1860 census says born New York
Eddie, I have a distinct memory of voting your answer up, and now when I come back it looks like you converted it to a comment.  I'm curious.  Why?

still searching for proof, Miss Julie.

I don't take credit for inaccurate work. cool

OK.  Too bad you can't convert a comment back to an answer!  But you can always post an answer when you find information that satisfies you.  smiley

his younger brother David lived with him.

Cross-referencing to find an Alexander and David born about one year apart in the same place.

New York has been eliminated

working Canada and Scotland
records in Ancestry for Alexander and David in Fife Scotland

no records for a David in Canada
Miss Julie, Miss Julie,

I am the X-Treme Kong

I am too OCD to ever be satisfied LOL

Anyhow, Fife Scotland seems to be it
not my connection
