I am a descendant of James Alexander, a weaver of Somerset and Cecil Co. MD.He died in New Munster area of Cecil Co. after 1740. He is descendant of Robert Alexander who was born in 1610 in Stirling Scotland.Robert married Mary Hamilton who also was born in Stirling Scotland in the 1600's also. My Alexanders came from Scotland-Ireland. I have alot of info on them. Will be glad to share if you think we are kin. There is a well established tradition that seven brothers, Presbyterians from Scotland who had adjourned a while in the north or Ireland, probably at Raphoe, Co.,Donegaland Sligo, Co came to Somerset Co. MD before going on to Cecil Co.
