"...He was the son of William and Elizabeth [-?-] Alexander. Samuel Alexander m. Jean Penland in 1797 - she was the daughter of Robert and Elizabeth (Brank) Penland. The only sibling of this Samuel that I have notes on was Noble Alexander. There were undoubtedly others..."
This seems to be my William ALEXANDER and wife, Elizabeth (?).They had a daughter, Elizabeth ALEXANDER, born 23 Jan 1753 according to pages from the old WAKEFIELD Family Bible.The bible stated that her parents were "William and Elizabeth".Elizabeth married Henry WAKEFIELD 20 Mar 1778 in Burke Co., NC. (This, I believe, was info from the Bible also).Elizabeth died 1790 or 1791 Burke Co., NC, then Henry remarried Mary SIMPSON 25 Oct 1791.I found William as a tavernkeeper in Burke Co., NC:8 Oct 1754, Rowan Co., NC, "William ALLEXDR petitioned this Court for a license to keep Ordinary (tavern) at the house where he now Dwells.Granted Security: Edward Hughs and Squire Boone Esqr.Granted."This was apparently the "Buckhorn Tavern along the old Yellow Mountain Road in Burke Co., NC".**Burke Co. was formed from Rowan Co. in 1777.
I would like to know if you know when and where this William died and is buried?I haven't found his death yet.
