Alexander McDaniel probably had three wives, although their names are uncertain. The only one known for certain was Catherine Wilson, the mother of Katy, Mary, and John.

There is little documentation for Alexander’s wives, but Strange’s list conflicts with other documents. Alexander was married to both Catherine and Mary Wilson who are named in both contemporary and later documents. He had at least one other wife.
