      Wills NC A; 53 "She was unmarried. Her sons named in her will were Ezekial and Hezekiah Julius.
      Dept of Archives, Raleigh NC (C.R. 65010) is found a document dated 1821 in which Elias Alexander, Sr., gave to Joel Alexander, Excutor of Kezia Alexander (his sister) $120.00 to be used for Hezekiah J. Alexander, (Kezia's son).

      Hist Alex: "In 1821, the court ordered Elias Alexander's sons pay to Joel Alexander Executor of Keziah Alexander, deceased, the sum of $120.00 in full of an allowance in a case of bastardy with the said Keziah to be to the use of Hezekiah J., the illegitimate child of said Keziah Alexander and charged by her to be begotten by the said Elias Alexander."
      (Hist Copies issue - Archives and History, Raleigh, NC., C.R.65.020)

      Marylander's pg 4, "Hezekiah Alexander Jr.: In 1818, there are records that Hezekiah, Jr., and Kezia came to an agreement that he would board her and her son Julius (Hezekiah J.) Alexander for 5 years for $25.00 and there is also a record that in March 1818, Hezekiah Jr. paid Samuel Glen for schooling for Julius. It seems that Hezekiah, Jr. looked after his sister and later in 1826 took Julius as an apprentice to the joiner's and cabinetmaker's trades. Undoubtely to serve under him.
