Your list of siblings for Robert caught my eye. Archibald McBROOM (1791 Kirkoswald -1860 St. Quivox)married 1820 to Helen ROBERTSON. Children that I have include: John (1821), James (1822), Elizabeth (1824), Sarah (1836), Gilbert (1838), Hugh (1839), William (1841) and Margaret (1843). There were at least 4 other children. Archibald was the s/o Gilbert McBROOM and Elizabeth THOMPSON. I have determined that John and Margaret imigrated to the USA -- Margaret probably abt 1860-1865, John probably earlier. They settled initially near Pittsburgh, PA in Chartiers Twp. Most of the children were born in St Quivox, Ayrshire; Sarah was born in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire.

Does any of this information match up with your family information?

I have a gggg grandfather - Hugh Alexander, born in Glasgow, Scotland 2/22/1728. Married to Agnes Mclelland in Dailly, Ayr, Scotland in 5/6/1766, arrived in USA c 1775. I have no information on his parents and would love to continue the search. Any connection?

I'm looking for Hugh Alexander Jr. who had land warrents in Lewisburg, Greenbrier Co., Virginia (now West VA) in 1790 & 1801. He married Ann Dean Nov.6, 1792; had a son William in 1801, sold all his land in 1803, and went to Tennessee. Could he be connected with your Hugh?

Don't think that Hugh Jr. is related. Hugh Sr. came to New York about 1775.

Thanks anyway.

I have no idea whether he was the signer. Based on the message after my query, I don't think I can claim him.
