My gggg-grandfather EZEKIEL SMITH was married to LAURANIA FELPS. Her brother, THOMAS FELPS, was married to a JANE SMITH. Jane's brother was an ALEXANDER SMITH. Their parents were JOHN SMITH and ELIZABETH WHITFIELD. JANE was born before 1755. Her brother ALEXANDER SMITH would have been about 75 in 1831 when your ALEXANDER SMITH died. It is thought that JANE SMITH was born in Craven County, NC. EZEKIEL SMITH was born in Craven Co. NC. He lived in Johnson Co., NC at the mouth of Carraway Creek before migrating to 96 Dist of SC where he married LAURANIA FELPS about 1762. His parents Capt. AARON SMITH and EKIZABETH CARRAWAY wee killed on July 1, 1776. Ezekiel migrated to Hancock Co., Ga. where he died in 1821. I know only what you see above about this ALEXANDER SMITH.
