notes:
     His Ancestry.com page. I haven't found him on Find-A-Grave though my cousin thinks this one is his, but the death year is way wrong, which could happen! And they would have used it too rather than paying for a new one. It has 1866 for the death year but you can see Alex in 1870 and 1880 census records with his kids still. Oh well. Maybe it was supposed to be 1886 (since that is when the documents seem to stop). Easy enough to mix up the 8's and 6's, especially if the handwriting was bad. An incomplete 8 could easily look like a 6 if the top loop wasn't closed, making 1886 into 1866.
 
     (1998) The last paper I have that Alexander wrote was a rental agreement dated November 25, 1884 for the time period of January 1, 1885 to January 1, 1886. As with all his other documents he tore off his signature at the bottom when the contract was fulfilled (easier to make the contract void/null than to keep another paper with it saying 'I fullfilled that'?)...Royal pain that he did that but there is almost always enough of the signature left to see that he signed it.
 
     (1983) There are a variety of documents, notes, and some pictures, that were handed down through the family in an old cedar chest that was Alexander's. Mostly nothing of genealogical importance other than his name and a date being on them. Some of the papers do mention other names (wives, children, in-laws, etc.) which helped in placing those around him in this life. I will try to get them scanned and up on the website when I can!!
