Are these Spotswood & Spottswoods related to Gov Alexander Spottswood of Colonial Virginia?

I think the Washington A W Spotswood b 1807 d 1891 is actually:
William Augustine Washington Spotswood, son of George Augustine Washington Spotswood who was the son of Alexander Spotswood.
Most of the others look to be his children.

Mobile Probate Court Marraige Index lists:
William A W Spottswood & Mary Ann Justin, 28 Nov 1842
(I think her name is misspelled and should be Eastin)

I think the correct connection is through Gov Alexander Spotswood's son John M Spotswood who was married to Mary Dandridge a cousin of Martha Washington. Their son, General Alexander Spotswood married Elizabeth Washington a nice of George Washington.

So if indeed Washington A W Spotswood is related to the Gov Alexander Spotswood, it would be through his grandson General Alexander Spotswood.

The problem with that is records show that General Alexander Spotswood died in Kentucky in the mid 1840's without a will or any direct family heirs.

My great grandfather Jacob Fisher Myers was recorded in a court ordered Will to be one of about 20 known heirs to General Alexander Spotswood. He received a part of the Spotswood Estate in Kentucky.

The second connection of my family is through Patrick Henry. Patrick Henry is married to Dorothea Spotswood Dandridge the daughter of Dorothea Spotswood and Nathaniel Dandridge another cousin to Martha Washington. Dorothea Spotswood Dandridge is the granddaughter of Gov Alexander Spotswood.

Patrick Henry issued about 250 land grants containing over 1 million acres of Kentucky land to my Myers family. Jacob Myers who received that land was a surveyor for George Washington, Christopher Gist and Dr Thomas Walker MD.

Dr Thomas Walker's son John Walker was married Elizabeth Moore who is another one of Gov Alexander Spotswood's granddaughters through his daughter Anne Spotswood who married Benjamin Moore. This line is Gen Robert E Lee's family line.
