Looking for information on JAMES ALEXANDER and his family in Scotland. JAMES ALEXANDER married SARAH WALLACE about 1765 or so and lived in or near Newry, Ireland. They had one daughter SARAH WALLACE ALEXANDER born 1768, probably in Newry. Mother died soon after (1768 - 1778?); and JAMES ALEXANDER is said to have gone back to Scotland leaving daughter Sarah with her maternal grandmother SARAH WALLACE. When her grandmother died she went to live with her uncle WILLIAM WALLACE at Loughbrickland, near Newry. In 1784 she came to Philadelphia hoping to connect with her CUMMINGS aunt and uncle. Her relatives having died she married CHRISTOPHER RAYMOND PERRY of Rhode Island. Her son Commodore OLIVER HAZARD PERRY writes that he met one of his Alexander cousins (in the Royal Navy) while on cruise in the Mediterranean in the early 1800's.
