I must explain that I am involved with Alexander families in two different lines of my husband's families.
One a Thomas Alexander was born 12 December 1773 in North Carolina, but no one can locate him there.
The Matthew Alexander whom I am searching at present is from his Cole line.I am not certain that this is the proper Alexander line to follow, although the Matthew Alexander who married Phoeby Cole, married into a large Cole family in Kentucky where my husband's Cole line seems to have been at one time.
Let me tell you what I have found on the Alexanders in Kentucky, who were there early on.Ebenzezer Alexander obtained a Ky Land Grant of 50 acres around 7/7/1796 in Logan county,KY.There are others listed with him there.John Alexander, Joseph Alexander, Reubin Alexander, Nicholas Alexander, and Mathias Alexander.
For Warren County, KY, I have nothing on Matthew Alexander except that he married Pheby Cole on 10 December 1811 in Warren County, KY.
Pheby Cole was the daughter of Zaccheus Cole and a Mary.Her father died in 1813 there in Warren Co., KY.
I am also not certain of the early counties in KY geographic changes.However, I know that some of these Coles in Warren co, KY, end up in Allen county, KY.However, before I go there, I found at least two Alexanders who took out land grants in Warren co.Ky.
Andrew M. Alexander received land in Warren Co., Ky, on 7/1/1807.A James R. Alexander also obtained land in Warren co., KY.
On the other hand, Matthew Alexander received land in Allen Co., of 100 acres, but I do not have the date of that land grant.There is also a Reuben Alexander who is mentioned inLogan Co and Warren Co, but I have no dates for him.
I also have a Matthew Alexander who married Elizabeth Morin in Bourbon Co., Ky, on 10 Dec 1816.No connections there that I can find.
I do not have any dates for Warren County, KY's Matthew Alexander who married Pheby Cole.However, I found a Matthew Alexander living in Allen Co., KY, among relative Cole family members from Warren Co., KY. Was Warren sub-divided to creat Allen Co.,KY?
