I have noticed several sources recently reporting that Mary Steele was wife of James "the Weaver" Alexander. However in research reported in "Alexander Kin" by Virginia Alexander there is a will dated July 12, 1717 filed in New Castle Co. Del., Book C Vol I, P. 103 by James Alexander that names wife Mary, father-in -law John Steele, yeoman of New Castle Co. Del., brother Francis Alexander "Weaver" of Cecil Co., Md.and sons John, Joseph and Francis. This appears to be the James "the farmer" Alexander married to Mary Steele and he was a son of Samuel Alexander the brother of James "the Weaver". In deed book 5 p.97, Cecil Co., Md. dated April 1, 1735 records James Alexander and son Moses, and Mary wife to ye said Moses selling a part of their land to William Sample. On page 235 of same book James Alexander releases to his son Moses the remainder of the tract purchased by them from Thomas Stevenson.Thus it appears James"the weaver" father of Moses Alexander was still alive and well past the date of 1717 when James the husband of Mary Steele died. I haven't checked these documents myself but this all sounds reasonable. Does anyone else have any thoughts on this?
