Alexander fam., 1870 Fayette Co.

Does anyone have any information on anyone in
an Alexander family in Fayette Co.?

I am told that my Alexanders were in the Washington Co.
area (Giddings) some time between 1850 and 1890.
But, I cannot find them in 1870 in Washington or Lee Co.
So, I am wondering if they may have been in Fayette.
In particular, I am looking for info on the family of
Martin Franklin Alexander.

Martin had two wives, Louisa (or S.) and Galetha.
Louisa's last name may have been Murphree or Murphy.
Galetha's last name at the time of marriage was
Harrison (but this may have been from a previous
marriage). A Susan Kellough is also found in his
household, but I am not sure of the relation.
May have been one of his mother-in-laws.

Martin and his family lived in the Evergreen area
of Washington Co., TX, in 1850-1860. Martin shows
up as "M.T. Alexander" in Lee Co. in 1880
(possibly the same house... Lee Co. formed from
Washington Co.).

Any info on Martin in 1870 would be appreciated.
