I am looking at this line and believe that the Alex C. Kirksey I am researching right now may be the son of William Henry Kirksey of Lawrence Co. TN in 1840's. Several of the sons of Gidion are in Gibson or Lawrence Co. early 1800's and Wm. H., and Jesse appear to be in Lawrence Co by 1840's. Alex C. may have had a brother Andrew J. Kirksey, who married Mary E. Moore, dau. of Lewis Moore, in Lawrence Co. TN in 1860. Alex C. Kirksey and wife Mary (Pillow) are in Lauderdale Co. TN 1880 and have a son, Henry age 17, b TN. In 1870, Wm. H. Kirksey age 7 and sister Laurena, age 5 are in household of Lewis Moore, Andrew's father in law in Lawrence Co. Andrew Kirksey, Alex C. Kirksey and his family and Lewis Moore are all close neighbors in Lawrence Co 1860. I believe the young William Henry Kirksey is my gr grandfather that has been so elusive for 10 years and was in Fannin Co. TX 1887-1895.
Yeaterday i found Lewis Moore in 1880 in---Fannin Co. TX. Now my question is---was Wm. Henry (b. abt 1863) son of Andrew Kirksey and Mary Moore or of Alex Kirksey and Mary Pillow??
I'm at the FHL in SLC now and have been trying to find everything I can on this Kirksey family in West TN and Middle TN.
Are there any opinions on any of above??
