Samuel Alexander, was he son of Rev. James Andrew Alexander?Did Rev. James m. Mary Maxwell?I have that Rev. James d. in Ulster, Ireland, about 1704, and I have never before seen mention of who his wife was.Some say the 7 bro's "rescued" Rev. James Andrew Alexander from "something", and he might have been their minister rather than father.
Also, I had never known the maiden name (surname) of Samuel's wife, Mary.Has that been now established?
As an aside, James, whom you refer to as James B. (never knew his middle init), I think, had two Alexander women descendants m. into my line (Samuel's), and perhaps one Alexander male (John Alexander, s. James and Rachel A. The two women:Margaret, dau. of James and Rachel A. m. my 'uncle' Charles A. of yore.Charles A.'s son, Chas Grandison A., m.James' brother Stephen A.'s g-dau. Martha Wilson Alexander, dau. of Joseph W. and Margaret (Hope) Alexander.
3 of the 7 bro's, Joseph, Andrew, and Wm, produced Col. Adam A., son of Wm, gs of Elias.Col Adam's son Charles Taylor A. m. Margaret Means.They had daughter Margaret Means Alexander who m. my 'uncle' of yore Moses Winslow A., son of Daniel & Susannah (Shelby) A. of Meck.
If you can clarify the questions above, I would appreciate it.Incidentally, I had tried to contact you, Joanne, before, but the e-mail was returned.I used the same e-mail address given in the query; i.e., . Thank you very much for a reply.Kind regards, Mac Alexander.
