Harriett “Hattie” E Alexander was born on 9 Aug 1857 in Buncombe County, North Carolina. She married William N Young in 1878. During their marriage, they had six children. They were:
- Margaret Grace b. 1880 d. 1965
- William Ruthey b. 1881 d. 1904
- James Rogers b. 1882 d. 1932
- Rob Roy b. 1887 d. 1889
- Harold Alexander b. 1890
- Ruth b. 1892 d. 1915
The 1860 Census has Hattie living in Buncombe County, North Carolina. H E Alexander is listed as being 3 years old along with her brother Chas (2yo). Her parents are listed as Julius (38yo) and Margaret (24yo). Hattie’s father was a farmer with real estate valued at $6,000 and personal property of $300.
The 1870 Census has Hattie living in Limestone, North Carolina at the age of 13. Her parents are William Julius and Margaret E Moore Alexander. She is first of six children born to William and Margaret. Her father’s real estate was valued at $13,500 and he had personal property valued at $710.
In the year of 1878, Hattie married William N Young. This information was collected from Find a Grave as I have not found a marriage certificate. However, as further proof this is the correct date is the fact that Hattie’s first child, Margaret Grace was born on 9 Mar 1880, in Pulaski, Arkansas. Also, I believe this year of marriage is correct because of the 1880 US Census where Hattie (23yo) is listed as the wife of Wm N Young (47yo) with Maggie (3/12yo) being their daughter.
Harriett “Hattie” E Alexander Young died on 6 Jun 1895, at the age of 37. She is buried at Mount Holly Cemetery with her husband who died after she passed.
