Daniel Dulany, Jr. (1750–1824), had come back to America to try to settle problems arising from the confiscation of his family’s estates during the Revolution. He sailed for England a few months later, never to return to his native land.
This Alexander was either Philip Alexander (died c.1790), son of Gerard Alexander (d. 1761), of the “Robert” Alexanders, or Philip Alexander (b. 1742), son of Philip Alexander of the “Philip” branch. The second Philip served Fairfax County on the committee of safety (1774) and in the House of Delegates (1777).
