Re: Samuel Ware Family

In Reply to: Re: Samuel Ware Family by Robert Alexander of 657

Most of this information listed looks correct according to my research. I will add a few facts and would be glad to share more information by phone or email. John A. Alexander had his leg amputated after the battle of Olustee,Florida which resulted in death, according to info in Nancy Emily Weir's widow's Pension application. I interviewed Priscilla Alexander's niece(daughter of William T. Alexander) a few years ago and she provided me with most of the info I have, including two hat boxes of genealogy on the Alexander's, Wilson's and other surnames, gleaned from many years of research. The rest was gathered at the Ga. archives, Jackson County courthouse and other sources. Family tradition has it that John Alexander was buried next to the RR near Lake City, Fla., and the marker in the cemetery is only a marker, not his true grave. I descend through Priscilla Jane Alexander, who married my gggrandfather, Thomas J. Fields. I have most of the dates of birth and death for most of the people listed. I have a photo of the Alexander home where Nancy reared her children. I have an original photo of William T. Alexander and a painted portrait of William T. Alexander and his Wife, Callie Mae Johnson. I have two family bibles that belonged to Callie Johnson Alexander dated in the 1880's. I have letters written in the late 19th century and early 20th century from different family members. Samuel Weir was probably the first blacksmith in the Athens area. Martha Elizabeth Weir was born 12Mar1829 and she married John C. Barber. I'm rambling because I don't remember all of the info you have posted and just wanted to fill in a few blanks for you. Anyone serious about exchanging photos and info are welcome to email me at fieldsrussell@aol.com.
Thanks
