Information I have is this:
Alexander Estes, born in Tennessee in 1822 or 1823. Moved to Illinois around 1830. Married Sarah Haley on 8 Mar 1846, had 12 children; James R (1848-1873), John Alexander (1852-1951), America Estes (1852-1864), Charles (1853-1929), Joseph Columbus (1857-1957), George W (1859-1933), Eugene (1861 - ?), Sarah M (1862-1863), Lui J (1862 - ?), William (1865-1887), Julia (1868 - ?) Edward (1870-1954).
Alexander was a farmer, and he also could have been a scout for a short period of time.
Looking for information on his father and his grandfather.
Thank you for your help
