I may have reason to believe William James Alexander and Amanda Jane "Jenny" Wallace are distant relatives to each other through the MacDonald/McDonnell family tree, but I am in need of help to fully finding this out.
Here's what I have and know:
William James Alexander is the son of Hugh Alexander, Jr and Ann Dean.
Hugh Jr. is the son of Hugh Alexander, Sr and Margaret Elder.
Hugh Sr. is the son of Robert Alexander Sr. and Esther Beard.
Robert Sr. is the son of William "The Corpulent" Alexander and Jean McNutt.
William is the son of Thomas Alexander and Marion Peadie. Thomas left for Ireland because of Rump Parliament and I'm not sure what exactly that means.Somewhere along the way and lines This Alexander branch becomes part of the MacDonald family, possibly through Alexander Carrach MacDonald, son of John of Islay MacDonald and Princess Margaret Stewart, daughter of King Robert Stewart II.
Alexander Carrach's brother John "Iain" Mor married Margery Bisset through the McDonnells of Antrim descend from.Lady Mary McDonnell, a descendant of John Mor, was the daughter of Alexander McDonnell and Helena Burke.
Lady Mary McDonnell as a result married John Miller, Esquire and they had Alexander Miller who married Jane Evans.One of their children, Jane Miller, married John Wallace and had numerous children one of which was Jane Wallace, my fourth great grandmother.
I'm looking for information regarding the Alexander/McDonald family though.If there is any help I'd love to have any that can be given.I've done all I can to find as accurate as information as possible and it gets harder going backward considering records weren't always kept so well.Thanks for any and all help!
