Information on Alexander Rhea

ALEXANDER REAGH [WILLIAM] p29p24) Alexander Reagh:[William] Likely the fifth child of William and Elizabeth. He married Mary Crockett, Augusta Co, on 04 Dec 1782. By 1788 he was in Bourbon Co, KY. By 1799 he owned 200 acres on a branch of Tradewater River in now Hopkins Co, KY. He was a wheelwright. Known children are -- Eleanor and William. William's wife was Mary. He owned a mill on the Tradewater. In 1818 he was a co-administrator of Alexander's estate.

[Perhaps by coincidence in 1818 the James Rea family arrived in Hopkins county. Eleanor (Ellen) Rhea married John Wilson. Note the reference to the purchase of the Calfpasture property from Wilson. James named one of his sons John W. Rea. (Wouldn't it be interesting if the initial stood for Wilson!) James' son Starling Rea had contact with this family. He purchased the Tradewater property from the heirs (at a very early age) and he was buried in the Rhea-Wilson cemetery. John W. Rea left KY and moved to Rea, AR... and died there. I saw a query about Rea, AK and a "Wilson Rea" from KY... it was common for Southerners to go by their middle name so it is possible...]

[Alexander has two know children but no James... and by James' birthdate he is in KY - ldr]
