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

Hi Carole,
There are a lot of stones in Frankfort Cemetery that are not on the index list. And a lot of mistakes on the list, but the place has been open since 1846 and they are bound to have lost track of a couple hundred of the 25000+ there. I have the index and I have the book of names on stones. In the end it is best just to walk it. Always a good walk!

Will of Anguish Alexander
My name is Karen Brown. I am a daughter of Edith Snearly Brown who passed away this month, followed in two weeks by her second daughter Marsha Paulette Brown Nebeker. Sadly, Mom was the last of her generation and she was ready to join her siblings.
I know you have tracked her family as descendants of William Alexander. I have been doing family research since 2000. I'd like a copy of Anguish Alexander's will as you so generously offer. Is it in a format to be e-mailed? Please advise of what information you need to do this. Thanks in advance.

RE: Jacob Hurr
Carole, I have made the transfer. Semira is from my line of Hurr ancestors, but you are a more direct relative to her.

Jacob S Hurr, the 1st, actually died in Odessa Missouri,and I have located his grave in person at the segregated "white" section of the Mount Hebron Cemetery there. His father's name was actually Johann Jacob Hurr.

Venita Hurr Foster wrote a book called Climb with me my family tree, which was donated to 30 genealogy centers in the US. That is where I got photos of Jacob Hurr 1 & 2, and also Semira Winn.

I don't have any photos of Malvina besides your headstone photos.

RE: Samira Winn Hurr
I usually transfer when requested. Unfortunately, Hurr is my maiden name, so I would like to retain this memorial.

However, I have not found a direct link to Samira on my family line. Please send more info on her so that I can determine if there is a relation to my Hurr line. If she is not in my line, then I will be happy to transfer her memorial page to you.

RE: Douglas Irby Winn
hi carole. yes it appears we are absolutely cousins. thomas' sister myrtilla was my g-g-grandmother. apparently there are letters that survive between the callaway mo family, the fleming, ky family and the urbana ohio family. i'm trying to find burial location (surely in callaway co., mo) for douglas (d.1853) and elizabeth (1877).
there's a sad story about our cousin harvey rawlings jr. i would explain but its best if you google it up.
i appreciate your comment on burial unknown's (BU's). they should be treated better by the system. you may have seen my bio, says don't bully me about BUs.
always nice to hear from a cousin. hope you find thomas' site without any troubles. regards, t.g.

RE: Zelbert Prewitt/Fred hawkins
Regarding your question on place of burial for Zelbert Prewitt, in doing our family research we have encountered several situations where we could not find a marker in the cemetery for a person but the death certificate showed the person was buried there. We have always relied on the certificate. If his death certificate shows he is buried at Bethel Baptist that is how we would list it and note there is no marker.

Have a good day.

RE: Gertie and Grundy Hawkins
You are very welcome. I am working the Ky. Genweb project to photograph and transcribe cemeteries in Anderson County, so the information you and others gave was a tremendous help in recording the burial in our county.
