My GGGGrandfather was Alexander Keay who died June 25,1849 and was buried in St.James Cemetery, Liverpool, as Captain Alexander Keay aged 62 and his gravestone also includes three sons who died at sea - David (1834), James (1837) and Thomas (1839). I have been told that the gravestone was removed to a plaque(?) in Liverpool Cathedral. I am trying to locate where Alexander was born and whether the records give any further information about him. My father was born in Liverpool in 1901 and emigrated to canada in 1924 where he died in 1962.
