Thank you Stan.
Clues may be found by examining the families that Alexander's children,
grandchildren, and great-grandchildren married into. Marrying into the
family's friends was a common occurance up to the 19th century.

Updated by Jean - 02/01/03
The surnames that married John's (brother of Wayman) children were
HORD, ALLEN, STEWART, HERNDON, BRADFORD, SMALLWOOD(?), MADDOX, WEAVER, PETERS, WILLIS, RYALLS, DULANEY, MOREHEAD, SCOTT, TRIPLETT, REDDING, BURBRIDGE, SMITH, BOYCE/BAYSE, WILLIAMS.
Do not know if this will help but thought you should see the names that are
involved in that generation. The most important surnames I feel are GRAHAM
and DOUGLAS. Those names go back very far in Scotland before our American
connections. In fact, if memory serves they are connected prior to

STAN'S NOTES ON ALEX'S CHILDREN AND THEIR SPOUSES AND CHILDREN:
You have pretty well covered Wayman's family except the Shirley's. I have
yet to figure out why his wife's name has not been discovered, when all of
Richard and Mary Shirley's other children seem to be well-documented.
Note from Steve [I have looked in my ship crossing sources and not found a single Shirley listed.]
Wayman married Hester Smallwood, a quite collorful character, probably after
his first wife's death.
JOHN SINKLER/ SINCLAIR: Only knowledge of wife is "Elizabeth".
Children largely follow the usual family names: William, John, James,
Robert, Daniel, Charity, Jemime, or Jemima, Sarah, Mary, Elizabeth.
ROBERT SINKLER: WIFE: Margaret. Nothing more available to date.
SARA SINCLAIR: Married Robert C. Colclough, aristocratic family (hanged for
incest). Children, Charity and Alexander (may have been named for uncle,
Alexander Colclough rather than Sarah's father.
MARGARET SINCLAIR: Married Francis Tennell. The Tennell family were
Hugenauts from Picardy, France, who came to came to America early in the
eighteenth century. Apparently Francis was a young boy at the time his
parents came to America, or was born in Virginia. One daughter, Cahrity
(NOTE: 3rd Charity).
GEORGE SINKLER: Married Winifred. No other info.
MARY SINKLER. Some researchers have equated her with Sarah. I think this
highly unlikely, since there seem to be seperate marriage records. Jean
thinks there may have been a marriage to Isaac Cundiff, but has not to my
knowlegdge documented it.
Mary married Edward Welbourn. Edward moved as a child to Virginia from
Maryland (another MD connection) , and later to NC, finally settling in
Surry Co. He wrote his will on 3 May 1806, leaving his land, money, personal
goods and slaves to his wife, Mary, and their four children, Richard,
Edward, Temperance, and Jane. His son, Edward, then living in KY, was to
receive $200 on his mother's death. The other three were to receive nothing
else. Edward had been married before, and left his children by his first
wife each one shilling.
ELIZABETH SINKLER: Married Charles Jones. No other info at this time.
PATIENCE: Married William Young, from the Aristocratic Younge line.
two children, William and Sarah.
[ (Further from Stan 01-13-03) You might note on the Pattersons three of Robert Sinkler's children married sibbling Patterson (Patteson's. as some spelled it). Robert Jr. married Lucinda aka Lucy, John married
Elizabeth aka Betsy, and Nancy married John Delafayette Patterson. The point
is their ancestry. They were children of Edward Taylor Patterson, who was
the son of William, son of Thomas, who was born in Scotland in 1657, and
immigrated to Virginia, where he died in 1765. Thomas may have come about
the same time as Alexander, since they were close to the same age.
Sarah St. Clair, daughter of John St. Clair, son of Isaac (son of Wayman)
and wife, Latitia Douglas, also married a Patterson, James Edward.
It is also ironic that the Scotland Young which you cross referenced was a
William Young, the same name as the husband of Patience St. Clair, daughter
of Alexander. ]
