      Looking for info on George ALDER who married Elizabeth KEECH on 16 Dec 1729 and who died 28 Aug 1737 in PG County. George and Elizabeth had 4 children: James (b. 1730), Bowles (b. 1732), Ruth Hawkins (b. 1735), Mary Lindzy (b. 1737), all from St. Johns, Prince George, MD. After George died, Elizabeth remarried to Joseph Green SIMPSON, and she died in 1786. I would like to know the parentage of both George and Elizabeth (KEECH) ALDER. Did George own land, and if so, did he inherit it?
