Searching for parents of JF Alexander or Joseph Ferguson Alexander. Born in 1818 in Perry County Ohio, died in Athens County Ohio in 1910. He married a Susan Boyd in 1838. They had six daughters!
In all census records he states his parents were born in Ohio. His death certificate which was completed by his daughter Jennie lists his parents as UNKNOWN.
Trying to connect JF Alexander to the rest of his family. And have been looking for years for some southern ohio Alexanders.
I feel its reasonable to assume his mothers maiden name might have been Ferguson following naming conventions of that time.
Any info is appreciated. Thanks!
