See my Alexander family tree web page at the following address : http://homepages.msn.com/VolunteerSt/kd4tdn/alexander.html Includes the Earl of Stirling, Rev James, William in Maryland, Lamar Alexander in TN. I believe William abt 1715 , brother of Rev James, was the father for the first Alexanders in America. (not Rev. James) William Jr. was the first documented birth of a Alexander in Maryland. This complete tree (much more info) will be published on a Family Tree Maker web page soon. Good searching.
