Just found your message. My parents have been ill for quite a while and this snow storm in Cape has afforded me some time to return to genealogy. I have copied most of Samuel B.'s probate, and my Alexander owed a huge amount to the estate. I just don't know of he was a brother to Samuel or nephew? Did you have Robert in Lauderdale co., AL in 1830? How did you find Robert as Samuel's father? I'll share my working theory if so.
