Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am tracking the Ancestors and Descendants of my 4th gr grandfather William Alexander, Rev War Vet, born 1752 Northumberland Co, Virginia and died 1831 Anderson Co, Kentucky. William Alexander's DNA Haplo group is R1a1. Only 5% of all Alexanders have this particular DNA. My Alexanders are not related to the 95% of other Alexanders.

I am also tracking the Descendants of another 4th gr grandfather Jeremiah Phillips, Rev War Vet, born 1745 and died 1805 Mercer Co, Kentucky.

And I am the 5th gr granddaughter of three other Rev War Vets: Robert McAfee the Kentucky Pioneer, John Cardwell Jr and James McCoun.

Thanks, Carole Lee Alexander

RE: Gregory and Kathaleen Gregory
Sorry, I put her dad's memorial number instead of her husbands. Thank you for correcting the correction :)

Jeremiah and Minnie Northcutt
I am sorry...I think name changes are done very quickly now with the new edit button and drop downs. It looks like they have added some new options too. Jeremiah is linked to his parents and I am just waiting for his father's full name to show instead of initials. I am thankful to you and find a grave. Tess Beshara

Hi Carole,
When we went out to take the picture of Virgil Alexander's grave his wifes headstone was by his.
I went ahead and set of a memorial and added the picture and linked it to Virgil. If you would like a transfer please give me your Find a Grave Number and I'll do that.

RE: Lovina Shellhammer/Shelhamer
I am aware of the variations in spelling, there are Shellhammer's who married in to my Huss family line. Linking family's together and adding a note that the spellings varied would be sufficient. I have done this to numerous family members and it has worked just fine. Those who search by the correct spelling of the name would have a hard time finding their family members; however, they are your pages to manage.

Jeremiah Phillips
Hello Carol,

I believe I am a descendant of Jeremiah Phillips. What I have goes like this, Jeremiah Phillips was the father of George Phillips, who was the father of Nancy Margaret Phillips who was the second great grandmother to my mother Mary Lou Blew, thru Georgia Ann Slaughter a daughter of Lewis Edgecomb Slaughter who was the husband Nancy Margaret Phillips, George Phillips daughter. Their son Justice of the Peace, Philip Slade Slaughter married my grandmother Eulah Belle (Still) Blew who was Jessie Still and Georgia Ann Slaughter's daughter.

Jeremiah Phillips George Phillips Nancy Margaret Phillips Philip Slade Slaughter Georgia Ann Slaughter Eulah Belle Still Mary Lou Blew Me.

Please by all means correct me if I am wrong but thru censuses, marriages, and what little I can find on Jeremiah, George and Nancy Margaret Phillips I believe I am related to him.

If the line is established and it is true how does one prove Jeremiah Philips actually was in the Battle of Brandywine/Revolutionary War. SAR/DAR will not accept anything from Ancestry or FindAGrave, however, I have noticed things published on Jeremiah's ancestry page but the info is not verified even tho it seems to be from a book which is not in print or has never been in print.

Anything you can help me with will be deeply appreciated and I hope I am wrong about the lineage since Jeremiah was such an important figure in shaping the country.

Thank You!

RE: Howard Co Cemetery Records by Boggs & Coutts
Hi Carole,
As far as I know, the Boggs/Coutts listings are not online anywhere. I mainly concentrate on Randolph County, and with so many families connected in both counties, I knew the Howard Co memorials were far from complete. I was able to borrow a hard copy and just went through filling in the smaller family farm cemeteries that had not been entered yet. I did not have time to go through all the larger church and city cemeteries, but they seem to be well-covered.

I will be happy to transfer so just ask away!
