Several Epsom families moved to Alexandia, NH. Levi Berry, born in Barrington, NH, married Sarah Page of Epsom in 1793, daughter of Jeremiah and Lydia (Philbrick) Page of Epsom. He sold Epsom land in 1800, and is probably about the time he removed to Alexandria. Not much is known of the couples children, some of which were probably born in Epsom. Sons Jeremiah, Levi and James resided at Alexandria. Levi married Abigail Page of Epsom, daughter of John and Huldah (Locke) Page; Jeremiah married an unknown Sarah; and James married Lorana Fellows of Bristol. NH.

William Locke was born in Rye and moved to Epsom about 1790, owning three of the original home lots, and moved to Alexandria in 1811, though births of his children may place him in Epsom about 1780. His wife was Abigail Sanders of Epsom, daughter of John and Trephena (Philbrick) Sanders. Their son John resided in Epsom with wife Abigail (Locke) of Epsom; daughter Abigail married Jeremiah Page of Epsom and moved to Alexandria; daughter Huldah married John Page, brother to Jeremiah; William and wife Mercy Shaw moved to Alexandria where he died in 1829, a year after his father; Elizabeth, married John Langley of Deerfield and lived in Chichester; and Reuben, married Jane McMurphy and resided with the family at Alexandria.

John and Abigail (Locke) Locke had a son William, who with wife Louisa (Ferrin) resided at Alexandria, though his parents resided at Epsom where is mother died in 1809, and his father married 2nd, Mehitable Bickford.

There were ties between the Locke and Berry families with the marriage of Abigail Locke to Jeremiah Page. Jeremiah was a son of Jeremiah and Lydia (Philbrick) Page of Epsom. Nothing much is known of Jeremiah, though he did live in Alexandria where there is only the grave of his wife Abigail. His sister Sarah married Levi Berry; brother Daniel, married Betsey Sanders, daughter of William and Sarah Sanders, also resided at Alexandria. William and Sarah (Sanders) daughter of John and Trephena, also settled at Alexandria, where he died and she remarried to Joseph Verrill.

Jonathan and Mahala (Brock) McClary also resided at Alexandria, though did not move there from Epsom. Jonathan was a descendant of the Epsom McClary's, his father being William McClary, his grandfather William McClary, born Epsom in 1769, resided in Canada with his wife Isabel Dickey, he being a son of Maj. Andrew McClary of Bunker Hill fame.
