  • Note:
    FHC gives a source which say she was b in Scotland in 1726. On June 26, 1726, she was christened at Bathgat, W. Lothian, Scotland. This is connected to the signers of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence, some claiming some were her brothers.

    The signers were: Abraham, Hezekiah, John McKnitt, Col. Adam, Ezra, & Chas all ALEXANDERs.

    It is said that she was a sister to two of the men that signed the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence.

    Elias and Joseph were brothers, sons of Andrew ALEXANDER. Joseph Alexander married an unknown and had Agnes Alexander. Elias Alexander married Sophia and had William Alexander.

    William ALEXANDER married Agnes ALEXANDER--they were first cousins. William and Agnes had children: Adam, Charles, and Elizabeth. William's will only mentions son Adam. It is thought that Adam had a brother Charles. Charles was known to be the brother to Elizabeth--hence the connection of our Elizabeth to the other Alexanders.

    There are many ALEXANDERs buried at Hopewell Presbyterian Church in NW Charolotte. Some signers were from Cecil Co., MD, others from Somerset Co., MD, and others from Accomac Co., VA.

    Mecklenburg Co. was established in 1762.
