Alexander McINTOSH was a young boy when over 300 of his kinsmen were mowed down at the battle of Culloden in April 1746.

When Alexander became of age he entered the service of the Crown and was sent to America to fight in the 42nd Regiment under Lord Murray. The British were engaged in the Seven Years War fighting the French and Indians. On 8 July 1758 Alexander was severly wounded during the Battle of Ticonderoga. He was sent back to SCOTLAND to recover.

Alexander married Jennett (Janet who's maiden name is unknown) in 1761. They were parents of 8 children while in SCOTLAND. They decided to move to America and were living in the Mohawk Valley of New York when their son John was born in 1777. Jennett brought a small rocking chair to comfort her youngest child Marjorie on the voyage. This rocking chair is still in the possion of the family.

Alexander was a staunch supporter of the Methodist Church and was active in the affairs of the Grooms Methodist church during his life. He rests in the church yard cemetery. The Grooms Methodist Church was the 'Mother Church' for Methodist congregations in the area. The congregation dwindled and eventually the church was closed. The building was sold and used for other purposes. It was being used as a furniture wharehouse when it burned down.
