  • Notes 
    • Moved to California for the "Gold Rush". 1850 Burke County Census lists him as, "Alexander J."...Nita Shepherd.

      Note: It is more likely that his name was John Alexander. First child was often named after the paternal grandfather...DAH.

      And so, my grandfather's oldest brother was named Alexander; he died in California Gold Rush in 1852 and is buried in Yuba County, California. Note: Yuba County, CA... There re no records of "John Hennessee"...DAH [3]
