Have looked and looked ,some went to America in 1830-40's from Antrim do not know if from the same families.

Have a "Morton" married to an "Alexander" but would assume that was your link.Found a Stevenson from Templepatrick area but before 1700 and a Robinson also a Porter but nothing seems to fit............

time will tell Chris

Steve,

Thanks for that info. I will put it on my list. I will let you know if I spot a link in the chain. There are many families with the surname Alexander.
