No. Brick Wall.

Land Grant Alex seems to have been one of the pillars of Taylorsville, in Alexander Co. He died there. Left a will. Mentioned in town history, etc. No mention of sons wandering off to Indiana. Probably this is the man listed in the 1790 census. Seem to still be family there today, on a road with their name.

Wilson's father Alex died in Indiana. They were connected to Killians, Goldmans/Gouldmans, and others who made the same trip. Can find all of them in NC previously, but not Alex.

I have found other references to Alexander Mathewsons. One got off the boat in NY in 1774. I cannot track them all down to see how many separate individuals there were.

Feel free to email if you want to compare notes.
