Hi Evelyn

Thanks for your post. I amaware of the marker you speak of and photographed it myself back in 2002.

To find the Marker, Take Hwy. 231 North out of Montgomery into Wetumpka. Driving north of Wetumpka into the community of Wallsboro, turn right on Weoka Road. The Marker is near Thelma Baptist Church at 810 Weoka Road. This is about a mile off of Hwy 231 North.

What I am searching for is the location of Alexander's plantation or "ranch" way down upon the Little River. Alexander had many cattle and horses down there just north of the Tensaw Settlements.

I am trying to refine the location of that plantation. There are reports that William Panton, at the request of the Alexander's family, reburied Alexander at that site and erected a significant grave-marker with a beautiful tribute inscibed upon it.
