Seeking Information and Sharing----Alexander

Seeking information on Adam Alexander, his family, and ancestors.

There is some documentation to support the following stipulations:
·       Adam Alexander
o   born 1773 in North Carolina
o   In Jasper County, GA for 1820 and 1830 census
o   Participated in the 1821 Cherokee Land Lottery in Georgia with 2 draws
o   Died on 8 November 1830 in Jasper County, GA
o   His estate was probated in Jasper County, GA in 1831
·       Wife was Martha Morrow – Morrow may be last or middle name – seems likely last as another Morrow living near them
o   Born about 1790 in North Carolina
o   Lived in Jasper, Monroe, Pike and Spaulding  Counties – last three may be all same location as county was divided
o   Claimed  land in Cherokee lottery as widow and as agent for orphans, one in Walker County, TN and one in Cobb County NC
o   Died after 1860 in Spaulding Co., GA
·       Children of Adam and Martha
o   6 cited at time of death – five found thus far
o   Lawrence Pike Alexander – b. 1814 in NC / marr. Mary Jane Hill 6 Jul 1843 / had at least 4 children-Julia, James, Laura and Minnie / was a sheriff / live in Monroe, Pike and Spaulding counties in GA
o   James Ludlow Alexander – b. 1815 in NC or GA as both are listed in census \ marr. Mary Ann Lake 27 Apr 1837 / had at least 9 children-Emily, Martha, Joseph, George, James L. Jr, Charles D., Mary B., Susan F., and Frank / was a clerk and general trader / lived in Monroe, Pike and Spaulding counties in GA / d. 1890
o   George Barren DeKalb Alexander – b. 13 Jan 1820 near Macon, GA / marr. Susan Elizabeth Owen 15 Sep 1853 in Phillips AR / had 9-12 children-Mary, Edward, Lee, Zulah Evelyn, Annie, Susan Georgie, Glennus Owen, Birdie Rose, and Charles Bibb Sr./ was a homoeopathic physician / fought in the Mexican American War as a Lt. with Fanin’s Avengers out of Griffin G / dies 16 Mar 1912 in Scurry Co., TX
o   Ephraim A. – born after 1818
o   Adam W.– born after 1818
·       Living near Adam in Jasper County, GA is George Alexander who appears to be related, most likely a brother – they both are involved in creating the Hillsboro School in that area

The following are strong likelihoods

·       Adam was born in Mecklenburg County  

·       He might be the son of  Charles Alexander or his brother Col Adam Alexander, both sons of William Alexander and Agnes Alexander of Mecklenburg

·       He is related to George Alexander who is in Jasper County, Georgia 1830.  He may also be related to George Lee Alexander in the same county at that time.

·       Other potential relatives, - Charles T. Alexander and Paris Alexander

·       His wife Martha Morrow is likely related to James H. Morrow who took on guardianship of one of her children when Adam Alexander died
