Alexander Craig

Query by Jimrudin

I am looking for information about Alexander Craig (born c. 1834, Scotland). Apparently, he was married to Mary James(?) (b. 1840, Wales, UK) and they had 6 children: Mary (b. 1864), John (b. 1865), James (b. 1868), Sarah (b. 1872), Katie (b. 1876), and Alexander (b. 1879). The family resided in Fort Ann, NY, USA for at least 21 years. Alexander (senior) drowned in 1880 in Fort Ann. The information I am looking for is as follows: lineage of Alexander in Scotland, 1860 and 1870 census info for the family, confirmation that "James" was indeed Mary's surname, and any other "tidbits" I can gather.
