I have been reviewing my 'Treetops" recently and happened upon the thread titled 'Samuel Alexander from Scotland'. It may be of interest to you that my family research indicates that Samuel Alexander, my great great grandfather, born in Maybole, Ayrshire in 1835 and son of Samuel Alexander & Janet Stevenson (OPR Births 605/0040 0213), prior to his emigration, married Anne Goldie, my great great grandmother in 1856 in Maybole. Samuel had 2 daughters with Anne, - Ann, born about 1855 & Janet, my great grandmother, born 1857. I think Samuel emigrated together with his parents, sister Janet & brother Peter leaving his wife & 2 daughters in Scotland. He last features in the 1851 census in Scotland. His first wife, Anne can be found in every Scotland census until she dies in 1892. I would be interested in any info you can give me about his life in America.
