Robert C. and Elizabeth Alexander died in Hendricks County Indiana. There are many tax and land records for Robert in the Hendricks County court records that prove his presence was there. This Is not the Robert that married Elizabeth Crist. They died in Fayette County, Iowa and they are a different line. Their known children were Nancy Ann, Susan, John Franklin, Mary Jane, Abraham Clay, William B., Elizabeth, Robert J. and Moses Alexander. Robert was last seen living with his daughter Mary Hauthorn (Ancestry has her as Henthorn) in the 1860 census at age 83. Elizabeth was 82. We do not know when our Robert and Elizabeth died, but it was before 1870.
Elizabeth Crist, over in Iowa was 81 at the time of her death in 1877 and her Robert C. was 68, at his death in 1862. The children of the Iowa Alexander/Crist line were Desire, Hannah, Catherine, Noah, Sabra, Elizabeth, Emeline, Martha and 3 males born in the 1830's. Very much a different family.
If you trace the Robert Alexander in the Joseph Lowery Alexander, Margaret Tate line in actual records then sadly, he does not work either. The names/ dates/ places are just not there.
