Thank you. Appreciate VERY much your information!
My wife and I are traveling to Scotland this Fall and will be visiting the Campbeltown Scotland area in hopes of finding some ancestry information. Just need some more definitive data to know "where to look" I have seen info on the Oliver Alexander and first wife Mary Craig --- think there could be a possible link with them as you indicated they did have a son John born 1766 -- could be 1769 too with the potential inaccurances of dates being transposed. I found a 4th cousin who did the Alexander DNA study and it was determined he was a 36 of 37 match for the Alexander's out of Campbeltown Scotland. My G-Grandfather was Robert Almon Alexander and in his funeral book it lists his grandfather as John Alexander ( 1766 - 1849)One source listed my John as born in Pennsylvania but no other details. Son Benjamin was born 1818 in Fayette County Ohio. GGG Grandfather John married a Elizabeth Hedly June 26, 1811 in Harrison County, Ohio. 1820 Harrison County OHio where my GG Grandfather was born. Last found him in the 1840 census (we believe) in Holmes County Ohio. In my GG Grandfather Robert Alexander's obituary (John's son) it states Robert arrived in Holmes County Ohio in 1838 -- seems a match there as well. Thanks again -- any other info as available appreciated.
