Mother*Margaret McKnitt3 b. 26 Dec 1693, d. 1736
Marriage* Principal=Mary Sample3 
Birth*13 January 1722 Cecil County, Maryland, USA; This birthdate is from the Hezekiah website, however, according to the Karchaske reference his gravestone states he was 78 which would put his birthdate laater in 1722 or in 1723.1,3 
Occupation*circa 1750 a blacksmith when he first moved to North Carolina, but later made his fortune as a farmer.3 
Emigration*after 1754 Maryland to North Carolina, USA; Principal=John McKnitt Alexander3 
Land*1 April 1767 300 acres on a branch of Sugar Creek, Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, USA; from his brother John. It was here that he built a large stone house in 1774 for his growing family. He lived here until his death in 1801. According to the Meclenburg Historic Landmarks Commission, "Architecturally, the Hezekiah Alexander House reflects the influence of the German emigrants who came to North Carolina from Pennsylvania in the 1750s and 60s. During that period several thousand families settled in Mecklenburg and the
adjoining counties. Many of those settlers constructed houses of native stone similar to that of Alexander's. They were quite similar in form to houses built by the Germans in Pennsylvania and the Dutch in the Hudson Valley. The Hezekiah Alexander House is one of the few surviving examples of this architectural type in North Carolina.

Exterior: The Hezekiah Alexander House was constructed of native Piedmont stone in a random pattern with oyster shell mortar. The walls are two feet thick. The structure is two full stories over a high basement. The front and rear facades are each of three bays with contour doors. The attic is lit by a pair of small windows in the west gable and one in the northeast corner of the east gable. The windows are six-over-six in configuration, all having batten shutters. Segmental arches were originally constructed over all windows and doorways. Those on the front and rear facades have keystones. Some of these arches were eliminated during alterations to
the house, probably at sometime during the nineteenth century. In the west gable there is an intersecting blind round window. The roof is now covered with asbestos
shingles; originally it was covered with cypress shakes. The wide overhang of the eaves is not original. The exterior dimensions of the house are length 36' 5" and
width 35' 5".

Interior: The present interior plan has one long room across the front of the house with an open stair in one end and a corner fireplace in the other. Originally there
was a wooden partition dividing the stair hall from the parlor. The present stair is a replacement from the original enclosed one. Behind this room are two smaller
rooms, a kitchen and bedroom, divided by a small passage leading to the rear door. The right-hand wall is one of a later date. Originally there were two rooms of unequal size on the rear. There are corner fireplaces in both rear rooms. The chimney breasts were originally plastered. There is a warming cupboard over the fire place in the right-hand rear room. This room must have been used as the
kitchen.

On the second floor there are three rooms and a stair hall. The wall between the stair hall and the room behind it is of dubious form and may not be original. There
are no fireplaces on the second floor. The basement is divided into two rooms of unequal size by a transverse stone wall. There is a stair to the second floor and an
exterior entrance in the southeast corner if the east room. All ceilings show exposed structural members. All of the stone walls are plastered on the interior. The other
interior partitions are composed of simple vertical wooden sheathing. "
