Your post caught my attention because I was told that one of my second cousins middle name is Seaton after a family name but noone knows where it came from.I am not very far on my family tree but was wondering if you heard of these Alexanders.This is the story I was told.
My Great grandfather James Alexander was from the Northern Ireland area and married Rosa Green from England (around the early 1900's).He had a brother named William Alexander who married a woman the family didnt approve of due to religion and the moved to Canada never to be heard of again.James and William had 5 sisters.I only have four of their names, Mae, Elizabeth, Martha and Sarah.Most of them I am told never married.James and Rosa moved to the Decatur Ga area where my grandfather William Alexander was born in 1920.His siblings were Ruth born in 1917, Alice Elizabeth aka Betty,Sarah and James.My grandfather married Virginia Owens and they had seven children.William Ronald, James Edward (My dad), Caroline Ann, Catherine Susan,Pamela Ruth, Charles Robert and Michael Howard.
The 2nd cousin I mentioned with the Seaton name was born to my grandfathers brother James and his wife Janet. The cousins name is Martha Seaton Alexander.(I hear this family is still waiting on the Alexander China they were to receive for naming their daughter this.)I have lots of relatives from the Decatur Ga area that I wont go into right now.Does any of this sound familiar?I am looking for info on James and Rosa right now.THANKS!
