It is my understanding that Oliver Alexander is the father of Ebenezer Alexander, not James.I believe that he had a brother named James born about 1755. Ebenezer was born in Spartenburg, South Carolina.
I think that the fact that Nancy Ann Alexander McKinney had a son that she named Oliver, somewhat supports this information.
That said, I am having a devil of a time trying to find additional information on Oliver.
Nancy's brother William Patton is my line. Ebenezer would be my ggggg grandfather.
