    Gust Skordas; Early Settlers Of Maryland " most ALEXANDERhistorians or genalogist, have ANDREW married to ABIGAIL McKnight (McNitt),sister of John McKnitt, Sr. (McKnight ), and why his wife's name was left off, probably the records were not forrmaly writtne until the aft 1677 or much later and Anerew was not alive, when the birth records indicate that they had the two children born in Somerset County, Md., by the name of Abigail, b. 9-15-1677, and Elias(Eliers) as that b. in 2-26-1679.]

    Bill Alexander "ia'm sticking with Andrew Alexander marriage to Abigail McKnight (McN 1692 itt) sister of John McKnitt, Sr. ( McKnight ), and I found additional information in my Father's papers, and it doesn't change from the above. Until proven differently I "Hold" Dad says in a two sided mimeographed copy that " The parents of Elias were Andrew and Abigail ( likely Abigail McKnight ) Alexander in Aug. of 1972. "Ancestry of WILLIAM FIELDS AEXANDER, SR. LAWRENCEBURG, TENNESSEE, was dated June 6, 1967.

    Alex Note Books " Joseph Alexander was doubtless marrried twice, but the names of his wives are not of recored Tradition give the name of his first wife as Abigall McKnight (McKnite, McKnitt,Mcknitt) sister of John McKnight of Somerset and Cecil Co. His secod wife may have been a Widow Alexander; in fact she may have been the wife of Andrew Alexander of Somerset who probably died comparatively young Possibly she was (Abigall McKnight) or a sister of Abigall McKnight.

      Stafford, Alexander Note Books "The land in New Munster of James and Moses was known as Milford Hundred and was on the east bank of the Elk River adjoining David Alexander. In 1766 an old millstone bearing the letters I. F. had taken the place of the original cornerstone marking the boundary of James's and David's plantation. David and James evidently had land further to the east---bordering on Christiana Creek-- which they acquired from Stevenson under the 1718 deed. The New Munster land passed from James to his son Moses whose will of Feb 2 1762 passed it to his son Daniel. Daniel sold it to his uncle Mark Alexander a merchant of Baltimore in 1763. Mark sold to John Alexander a part of this original grant in 1772 (Cec. 14-92). This was witnessed by Amos, son of James, son of Joseph and his son Walter witnessed the deed. Stafford believes that with the exception of Mark of Baltimore all of the male descendants of James the weaver appear to have left Cecil Co. about the time of Daniel's sale and gone south---1763. (Stafford) (The John Alexander of Chester Co. Pa has died by 1772.
      The CharlMeck Story ". JOSEPH ALEXANDER is said by two students of the Alexander and McKnitt family records to have married Abigail McKnitt.19 She was doubtless a sister of John McKnitt Sr. (c. 1660-1714). In the Matthew Wallace and Company listing Alexanders he is the last named, "Joseph Alexander, tanner." He is of special interest to our story, because he was the paternal grandfather the John McKnitt Alexander, secretary of the Mecklenburg Convention of May 1775. The reason given by Thomas Stevenson for conveying the NEW MUNSTER tract to Matthew Wallace and Company is stated in the original deed of 18 May 1714. Title was conveyed to them because these lands "had for some years past been
      improved and possessed by them and had been divided amongst themselves, each man according to his holden [holding] and that the said Stevenson being minded to sell the tract of land, thought it most equitable, honest and right that they the said possessors thereof should have the first offer to buy or purchase each man his holden or division of ye same."20 Another covenant provided that Stevenson would give them each a better deed if they
      demanded it within the next seven years. By a series of eight deeds dated 15 August
      1718, he conveyed his interest in 903 acres to Joseph, James, David, Arthur,
      Elijah (possibly Elias), and Mary Alexander, and by two others he transferred to John Gillespie and Matthew Wallace, Jr., their respective holdings.21 One of these eight, to "Joseph Alexander, and his son James Alexander, of Cecil County and in the Province of Maryland, tanner," provides that "whereas JosephAlexander and James Alexander have by way of a
      swap restored unto Thomas Stevenson all and every lands with the appurtenancy thereof which they formerly bought of Thomas Stevenson, except 386 acres, the said Stevenson now conveys to Joseph Alexander ..." etc. George Johnston, in his History of Cecil County wrote:22
      "The lands conveyed to the colony of Alexanders embraced the northeast part of the NEW MUNSTER tract and extended from a short distance north of Cowantown to the extreme northern boundary of NEW MUNSTER, which, as before stated, was about a mile north of the State line, as it was located by Mason and Dixon fifty years afterwards."
      These lands were conveyed a few years later by "Joseph Alexander and James, his son, both of NEWMINSTER Cecil County, Maryland" to "Joseph, John, and Francis Alexander, sons of James Alexander, carpenter, and to Mary Alexander, relict of James Alexander, 316 acres, being in NEWMUNSTER, aforesaid, and bought by James Alexander carpenter aforesaid, from one Thomas Stevenson and confirmed by the said Stevenson unto the
      children and relict of the same James Alexander, carpenter ..." in conformity with "the last will of the aforesaid James Alexander, 18 December 1719."23 (Thomas Steveson had already turned over to James Alexander and his son Moses their appropriate "holdens".)
      When Joseph Alexander made his will 30 December 1726, he de-scribed himself as "tanner" and of NEW MINSTER in Cecil County. lt was probated 9 March 1730.24 Witnesses were Owen O'Donnel, Ann Taylor (the Widow Taylor), John Dale ["Irish"], and John McKnitt [Jr].
      Joseph named his son James to be his executor; made bequests varying between 10 and 40 shillings to his sonin-Iaw Elias Alexander, his daughters Sophia Alexander, Jane Muley and Abigail Claphan, and his son Francis Alexander; and Ieft to his son James the remainder of his estate.

