Alexander C Britton 1795-1864 Amanda Avery

Alexander C Britton
Born 9 Jun 1795 Newport, Cheshire, New Hampshire
Parents:  William Britton and Mary (unknown surname)
Married 1) Amanda Avery 24 Jan 1820 Fearing Township, Washington, Ohio

Possible Problem:  There has been a Phoebe Coffin listed as Alexander's second wife here: http://boards.ancestry.netscape.com/thread.aspx?mv=flat&m=3648&p=localities.northam.usa.states.massachusetts.counties.bristol
According to my research, it could not be this Alexander because the man that married Phoebe Cotsin 22 Mar 1838 in Stueben, Indiana, was named MURDOCK ALEXANDER BRITTON.  

I found Alexander in the 1850 Census - with all the children listed below.  His wife was listed as "Sousanna" in that census. Could "Sousanna" be a mistake in extraction for Amanda?  Yes, but it could be another marriage so I've listed it as such.     

2) Susanna (unknown surname) who would have died pre-1856
3) Rachel Soule 18 May 1856 Steuben County, Indiana
Children:  William, Jane, Lydia, John, Phoebe, Alexander
Died 19 Oct 1864
