William L. Alexander died bet 1816 and 1820 in Lincoln Co., TN. He married Keziah ? Their son is believed to be George Washington Alexander (Sr.) was born in TN in 1808. Also living in Lincoln County about that time were Samuel Smith Alexander, b. 1806, and Wiley M. Alexander, b. 1816, both likely brothers of George Washington b 1808.

A descendant of them, Mildred, got her third cousin Sam to determine their DNA to compare to others including Alexanders.
