Moved to Texas the later part of 1870 and settled in Frio County, from there, to Johnson County, then to Caldwell County, and finally to Bastrop County, near Red Rock in 1886, where they resided the rest of their lives.

Note, I am running behind on all of my work on Culpepper, Lentz, MaGee, McCullar, and Alexander lines.  I hope to be able to upate this site soon.  Thanks for your patience, Russell Alexander, 07-04-2010

Who We Are

Decedent of the Alexander's of Caldwell County, and Harris, Culpepper's of Bastrop County, Texas. My grandfather was James Rufus Alexander, my grandmother Ruby Dimple Alexander (Culpepper), both buried in the Jeffrey (McMahan) Cemetery.

We are a compilation of Harris, Powell, Alexander, Goldman, Culpepper, Magee, McCullough, Sorrell-Sorrells, Lentz, Jeffrey, Borchert, Tally, Roberts, mostly of central Texas, Bastrop & Caldwell Counties. 

Most of these families migrated to Bastrop area 1840s-1870s. Our lines go back almost exclusively to Western European immigration, many lines immigrating very early in America's history. Our extended Tree has deep roots in early Colonial America, with several lines predating the American Revolution. 

The period my research covers is mostly 1633 - 1920.  At least half of our lines quickly migrated to the Old South after arrival in America, and then followed the opening of the west into Central Texas.  We have the deepest roots in Bastrop County, predating the Texas Republic, when there was nothing west of San Antonio, and only two massive tracts of land grants, the Stephen F. Austin Colony Territory, and the DeWitt Colony Territory, south of Austin Territory. 

Our distant lineage occupies a large percentage of two of the oldest cemeteries in Bastrop County, Old Red Rock Cemetery in Red Rock, and the Bateman Cemetery in Bastrop County.
