Col Alexander is my 4th Great Grandfather. My research tells me he was in command of a regement during the Revolutionary War. But I have ran across an article which states that there were two Alexander Lawson Smiths at that time and both were in the war. They were also born and died about the same time.
Can anyone shed some light on this. Alexander is my Patriot for a SAR submission.
Do not know which two these might be. If you would send your doc in to firstname.lastname@example.org will take a look. Were both of them supposed to be from Prince William Virginia?
I believe I have sorted this out. A application for membership was filed and accepted contining the wrong information. Have continued to use it. The SAR was notified some time ago. But incorrect information is still being made available.
One Alexander Lawson Smith was born 1742 in Prince William Co. VA. He died 24 Jan 1801 in Maryland.
Another was born 1742 in Berkeley, West VA. and died 1814 in Berekley Co. W. VA
Another was born 1740 in Berel;eu W. VA and died 13 Feb 1810.
