Hello Alexander researchers,
Here is some more on this family.

Supposedly seven Alexander brothers emigrated from Scotland to America with their minister. One came via Londonderry, Ireland with 3 sons.

They settled near Frederickstown, MD. Descendants include Prof. Archibald Alexander of Princeton Seminary and Prof. William Alexander at Presbyterian T.S. in S.F.

I can't find a Frederickstown in MD but there is a Frederick, Frederick Co., MD. I wonder if this is what is meant by Frederickstown in a book published in 1888.
