Notes for Alexander Rudder:
As per Tom Rudder

Will Book #4, Item 257a, 16 April 1799, Estate of Alexander Rudder: Edward Rudder again; shows wife Elizabeth, Benjamin, Robert, Samuel & Alexander (Jr). It does not list any daughters, but does list Jesse Penn, Tho. Taylor & parks Bailey who receive money. They could have been husbands of the daughters. A John Rudder was also listed but in such a way as to make me think that perhaps he might not have been a son.

As per Tom Rudder He believes this Alexander is the brother & not the son of Samuel Rudder.

Although the pension of Epaphroditus lists Alexander as a brother. The will of Epaphroditus does not. I have chosen to believe he is the brother of Samuel and list him as so, assuming the pension records are incorrect. - Mary Rudder Chaisson.
