I want to post this to show some of the families connected to Gov Alexander Spotswood. This is a Kentucky court ordered will of his grandson General Alexander Spotswood who was married to Elizabeth Washington. Their son Alexander M Spotswood was married to Elizabeth Lewis a cousin of Meriwether Lewis. My great grandfather Jacob F Myers is in this will. I believe just about everyone listed is a relative one way or the other.
