Smile Campbeltown Scotland Alexanders

Seeking information on Alexanders from Campbeltown Scotland. My GGG Grandfather John Alexander, born in Pennsylvania, USA -- was reportedly descended from Scottish ancestors. Recent Y-DNA results indicate my ancestors from Campbeltown Scotland. Looking for any information on Alexanders from Campbeltown that migrated to direct from Campbeltown to America or via Ireland.

Alexanders of Kintyre

I am a descendent of the Alexanders and so far have got back to John Alexander who was my gggg Grandfather. I think he married Mary Corner but not too sure about this as Johns first born William was born 21/6/1778 and I think Mary may have been born in 1764 which means she would have only been 14 at the time of Williams birth. John had another son - James, my ggg Grandfather who was born on 1/3/1780 and he married Margaret Muir on 20/2/1797. They had six children one being Alexander who was my gg Grandfather andwas born on 10/11/1805 and died in 1877 in Campbletown. This Alexander married Elizabeth Gilchrist, they had 5 children one being Alexander, my g grandfather he married Annie McPherson they had 8 children one being Alexander. This Alexander's had 6 children with his first wife and three with his second wife. Albert, Robert & Elizabeth. Robert was my father born in Partick 24/1/0/14 and died 19/2/2009 in Plymouth, Devon. Good luck with anyone tracing their Scottish Heritage. My husband hopes the Scots get independence so he can deport me back there!
