  1. I really hope that we're able to find the answer someday! I do have a clue from Alexander's brother Hugh's Civil War records. It stated that he was born in Breck/Brick county. There is a Breckinridge County and a Bracken County in Kentucky, so I'm thinking that maybe we should focus there and see if we can find them. :)
