Sue,
You need to provide more info. When and where Alex was born and anything else you can add i.e. parents and or sibling names, where they may have lived other than just Scotland or Ireland if you know this. There are a multitude of Alexander Stewarts out there. I have some in my tree.
So providing as much info as possible will perhaps help someone help you in your search.

Hi Sue,
If you could give more information about "your" Alexanders's lineage, that would be a great help. I have four Alexander Stewarts in my tree, two born in Scotland and two born in Illinois! Will be glad to try and help!
Take care,
Ginger Vaughn Spires

I am having trouble sorting out the mystery of Alexander. I have his father as James 4th Earl of Moray. The birth dates for a couple of Alexanders are the same. Many family trees I have search also show him as the son of James. Others say he was of the Stewarts of Appin. Does anyone know the difference?

Alexander, the 5th Earl of Moray, was born in 1634 but died in 1701, so not the Alexander in the original message of the years 1635-1731. The Stewarts of Appin were descendants of Alexander, the 4th High Steward of Scotland. There most likely were other Alexanders within the Appin Clan but the 4th High Steward is the one you hear most about.

The original Alexander inquiry in the 1st post...it seems that Alexander was most likely born in Appin Scotland and died in Marlboro Massachusetts. His parents are named by many to be Alexander and Helen Campbell but I have them having only a single child, Duncan. The Alexander who married Hannah Templar seems to be the son of a Daniel Stewart but Daniel wasn't a common Stewart name in Scotland. So I think over the years there has been a mixing of information here among Alexander Stewart, Helen Campbell, their parents and birthplaces. I am only finding family trees with their information and nothing from reliable sources such as birth records, marriage records, etc. that would indicate who is who. Susan do you have any definitive information on Alexander from records other than family trees that we can begin research from? If we can pinpoint that down, it would be helpful as the only things I find are from unreliable sources and one set says Alexander given the years you state was born in Ireland or Scotland and moved to Mass and another set saying he was born in Mass and died there...both sets married to Hannah Templar but all sorts of options for various parents.
