Perhaps a link may be the Robert Alexander connection as well.
On my posting re the Chancery Court papers of 1769 on the death of Robert Adair son of Alexander & Christian Adair, one of the names was Robert ALEXANDER.
In the Moore records - "Gen. Moore was married to a sister of Gen. John Adair, of Kentucky, he had many children. Several years after her death, he married Mary Scott, widow of James Scott and daughter of Capt. Robert ALEXANDER.He had 2 children by his 2nd wife: Lee Alexander and Elizabeth.He was a member of the House of Commons as early as 1788 and served for many years with great fidelity. It was noted he was not related to the Col. John Moore, son of Moses Moore, who lived about 7 miles west of Lincolnton, and commanded the Tory forces in the battle of Ramseur's Mill.
General Moore died in 1836 at the approx. age of 77.He is buried near several of his kindred in Goshen graveyard, Gaston Co NC."
In the Maryland Archives, The Upper House, Assembly Proceedings p.235, Dec. 3 1708 there was a petition of Alexander Frazier & Sarah his wife relict of Thos. Sterling (Starling) dec'd. on behalf of Christian Sterling (Starling) of Calvert Co. his dau. and heiress re mortgage on "Majors Choice".Trustees, Col. Wm. Holland, Charles Carroll, Richard Dallam and John Mackall were appointed. The Lands were to be expressly named vizt "Starling's Nest" and sent to the Upper House by Col. Holland.
Parents of Thomas Sterling b.1680 Calvert Co., Md, d. 18 Mar 1705 were Thomas Sterling & Christian Dalrymple. He had married before 1703 in St. James, Calvert Co., MD to Sarah Stallings, and they had dau. Christian Sterling b. 1703 who eventually went on to marry Dr. Alexander Adair.
