  'Rossiana' reports that Alexander had 7 sons + 6 daughters by his 1st wife and "a numerous family' by his 2nd and that "At present it is impossible to decide on the maternal descent of all of the following sons". However, by identifying George as "probably eldest son of second marriage" 'Rossiana' has given a strong clue regarding the named sons.
