    • From the History of Mecklenburg County: from 1740-1790 by John Brevard Alexander
      Included in article re: to Governor Nathaniel Alexander, son of Colonel Moses Alexander, are references to Gov Alexander being one of the five sons of Moses Alexander. Gov Alexander, a physician by training, married Margaret Polk, a daughter of Col Thomas Polk and Susannah Spratt. Other sources say that Margaret was the granddaughter of Thomas Polk and that she was the daughter of Dr Ephraim Brevard.
      Another son of Col Moses was William Alexander who married Elizabeth Henderson.
      Information re: to birth and death of Governor Nathaniel Alexander and his wife Margaret Polk can also be found at www.findagrave.com. They are both buried in the Old Settlers Cemetery in Charlotte. Thomas Polk is sometimes cited as being "the founder" of Charlotte. He is buried in the Old Settlers Cemetery as well.
