Note from Helen: Although neither my husband nor I are descended from Alexander, Alexander's son John married my husband’s great-aunt Lizzie Gordon. In the course of my research into the Gordon family, I came across valuable information on the McDonnell family, hence its inclusion on the website.

Alexander married Ellen KENNY. Ellen was born about 1820 in Orlar, Kilmovee, Co. Mayo. She died on 3 Aug 1908. She was buried in Dominican Abbey Monastery, Orlar, Kilmovee, Co. Mayo.

Margaret Thompson (née Kenny), who is researching her Kenny family history, tells me of an Ellen Kenny of Orlaur, Kimovee, baptised on 28 June 1868 in Kilmovee, who may have been be related to our Ellen above. The parents of the Ellen who was baptised in 1868 were Michael Kenny and Catherine Doherty and sponsors were James Johnston and C. Johnston. Margaret came across this information on www.eastmayo.org/Kilmovee_Baptisms_1854_1910_and_1881_1913.htm.
