    Does anyone reading this have any links to Geraldine Nutt Mozley, who was John’s wife? She wrote a book “Letters to Jane from Jamaica, 1788-1796” and mentions a picture of Alexander Mackenzie “born between 1770 & 1779,
    a handsome youth in a green coat and powdered hair, whose portrait in
    oils(of the English school) is in my posession”.

    I have a considerable amount of information about the Alexander Mackenzie family from which my husband was descended
