cynthia, his wife ,later Cynthia Alexander, Sila Alexander, *Whitfield Holland and his wife, Jane , later Jane Alexander, Margaret Alexander, Andrew Alexander all heirs and representatives as aforesaid of the county of Trigg and state of Kentucky, of one part and Charles Polk of the county of Stewart and the state of Tennessee, of theother part........................."
*Jane Alexander married Whitmill Holland.
*The marriage record for Cynthia Alexander stated that she married William McWaters. I found a William McWaters listed in the censuses but did not find a William McMasters.
Abel Alexander married Elizabeth Baxter.
Hope this helps someone else find their ancestors.
