I have found quite a few family
trees on Ancestry for a Alexander John McLeod b 1879 and DIED in the USA in26
March 1964 with father John. Alex was married to Martha Lellaveve Cole
On the USA death Certificate it
has the information as John Alexander McLeod b27 Sep 1870 his mother as Agnes
Ross but the father as James McLeod.
Do you think this could be your
Alexander, if so I could look for more information.
Out of all the Trees some have
John McLeod born in 1854 Moray Scotland and there are a few that has his
father as James McLeod
Hope this helps

Looking for parents of JOHN McLEOD of ALVES who is listed as
the father of ALEXANDER JOHN McLEOD b. 27 Sept 1879 in Cothal, Rafford, Elgin
the apparently illegitimate child of AGNES McINTOSH ROSS b. 25 Feb 1856
in Hill of Burgie, Rafford, Elgin - the daughter of JOHN ROSS of
Rafford. Mother and child continued living in the JOHN ROSS
household. Have found much on the ROSS family and nothing about JOHN
McLEOD. Any help will be appreciated. Claude

Hello, Claude -- welcome!
This is an email list, not a site. You simply ask a question and hope
that one of the other helpful and knowledgeable people on the list will be able
to answer your question and/or point you to websites that may be of help to
One of the most important things to do is to make sure you have an appropriate
subject heading. So, if you want to ask a question about the McLeod/Ross
family, put the relevant surnames in the subject heading. If you want to
ask a question about anybody from Rafford, Moray county, put that location in
the subject heading. A proper subject heading should grab the attention
of people who are interested in or know something about that name or
location. And, it will also make it easier for people searching the
archives of this list in future months and years.
So, ask away, Claude (with a new subject heading) -- hope you have lots of luck
in your researches.

I joined this cite a couple months ago, and
actually have not been able to figure out how to use it. I am
particularly interested in connecting with people who are have family ancestors
in Rafford, Moray county. I have done rather extensive work and
have been relatively successful on the John Ross family. My wife's
father, Alexander John McLeod, was the son of John Ross's daughter Agnes
McIntosh Ross and on the birth record it says his father was John McLeod of
Alves. He was raised in the John Ross household with his mother.
Could someone help me understand how to use this cite?
