Wordless Wednesday -- O How I Wish - ALEXANDER OF N.C to Georgia and Arkansas and Texas

Alexander at this point starts for family in North Carolina.  With the use of census we have tracked the direct line back this far and some collateral have helped us learn the mother's first name.

So we start with Mr. ALEXANDER  married to a Martha whom is the mother of James Alexander and Grandmother of Charles Alexander. 
With these clues we share,  The line we are digging is James brother "George Baron DeKalb Alexander".
George was born around 1820 in Georgia, both his parents were born in North Carolina.

George marries 15 Sept 1853 Phillips Co. Ark. to Susan E. Owen. Documented.
George and Susan are in Ark for 1860, Phillips Co. Independence Twp 1860.. p 135 Slave schedule,
1860 Federal Census, lists George ,Susan, Mary 3 and Edward 1, also a William Mason, Carpenter b VA.
Side bar Robinson family just below him and last name of  Allen, Allin before him.

1870  Federal Census Hampton, Monroe, Arkansas  lists George, Susan and 2 girls 4 & 2  and children from Powel. .  Fanny Powell 11, Garland 4 and Ayn 15

1910 Federal Census George Alexander, aged 90 , b GA, father born North  Carolina
. mother b North Carolina
Spouse Susan E   age 73 lived Snyder Scurry, Texas

Bertie Alexander 31
Z E Coates 42 and Oma Coates 25

George Barron DeKalb Alexander died 5 July 1912 Snyder Texas, Allopath ( Doctor)

By tracking Charles D the nephew to his father we also found George's mothers name to be Martha.

Further Research implies???? Martha was a Robinson and her husband may have been Amzi Alexander
b 1788 Mecklinburg Co. N C Martha Robinson b 1790 Mechlinburg Co. N C.

Looking for anyone researching Amzi Alexander and Martha or anyone researching his parents
Moses Alexander.  This last tidbit found on the Alexanders of Georgia site by William Alexander.

Looking for proof that George and James were children of Martha Alexander as census implies.

Amzi Alexander just does not show up any where but story implied that her husband died not an old man.
I found many Martha Alexanders' and no Amzi Alexander on censuses.
