I don't think the book would help me much at this point. My family was in Greenup Co. Ky. by 1830 but I don't know where they came from. His name was William James and his father is said to be Jesse. There is a Jesse in Bath Co. about the time your John was there. Do you have any info on those two names? It appears that you have more info on the Bath Co. Alexanders than I do. All I have is the census and John and Jesse appear in the 1820 Bath Co. census. Brothers? I have found some court records on a Robert in Bath Co.
