Many Alexander researchers believe that 7 brothers (and two sisters) came to Virginia/Maryland from Ireland in the 1660s. Some settled in Somerset County MD.
It has been stated variously that their father was the Rev. James Andrew Alexander (1620 ? Ireland - 1704 ?), or it was William Alexander (c.1614-20 Ireland - ?), either of which may have married Mary Maxwell.
Has any researcher out there come up with definitive answers to the various theories? I would appreciate any leads for finding the correct set of information. Thank you ahead of time for any response. Stephanie
