1 This page is probably from the Bible of John McKnit Alexander and Dorcas Alexander
2 This John McKnitt Alexander is the grandson of Abner and Jemima (Sharp) Alexander and son of John McKnitt Alexander, Sr.

The DAR Library Patriot Folder for Ezekiel Alexander has copies of 4 Bible pages from 3 Bibles. Sheets 1 & 2 seem to be from a Bible belonging to James Alexander b ~1695, as children from both marriages are listed. It must have then gone to his son Ezekiel b 1754 and then his grandson son Mark (skipping Abner). The title page for this Bible is not in the DAR Library, but a copy is in my possession as are other copies of the 2 sheets in the Patriot Folder. It was printed in Dublin in 1739. There is also a Marriage page probably belonging to Abner Alexander’s Bible and this sheet appears to be from the John McKnitt Alexander (1853) family Bible who lived in Bastrop County, Texas. Also in the folder is a large (20x20) hand-drawn family tree of James Alexander b ~1695 and wives Margaret McKnitt and Abigail ?McKnitt?. This tree includes some maiden names & covers 4-5 generations and has since been moved to the map drawers of the DAR Library. The numbers identifying Bible pages were assigned by K Wykoff strictly for ID purposes.
