I am researching my ggg grandfather Jameson or James Alexander of Garrard County, Kentucky. He owned land near or on the Back Creek.
I first find him listed as Jameson Alexander on the 1799 Garrrard County, Kentucky Tax List. On March 1, 1804, James Alexander married Elizabeth Logan in Garrard County, KY with Charles Finnell as minister. I believe he had the following children: Sarah (Alexander) Hubbard, John A. Alexander, Samantha (Alexander) Lobbin, Mary (Alexander) Goodman, Lucinda Alexander (died young), Serilda Elizabeth (Alexander) Lynch, and two other sons. The family moved to Randolph County, Missouri in the 1820's, and James Alexander died there by September 30, 1845.
In 1848, all of the above named children assigned a power of attorney to collect from the estate of Timothy Logan in Garrard County, KY. It seems likely that Timothy Logan was their maternal grandfather.
James Alexander may possibly be related (son?) to Sarah Alexander who appears on Madison County, Kentucky tax lists in the 1780's and 1790's.
Any information as to identity of Jameson or James Alexander's parents/siblings as well as his location of birth (which I think may have been Virginia) would be greatly appreciated.
