Searching for Ezra ALEXANDER and Mary POLK descendants gets me deeper and deeper into confusion and I am wondering if someone who is working on the ALEXANDER genealogy could perhaps communicate with me in order to compare and help me.
In the Genealogical Notes on Ezra ALEXANDERhttp://freepages.family.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~josephkennedy...
it is indicated: Ezra Alexander was born February 26, 1740 in either Frederick or Cecil County, MD. He is identified in the will of Arthur Alexander (Mecklenburg County, NC) as the brother of Abraham Alexander, therefore making him also the son of Elias and Sophie Alexander.
According to the FindAGrave website, http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=AL...
Ezra ALEXANDER was born 26 Feb 1739 in Cecil County, Maryland and died 6 Jul 1800 in North Carolina and buried in Polk Family Cemetery, Pineville, Mecklenburg Coutny, NC.
Wife is Mary POLK (1744-1814). Sons mentioned: Eleazer and Augustus.

I found a mistake concerning his marriage to Margaret CARTER. The marriage date is mentioned as being September 19, 1770 - This is her Birth Date! Their marriage date must be around 1787 since their first child was born on February 3, 1788 in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. I haven't been able to find the marriage yet.
Thank you for your help.
