Event1815Alexander Balkcom III; Researcher Clifton reports that Alexander and Ichabod Balkcom moved from Johnston County, North Carolina to Jones County, Georgia in 1815. According to Clifton, Alexander had come down earlier to Oglethorpe County, Georgia, then returned to NC, and later came to Jones County with Ichabod. Clifton further states that "Alexander later moved to Alabama and is the progenitor of the large contingent of Balkcoms there, but Ichabod stayed in Jones County. He is the progenitor of the Balkcoms in Georgia." Note that many of the Balkcoms in southeast Alabama descend from James E. Balkcom of North Carolina, relationship to the Ichabod line and to the Alexander Balkcom lines unknown. However, Alexander did have a number of descendents in that part of the state.22
