An inherited collection of papers yielded the following original document pertaining to the Alexander family of Pickens Dist., SC, later Oconee Co., SC. The first part of the transcription can be found in yesterday’s post.

record in the clerk’s office for this county-

That there are no debts against the Estate
of the said James Alexander, decd.

That the plaintiff owns no other lands in

specific lines of [illegible] the said lands against any

That is the whole of the document in my possession. The entire proceedings, including its conclusion, should be recorded in the minutes of the appropriate court in Oconee County.

In addition to giving the location of lands owned by various members of the family, this document also provides solid evidence for connections between three generations of this Alexander family. My interest is primarily upon Elizabeth (Alexander) Watson and her children, Daniel, James, and Elizabeth, because of the situations under which Elizabeth and her husband each died.
