Hello, I have written begging info. before. I did get some responses, but I wonder if some kind soul who might have an answer, or lead, or advice, would mind checking again their ALEXANDER records, if any, for a Phillip ALEXANDER who d. 1794 Kent Co. DE. He lived in Ducks Creek One Hundred at the time of his death. Have been trying to find him on tax lists with no success, the same for the 1790 Census. He is said to have served in the Revolutionary War, no luck there either. Lots of Phillip ALEXANDERs from VA, MA and NH, but not my Phillip.

According to his estate property list (he d. intestate, darn him) he had a son David, a dau. Rachel and another dau. Susannah who had preceded him in death. Apparently there was a widow as there is a sum of money given as the widows mite (share?).

David ALEXANDER b. 1789 DE, my gx3 Grandfather eventually migrated to OH where he served in the War of 1812. He m. Elizabeth CUNNINGHAM dau. of Nicholas and Anna MORRIS CUNNINGHAM in 1816. They then migrated to Wayne Co. IL where David d. in 1845 and Elizabeth in 1861.

Many thanks.
