Charles born Jan 4, 1755, Mecklenburg Co., NC. Migrated to
Giles Co., TN, in 1814, then to Maury Co. (Swan Creek) by
1832. Archivist said he was buried at Ebenezer's Church (Reese's Chapel), but did not have a date of burial or a head
stone. Assumed he died before 1840 census of Pensioners
since he was not listed. His death prob. was between Sep
8, 1834, and 1840 census. The archivist confirmed that the
Charles who was buried there was born Jan 4, 1755, in NC.
Charles was the son of Benjamin and Susannah (Polk) Alexander of Mecklenburg Co., NC (Charlotte area). Besides
CHARLES, they had Ezekiel, Wm. "Black Bill", Susannah
Polk, Thomas, (Charles), Taylor, Benjamin, Jr., James and
He and his cousin, Leonidas Polk, had a meeting which
Leonidas wrote about when in Maury Co., TN, on Sep 8,
1834. It was stated that Charles had come to Maury Co.
18 months earlier (1832) and lived 15 miles hence on Swan
Creek. Charles told Leonidas that he would be 80 if he lived
until Jan 4 next (1835). Apparently, he left Mecklenburg for
Giles Co., TN, when he was about 59 (in 1814). He was
about 79 when he and cousin Leonidas Polk met in Maury
I am seeking any information for the WIFE and children of this
Charles Alexander. One source said they had a son Ezekiel
who married Martha "Patsey" Robison, but no proof that this
Ezekiel was the son of Charles and wife.
I will appreciate any help at all. Thank you.
