93 Jeep Cherokee No Crank

She died electrically one day on me, First I replaced the battery which was due to be replaced, with the fresh battery she lasted about 6 hours and then left me stranded. After getting her back to my house apon crank I could only hear the fuel pump and the starter winding, so I directed my attention to the alternator. After replacing the alternator the engine would turn over almost completely without catching on. This period drove me mad replacing spark plugs fuel filter distributor rotor, but now nothing when I crank the only thing that chimes is the fuel pump I took the started off and had her tested which came back positive. Is it possible that I killed the ignition switch, and if so what would you direct as the culprit for the lack of a start.

Possibly the neutral safety switch if you have an auto trans.
