First off, I congratulate the Alexander family for five colonial Ivy League students.
I am looking for information on Alexander Alexander who graduated from Benjamin Franklin's College and Academy of Philadelphia (today's University of Pennsylvania) in 1765.I can trace an Alexander Alexander to Charleston, South Carolina at approximately this time who taught school there and joined the Sons of Liberty in the 1770s.I am wondering these two people are the same???
I am doing research on College and Academy alumni and their contributions, thoughts, sentiments on the American Revolution.Any information you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
In addition to Alexander Alexander, there are the following other Alexanders who studied at the College and Academy of Philadelphia (today's University of Pennsylvania):
1.James Alexander studied there from 1752 to 1753.A James Alexander was responsible for his tuition money.
2.Robert Alexander studied there from 1753 to 1755.A William McIlvaine was responsible for his tution money.
3.William Alexander studied there from 1759 to 1760.Alexadner Alexander was responsible for his tuition money.
4.Adam Alexander studied there in 1763.James Alexander was responsible for his tuition money.
If anyone has information on any of these Alexanders and their roles, writing, letters, sentiments on the American Revolution, please let me know.
