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.

You can view "The Alexander and Phillips Family Tree" by CaroleLeeAlexander at Please contact me if you you are a William Alexander or a Jeremiah Phillips descendant. I would like to add you and your Family Members to my Tree. If you see any errors let me know!

Thanks, Carole Lee Alexander

Lawrence "Larry" Morris
The photo you requested has been uploaded. Larry was a friend of mine and my neighbor for several years. He lived across the street from us. His daughter Tammy and I both worked for the KY Department of Revenue so our paths crossed periodically. Larry was a good person. Your photo request has a personal connection for me. It was also interesting to know that he has a connection to the Phillips line.

George and Sarah Alexandeer
I looked again at what was written for Sarah in the listing at the genealogy library. The "Brick" that is referred to is not a real brick. It is the alternate name of the cemetery that was located near the Brick school and church. So the blank marker referred to could be anywhere in the cemetery and impossible for me to find at present. I did find out that the person who read the stones earlier might have some notes that I could check later this year that might provide some clues as to where the grave might be.
The cemetery record that was loaned to me for this project is definitely not complete as there are several pictures already posted on find a grave of people who are not on this list and I have found several more. So I am not giving up on the people I can not find. I just can not easily locate them without the cemetery record. Many stones are unreadable now, but when it is warmer I will look again. I saw that George's father is not in this cemetery. What family area do you want me to photograph?

RE: Frances Doan
I saw that too; I am thinking there were a ton of Doans from Ohio but have not heard of many at all from SC. Some from NC, though. Seems like if he were in the Civil War from IL, he would have been close to OH, and many people moved from OH to IN and IL, and then on to MO and KS. It makes more SENSE that it was OH. I couldn't figure it out definitively. I will try to remember to look in the Doane books. I would like to try to find his lineage. Gotta go to work though! BD

RE: William Earnie Kays
Carole - He's buried at Highview Cemetery, not Chaplin Fork Cemetery. As far as I know, Chaplin Fork has no recent burials. I've visited there several times, so I'm very familiar with both cemeteries. Best regards - Bill

Actually the Could marker's were the best maintained. Helen Principato's is on the verge of sinking but I tried brush off the ground the was covering it.

Walnut Prairie Cemetery in Illinois
Neither James or Elizabeth Coombes are in the cemetery record. There is no record for Larry or Mary Coombes. You said in your message that 2 of James' wives and his children are buried here. What are their names? Do you want me to check for any others?
I have found stones for a few other people who were not in the cemetery record, so there still is a possibility that they are buried with their other family members, but I do need some more information to try to find them.
The four Alexanders are not listed.
Sarah Reed and Lewis Marvin are listed and I will look for their stones when the weather is warmer.

It was my pleasure. I will head down that way within the week to fulfill the others. The Pedersen plot has been the most difficult. If you'd like I could always polish off the stones and take more pictures.

RE: Mary Alice Willard Carter
Carole - Thank you for the updates & links. Mary Alice's husbands appear to me to be in the correct order. I assume she married 1st. Raymond Thompson & presumably divorced him, and married 2nd. 1942, David L. Carter, which is what her memorial currently shows. Mary Alice's memorial doesn't belong to me, so I'd have to request the contributor Denny Jackson to add the 1942 marriage year. I'd be glad to do that if you would like, just let me know. However, sometimes adding the dates messes up the marriage order for some reason. Best regards - Bill C.

Rose Hills
Hello Carole,
Contributor Wanda contacted me in regards to your requests at Rose Hills which I am glad to fulfill. I will likely be out there sometime this week. Wanda mentioned that they're 12 family members in total but I could not find them all on the Rose Hills grave photo request page. So far, I have only the Gould's, Pedersen's, & Principato's listed. Please let me know who else you are requesting for.