      24 Cecil Wills AA-l, p. 222:

      There is a well established tradition that seven Alexander brothers, Presbyterians from Scotland who had sojourned a while in the north of Ireland, probably at Raphoe.Co., Donegal, and Sligo,Co.,came to Somerset Co.Md. before going on to Cecil Co. If we may judge from the circumstantial evidence remaining, then along with the brothers came two sisters: one, the wife of Matthew Wallace; the other Jane, who married John McKnitt.
      THE ALEXANDER LINE of Sterling Scotland The Alexander family of New Munster were orginally settled in Scotland. About the time of James I they ,together with a large number of Presbyterians,migrated to Ireland and settled in Ulster.During the latter part of the seventh centry several Alexanders migrated to America and settled in Cecil and Somreset counties, Maryland. There was an Alexander family in Somerset County as early as 1666. Also John McKnitt settled there about the same period(see Old Somerset,by Clayton Torrence).Joseph Alexander of New Munster married Abigail McKnitt and one of his sons was John McKnitt Alexander. Joseph Alexander,the founder of the famous Alexander family of New Munster, Cecil County MD,according to family historians,arrived in the Delaware River (probably Lewes or New Castle) on Ship "Welcome" Sept 21 1679 at the age of 40 yrs. He was one of "fifteen other gentleman" for whom Colonel George Talbot surveyed New Munster Tract in 1683. This Tract was located in Cecil County, Maryland,northeast of the village of Cherry Hill and extended north-ward into Pennsylvania. The cerificate of survey is as follows -"Laid out for him a certain tract of land called New Munster,lying and beginning in Cecil County on the main fresh of ElK River,on both sides of the said fresh,beginning at a marked poplar on a high bank on west side of the said fresh, and about a pistole shot to the mouth of a rivelett,called the Shure, and running west...containing and now laid out for six thousand acres more or less,to be held of the Manor of Cecil, which is hereby Humbly cerified to your Lordship,this 29th day of August,1683 by George Talbor Surveyor-General" (See Johnson's history of Cecil Co..page 133) On May 18,1715,Thomas Stevenson sold the tract on the east side of the Elk River,containing 1,100 acres,to Mathias Wallace,James Alexander,Arthur Alexander,David Alexander,and Joseph Alexander. The deed cites the fact that the tract conveyed to them had for several years past been improved and possesed by Wallace and the Alexander's. On August 15,1718,Stevenson conveyed nine hundred and three more acres to the Alexander's.The land conveyed to the Alexanders embraced the northeast part of the New Munster tract, starting a short distance above Cowantown and extending above the Mason and Dixon line. Josiah Alexander died March 1730,in Cecil County,Maryland. Joseph Alexander was the progenitor of six signers of the Mecklenburg Declaration of Independence:Hezekiah & John Mcknitt being sons of James:Col.Abraham & Ezra,sons of Sophia:& Col. Adam & Captain Charles,sons of William(son of Sophia). (see Daughters of the American Revolution Magazine,March 1952 Page 315) Ref:Skorras Early Settlers of Maryland Next record found of Joseph is in the deed by which Thomas Stevenson transferred to the above group, including Mary and Elias Alexander,903 additional acres in Mew Munster. This was done by seperate deeds,each being dtd. Aug 15 1718.Joseph's and James' deed was recorded Feb 11 1718-19(cecil,Book 3 Pg.199) James was one of the witnesses; he may have been either James the Farmer or James the weaver Names children Sophia,Jane,Abgail,and Frances in will"
