Mary Jane Shores

Autobiography of Mary Jane Shores

Mary Jane Shores, born 4 August 1831 in Litchfield, KY, was my great-great-great grandmother. She married George Washington Alexander, Sr. (b. 1808 in Lincoln Co., TN) on 4 Nov 1853 in Lincoln Co., TN, and died in Dallas, TX on 2 Dec 1911. This is her story in her own words.

Her brothers were in the CSA and were from Mulberry, TN (although according to Pat Zadrowski, a descendant of James, they enlisted in the 21st Mississippi Infantry in Charleston, MS). Apparently so were a large number of others -- a picture of the Confederate Memorial in Mulberry is here now, following a day trip to the area recently.
