Hi Arthur, Thank you for your postings on the Alexanders from NH and MA. I'm sorry I've been so late in answering your postins. I appreciate your time and assistance. I have gone through all my holdings on the Alexanders but have not found anything on A Henry Alexander b. July 17, 1799 in Grantham NH. That doesn't mean he wasn't part of my ancestors relatives, just couldn't find anything on him. I will continue to look for him in my research. Do you by any chance have any documents from Woburn on Philup or Thomas Alex. They are my g5 and g4 grandfathers. Both were killed in the French-Indian war. One of Thomas' sons was Jabez b. 1755, he being my g3grdfth. Jabez and family lived in the Acworth-Lemster-Henniker, NH area for many years. I believe most of the family stayed in that area until later in their lives, my g2grdfth. Alvah b.1799 moved on with his family to NY then to IL and finally to UT with the Mormon movement. I am not a Mormon however most all of my paternal ancestors are. When I was 6 mo. old my father divorced my mother and I was raised and adopted by a Fowler. I have recently found many cousins descended from Jabez who have united to research the birthplace of Philip. Research has suggested that he came to America from Scotland or North Ireland but no proof has surfaced as to the port of call, ship name/Captain to America. His birth is assumed to be around 1690 making him 21 when his first child was born. Anyway, these new found cousins all have verbal stories from ancestors suggesting our Alexanders have indian blood in the family line. I, too have been told the same story. We believe there may be an outside chance that Phlip did not come from Scotland rather that he was brought to the Roberts house by a Squaw Wampanoag, well known Indian tribe in the MA area when the Pilgrims came to America. To make a long story short, it is theorized that Philip was the son King Philip's wife. King Philip was the head Satchem of the Wampanoag tribe at the onset of the King Philip's War and was killed in 1676/7. His father was Massasoit head sathem of the Wampanoag's at the time the Pilgrim's came in 1620. He was widely liked and was given the English name of Alexander. Later when his son took over about 1661, the Pilgrim's gave the son the English name of Phlip, hence the name Philip Alexander. I know this may sound a bit iffy at best but because our Philip just popped up out of no where, no ship manifest, no oath of allegiece, etc. we believe there may be a fairly good chance he was an infant Wampanoag. We have been spending much time trying to prove this theory. I think our next indeavor will be to tackle the early court proceedings for Woburn to see if there is anything suggesting an infant boy in the Roberts household or maybe even a squaw. Its an interesting thought anyway. I think I am beginning to ramble so will quit for now. Please keep in touch Arthur, and I'll let you know if I come across your Henry Alex. Thanks again for your help.
