Have you seen "The Greer Family" by William Greer Peck? It has 2 pages on the ALEXANDER GREER family. It does not contain DoBs for ALEXANDER, ARTHUR and WILLIAM GREER. What is your source for these? The author believes that ALEXANDER lived in Garvaugh, Londonderry Co., Ireland and that only his sons came to America. It does not give his wife's name. ANDREW GREER first married RUTH KINCAID, dau of JOSEPH KINCAID and second MARY VANCE. If you have not seen this reference, I would be willing to send you a copy of same.

My 4-great grandfather was ARTHUR GREER who died in 1776-1777 in Rowan Co., NC. He may have been the son of ALEXANDER. Family tradition names a JOHN GREER as father of the next generation of children with the Philadelphia, Augusta Co., VA, and Mecklenburg Co., NC route but I have found court evidence that it was ARTHUR and not JOHN.
