Dear Joe. My Alger Line emigrated to Rockport, Ohio (now in Cleveland area, Cuyahoga Cty.) on June 7, 1812 from Litchfield county, Ct. I can't go back any further. Nathan Alger Sr. is the father wife unknown His sons: Henry Herman Thaddeus Nathan, Jr. His daughters: _________? m. John Kidney Amelia, m. Benjamin Robinson (bad reputation) _________?
I don't know the relationship, but a Horace B. Alger arrived in Rockport a few months after Nathan, Sr. These are so many Alger men between Nathan, Sr.'s sons and Horace, you could be descended from one of them. Lorraine is near Cleveland isn't it? if you find more on Nathan, Sr. let me know.My line is Nathans daughter (possibly Sarah) who married John Kidney.
