Notes for Alexander Cleveland, Sr.:
Geneaology of the Cleveland Family by E.J. Cleveland; page 2054-2055

Alexander Cleveland the ancestor of the Clevelands of Virginia origin, was born evidently in England, probably prior to 1620, and may have remained in England, but it is generally believed by his descendants that he came to America, and settled in or near Prince William county, Virginia. There is no record of his death, nor his marriage, the name of his wife is unknown. Had at least one child. Alexander, Jr. born about 1659, either in England or Virginia. Alexander' locality in England has not been discovered. Concerning him no authentic record is found, and it is not definitely ascertained which of the two was the immigrant ancestor from England, He or his son Alexander, or whether they both came in company. The early shipping lists or list of immigrants to American ports do not mention the names of any Clevelands. It may prove that he was the Mr. Cleveland of Loughboro, County of Leicester, England, stated to have accompanied, prior to 1629, the Skipworths of Cotes, and Henry Herrick, 5th son of Sir William Herrick of Beau Manor Park, Loughboro parish, from England to Virginia, as already narrated in this geneaology. If this was Alexander Cleveland, he evidently remained in Virginia while Henry Herrick journeyed to Salem Mass., and was later a founder of the first church in Salem in 1629. There are Clevelands in VIrginia from old times. So closely do the southernCleveland in feature resemble the New England Clevelands that they have been mistaken to be near relatives of each other, and it is not unreasonable to conjecture that Moses Cleveland and Alexander Cleveland were brothers, or at least near kinship. Oliver Cleveland of Spring Valley, Albemarle county, Virginia in a letter to Hon. Jesse Franklin Cleveland, date, May 10,1839, said: "My father and grandfather were both named Alexander Cleveland. My grandfather lived to be 111 years old, and my granmother to be 103 years old. My grandfather was an englishman by birth". The descendants of Alexander Cleveland have taken a most important part in the history of our great republic.
