Hi Nicky,
Very difficult to verify info on children because your Alexander MacKay married Alice Green in 1876 and an Alexander MacKay married an Alice Stott in 1878, therefore having children born in the same years ...

Thank you so much ngaire! Yes I believe this is My Great Great Grandfather. He was a fairly wealthy man when he died, as i have his last will and testament. Family stories state that he was drunk and disorderly often. The witness, Hannah Leaming, mentioned in article where he sued John Featon, is my Great Great Grandmother! Fantastic! Thanks again :-)
