    7. [S752] Randolph County Indiana, unknown, (1913 ), Worksheet #271 (Reliability: 3), 15 Feb 1971.
      Daniel ALEXANDER, farmer, wife Sarah, moved from county of nativity to Preble Co., Ohio in 1823 and then, not long after, to Warren Co., Ohio.

      Son James b 8 Jan 1818, Warren Co., Ohio
      Was in Warren Co. as early as 1810 per land records so probably in Preble much earlier than 1823.
