The problem with the Alexander / Roger Cleveland lineage of Virginia has been studied for many years by Cleveland genealogists. There is no guaranteed lineage for this family after 1780. Reliance on family trees on the internet and Ancestry, even this one, is very sketchy as there is just not enough sources to verify these claims. What is ascertained is that ROGER CLEVELAND is the immigrant from England for the Clevelands of Blue Run, Virginia.
