Search Alexander City for 18th and 19th century Ancestors in Virginia

View of Washington DC from Potomac River
Alexander City flourished along the Potomac River during the early 19th century.  Today, this is called "the historic district of Washington, D. C."  The old residents consisted of political figures.  Among those names were member of the Washington family, James Madison, William Ludwell Lee, Thomas Jefferson and many others.  It was located in the district of Columbia during those years and some records were ultimately put into Arlington County.  If you even suspect that your ancestor was a politician or resided around Washington, D. C. the very historical wills and estates are available on Virginia Pioneers   To view a list of testaments found and posted on this website,  click here.  You are not going to find these documents elsewhere on the internet.  The discovery of the William Ludwell Lee last will and testament (from the famous Lees of Virginia) was a shocker, as his home residence was Jamestown, Virginia and those records were lost when Jamestown burned down.
