    Alexander came to America about 1790, after his half brother WilliamSpe er. William came in 1772. One report has Alexander leaving Irelandin 1 785 and going to Canada "before he married".

    He lived with his wife Jane Fletcher in Elbert Co., GA., which was just across the Savannah River from his half brother William Speer's estaten ear Lowndesville, SC. Nine children by Elizabeth (or Rebecca) Wilsonwer e born in 1853, 1855, 1857, 1858, 1860, 1863, 1865, 1868 and 1872.This s econd family apparently lived in Ontario, Canada and some of themany gr andchildren lived in Chippewa Co., Michigan, USA.

    Alexander was a Methodist minister in GA and moved to Canada over thesl avery issue. His descendents live in Emporia, Kansas and St. Joseph,MO .

    This from Ed Speer:

    The reports suggest Alexander left Ireland in 1785 and immigrated toCan ada; about 1790 he moved to Georgia, USA where he married JaneFletcher ( ?-1852) and became a Methodist minister. After Jane's death in1852, Al exander left Georgia and moved back to Canada where he marriedElizabeth ( or Rebecca) Wilson and raised a new family.
