Ma told us stories about the family when we were kids, although Mom stopped it when the ghost stories were too intense... she especially liked to point out that I was named after Col.

Ma used to tell stories about the Eoff cousins (a German way of spelling Jeff, but pronounced Oaf), and there was some mariage with "local" poeple before she was born (Indians).

12. Thomas T. Alexander, born in 1730s, NC. 1st generation US, from Canada. He (or his father Thomas Sr?) was supposed to have been third generation American... they didn't differentiate Canada and the southern Colonies back then, before the Revolution.

13. Eureth (Cherokee?)

Generation No. 8  (to table of contents)

The story goes that the family came over originally to Canada, and migrated to the Carolinas as family to work as planters for the Alexanders of Va. Permanent structures were in place some time around 1700, having been fairly mobile for the times in holding land ourselves in N. Carolina, since about 1650. Sounds good, since the move to MO from N. Carolina also took two generations, too, beginning about 1800, and ending with buildings in place about 1833. Stories have come down about crossing the Missouri River with wagons, and earlier crossing the St. Laurence. Before the Alexanders came to be Prime Ministers and whatnot in Canada, they came from Scotland.
