Note:I have all of my ancestry that is known, including my daughters and grandson, in the Genealogy Book that was prepared by Charlotte, NC, folks.The front cover of the book has a nice emblem on it and has "Mecklenburg County North Carolina 1763".The proper name is "Heritage of Old Mecklenburg Co., NC, 1763-2003."It is not just for the Alexanders but various people who came to the county early on. I spent over $600 for all the articles that I put in the book including 3 copies of it.It is about 8"x14"and almost 2" thick.
Hopefully, many libraries will have the book in their genealogy section.
Your Abraham's line goes to 1 or 2 of the 7 Alexander bros who emigrated to MD about 1660 or so.They lived at Raphoe, County Donegal, Ulster, Ireland.Their mother came with them to America and she was Mary (Maxwell) Alexander. We think her husband was William Alexander of Scotland.The family was one of many Scots who migrated to Ireland for some land to work at low rents.They emigrated to MD when 20 years expired and those whose lands they rented wanted a high price to renew the leases.
You are connected to many well known folks like Senator Richard Shelby of AL, James Knox Polk, 11h president, etc.
