The Family History and Genealogy of

James Alexander


Mary Ann McNeil

  has been the subject of intermittent research by various indiduals and history groups spanning many decades. As it happens, their descendants are scattered throughout North America - found mostly in the United States with some remaining in Canada.

The late

Marie Genevive Elexander

, a grand daughter, of Sydney, Cape Breton Island, NS, had completed some early research. She had visited Wellington Centre, PEI and had taken some photos. Her personal papers indicate that she kept in contact with a branch of the family that had emigrated to Maine, USA. She also had knowledge of the two branches of the family that had emigrated to Washington, D. C., USA.


The Wellington Senior Citizens' History Committee

  had included a number of articles on the family in their book

By The Old Mill Stream


At present, research is very active and numerous family members continue to contribute to the Family Tree Database!

A public website is presented here; its contents have been limited to past generations in order to respect the privacy of living descendents. If you believe that you are a descendant of James and Mary, you are highly encourged to e-mail me and participate! Much more is available for family members!
