The Memorials of the Earl of Stirling and of the House of Alexander, Vol. II, p. 135, offer this sketchy bit of history:

""William, son of [Capt.] John Alexander of Enagh and Caw, succeeded his father in these lands.  He married, and had three sons, Samuel, John, and Robert.

Robert, the youngest son, emigrated to America.  Refusing to join the party who contended for independence, he returned to Britain.  He afterwards sailed for America with letters of recommendation from Charles James Fox; but the vessel was lost at sea, and he perished with the other passengers.  He married a Miss Wilmot, an American gentlewoman, and two of his sons became judges in the United States."  Is there any information on these two sons or their descendants?  And if there is, where can it be found.  The Rev. Dr. Charles Rogers gives no further details nor does he give the first name of Robert's wife, the Miss Wilmot in question.
