My Great-great-great grandfather was Alexander Gordon born about 1785 in the Parish of Kilrea, Co. Londonderry, Ulster, Ireland. he married a Peggy Campbell and had their first child, John Gordon, about 1809 - an unknown dauhgter followed. They migrated from Ulster to South Plantagenet Township, Prescott Co., Ontario, Canada in 1818. Much of the family remains there or in nearby Ottawa, Ontario. A small group, grandchildren of the original Alexander, named Alexander, Mary Jane and a John migrated to Tawas, Michigan about 1860, John proceeded on to Vachon Island in Washington State.
