This family settled in/early founders of Great Cove Ayr, Fulton County, Pennsylvania (Amazing historic stories/books, settlement, War, Indian Battles) & Early Alexander land patents. This Jacob was the father of many, (uncertain of number),one daughter was , dau Martha(b.abt 1737), Polly(b.abt 1740, d.Aft 1791), Margaret(b. Abt.1742 d.Aft 1791), Hugh(b. Abt 1747, he participated in the Revolutionary War and many fights with the Indians, much written about him), Isabel(b. Abt 1750), Susannah Susan'(1749-1825) who married on 8 Jul 1772 in Mercersburg, PA, John Shannon(1743-1825) Lastly, Jacob's first born son was William Alexander(1734, Down, Ireland - d. btw Nov 1818 - 10 Feb 1819 Great Cove Ayr, Beford, PA) William was married three times, First wife Unknown and third/last wife's name was Susannah. William's second marriage on 14 Nov 1770 to Isabel Alexander (1735-1780,possible cousin of Wm), produced many children, one of which was the subject of this memorial: Jacob Alexander(1779-1851). Some of his siblings included(mentioned in his father's will); Andrew Alexander(b.1786) & William Knox(1782-1829), also, Cairns/Carnes(1778-1838), Isabel(b.1780), Sarah Ann(1784-1867), Susannah(1784-1831), & John Allen Alexander(1788-1870) and 1/2 siblings Hugh Alexander(b.1767) & Mary Alexander(1769-1843). In 1809 Jacob married Susannah Morrison(1791-1861). They were parents to: Isabella(1809-1895), Esther(1812-1869), William(1812-1875), Ann(1813-1893), David(1816-1863) & George Washington Alexander(1819-1902). In my search for this family's ancestry/history, I have come across some very informative sources/history/info. One of which is a land patent to Jacob signed by President John Quincy Adams. I Googled Jacob Alexander and found there is a book entitled; 'Ohio Genealogical Quarterly' in it is a story/bio entitled, Jacob Alexander And some of his Decendants (pg 461), By William H. Hannah. Also very informative on this family is, THE HISTORY OF FULTON COUNTY PENNSYLVANIA, www.pa-roots.com/beford/history/historyoffultoncounty.
