I do not have your Edward b. 1805 in my data base but you may want to start with the first Alexander to that area and work your way forward.

Anthony Alexander "humbly Sheweth that he hath right to 200 acres of Land by the Importacon of himselfe Ann his wife, Anthony his son & Jno Mason his servt, wch he is ready to prove & prays a Cert & shall pray. w. Glover Cl Cur." (from NC Historical & Genealogical Records)

"North Caroline Headrights - A List of Names, 1663 - 1744" pg. 30

p. 225 {CCR 102} Anthony Alexander proves his right to two hundred acres of land by the Importation of himself, An his Wife Anthony his son and Jno. Mason (General Court, 28 July 1698)

Anthony and Ann appear to have had 19 children. You can find his will and much more on the Alexanders at http://www.ncgenweb.us/tyrrell/TYRRELL.HTM

So far as I know Anthony Alexander was the progenitor of all the Alexanders in that area of NC.

I've also been researching the Alexander's during this time period. At this time I have not been able to tie back to the original Anthony Alexander who arrived in area in 1690's. What I can document is back to my 3x Great Grandfather John Anthony Alexander who was born around 1772 in Tyrrell County. He sold his land in Washington County in the 1830's and moved west. In attempting to find John Anthony's parent and/or siblings I came across a Z P Alexander who's parent's were Edward Alexander and Nancy Powers. I have posted some of my research @ myfamilyibalex.wordpress.com/

Thanks,
I.B. Alexander
