I've been reading your messages regarding 'Alder Family in England'.So, I thought you might not mind if I throw in my little Alder 'can of worms'.You seem to have more information on the Alders in England than the others.
I am related to a Robert ALDER, born 7 August 1777.The family history says that he was the descendent of an English Lord.Robert's father was said to have come to the US to escape conscription in the military in England.Apparently, this was viewed as dishonrable by his father and was therefore disowned. And then ironically, he and his wife were killed by indians.
Robert was taken and raised by the Indians.He was later able to find his way back to the settlements where he later married Elizabeth CLEVELAND. They had one son born 16 Jan 1814 in Oneida County, New York.His name was Simon ALDER.When Simon's parents (Robert and Elizabeth CLEVELAND)were killed. Simon was age 3 and was raised by an aunt and uncle - David and Amy CLEVELAND.Simon married Mary Hawkins and proceeded to have 8 children one of whom was my great grandfather John Resolve Waterman Forncrook!
My question is; Have you come across an English Lord whose son might have been disowned after moving to the US?I'm thinking that the rascally son may have left England about 1750ish.If this is not information that you have available from your genealogy data - please do not trouble yourself any further.I'm enjoying this genealogy stuff so much that sometimes I don't even care if I find anyone.The fun is in the hunt!!
Thanking you in advance, Sincerely - Cheryl Forncrook-Waldele Hillsboro, Oregon, USA
