I have a Robert Alexander b aft 1600 W Mary Hamilton b abt 1600 son James Alexander b abt 1628 d 17 Nov 1704 w Mary Maxwell B abt 1628. That's where my lineage splits from the one you are tracing. James and Mary had a son Joseph b abt 1660 and d 9 Mar 1729 or 1730. Joseph married a Jane McNitt and a Abigail McNitt with Abigail he had a son James Robert (b abt 1695 d bef 31 May 1779. It gets weirder. James Robert married Margeret Abigail McNitt b 26 Dec 1693 d aft 1736. AND Abigail McNitt with each he had a son Ezekiel I born 17 Jun 1724 d aft 1778. II b 21 Oct1754 d 18 Aug 1832. Not sure that I believe that, but if I am reading it correctly and copied it accurately, that's what I have.
