2.  1840 Census Index/Images (online at Ancestry.com, Image #107-108 of 118; extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen):
1840 TN Fayette Co. Civil District No. 14 Roll 521 pp. 160B-161A Ln. 16 Moses M Alexander 111 001 - 111 001 *00 no slaves 0100000
*It looks like someone put a "1" in the column, then went back and changed it to "0."
These data indicate:
No. & Sex Age Class Therefore Born Individuals Inferred
1 male 4 or under 1835-1840 = Uriah (b. 1840/1)
1 male 5-9 1830-1835 = Thomas (b. 1835/6)
1 male 10-14 1825-1830 = ?
1 male 30-39 1800-1810 = Moses (b. 1808/9) 
1 female 4 or under 1835-1840 = Narcissa (b. 1836/7)
1 female 5-9 1830-1835 = Mary (b. 1833/4)
= Eleanor (b. 1831/2)
1 female 10-14 1825-1830 = ?
1 female 30-39 1800-1810 = Mary Margaret (b. 1804/5)
1 person employed in agriculture
The fit isn't perfect, and the older children, plus the fact that Mary Margaret is several years older than Moses, make me wonder if Mary Margaret didn't have an earlier Marriage.  She was certainly old enough to be the mother of two children born before 1830.
