PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS NOT THE ALEXANDER BROWN WHO IS RELATED TO SARAH NAKY,DRAGGING CANOE, JUDGE JAMES BROWN AND CHIEF JOHN BROWN. THAT IS A DIFFERENT ALEXANDER BROWN.

There are 2 errors on the gravestone and marker pictured. 1. His first name was NOT Isham. His son's name was Isham Alexander. 2. The stone says Cherokee, but that is unproved. Also: Alexander's nickname, Sawney, was slang for 'Scotsman.' His father's origins were Scotland. His parents names are unknown.
