Facts and Events
Alexander McSpadden was one of the Early Settlers of Augusta County, Virginia
Alexander McSpadden appears briefly in Southwest Virginia records when he is mentioned along with his brother Samuel McSpadden:
There is an Alexander McSpadden, identified as the son of Thomas of Borden's Grant, who died in York County, SC in 1784, leaving four orphaned daughters, and who was in York County as early as 1774. According to one ephemeral source citing York Co. Probate Box 61, pk 2781, "Isabella and Alexander Malcomson" were identified among the estate admibnstrators, an Isabella was thought to be Alexander's sister. There seems to be no information that directly connects this Alexander to Thomas of Rockbridge. This same source also cites a record for an Alexander McSpadden in Greene County TN:
Possibly "1783" was meant; the tax list for Captain George Doughtery's Company does exist for that year, but does not include an Alexander McSpadden (or variant spelling) See: Genealogy For You
It seems unlikely that this could be the same Alexander McSpadden who died in SC in 1784, but Greene County is close to Southwest Virginia, and it may be that the later record is indeed for the son of Thomas of Borden's Grant.
Alternatively, the Alexander mentioned in the above record could be a son of one of the other McSpadden's in SW VA.
