My Alexanders come from Dailly and Maybole areas. Hugh Alexander married Mary Orr in 1802.Their first son James was born in 1805 in Dailly. There was another son Hugh born in 1814 also in Dailly. James married Mary Muir in 1835 and after a few years in Paisley, Renfrewshire, the family moved to N.Ireland. I have never found where. Most if not all this family returned to AyrshireI believe James died in Ireland. My grandfather John Alexander b. 1848 in Ireland, married his cousin, Elizabeth Muir in 1875 in Maybole. Hugh Alexander married Jane McWilliamin 1845. John Alexander and his wife Elizabeth eventually move south to Wigtownshire.
