Are you a member of the Genealogical Society of Iredell County, North Carolina? If so - you've read the short paper that I wrote that proves the father of our James Alexander. Have you seen it? It was printed in the Fall 2002 issue of "Iredell County Tracks".
Now we just have to find James' mother and then Elizabeth Ross' parents. Hey, it only took me ten years to solve the first parent. Will I live long enough to find the other three??
