I'm currently searching for information on Rev John Alexander born in 1703 in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. He was a Presbyterian Minister that moved to Georgia as a missionary some time around 1757. One of his sons was Capt Samuel Alexander, who fought in the Revolutionary War.
According to stories passed down through my family we are Scottish, and descendants of William Alexander the 1st Earl of Stirling, but as of right now I haven't found the connection. It would be very helpful if anyone know's who John Alexander's father is or any information that could lead me to find more information on the family.
