Bill, I believe that your Silas Alexander rmarried Nancy Thompson. His nephew, Silas Grandison Alexander, was in Harrison County at the same time. Silas and his wife are buried in Waskom, Tx. I believe that your Silas was buried in Smilh County. I am going to Smith County in two weeks and if you want pictures of Silas' grave let me know and U'll e-mail them to you. My gg grandfather, Evan Morgan, was married to Easter Alexander and lived in Harrison County before moving to Houston County, Tx. I still live on the Evan Morgan homestead in Houston County, He and Easter are buried about a mile from where I live. Easter,s brother's Silas G. and Franklin Houston Alexander where living in Houston County in 1840. Your Silas was listed in several newspaper aritcles in the Marshall, Tx. newspapers in the 1800's.
