    • "Harriet Shelby and Alanson Alexander had no children. They lived and
      died at Rocky River, North Carolina. Mr. Alexander was noted for his
      long prayers at service. He was deliberate and quiet in manner. Mrs.
      Alexander visited her relatives in Tennessee before her death. Harriet
      Shelby (with her husband and other members of the Shelby and Alexander
      families) is buried in Sugar Creek Cemetery, near Charlotte, North
      Carolina." (Source:"Lineage and Tradition of the Family of John
      Springs III" by Caroline Isabel Poole Jones)

      and her husband are valued treasures of Mrs. John Rawls Jones of
      Tupelo, MS. Mrs. Jones also has a daguerreotype of her great
      grandparents, William Taylor and Mary Shelby Alexander."
