Seeking information from the descendants of the ALEXANDERs of Kosciusko Co.!
George M. (W.?) ALEXANDER. George ALEXANDER is buried in Palestine Cemetery, Kosciusko Co., IN, with the following information on his headstone (according to Lester Binnie's Cemetery Records, Vol. V): George M. 1867-1948 (arrows on the stone point to his 2 wives, one buried on each side of him) Inez, wife of George, died 16 Sept.1902, age 34-6-26 Bertha 1871-1933
In the same row, buried right before the ALEXANDER plot are William H. EILER and his wife Ellen. Ellen EILER's maiden name was ALSPAW (ALSPAUGH), born in Henry Co., IN 1837, she was 1st married to James R. ALEXANDER, also of Henry Co. James and Ellen ALEXANDER are recorded in the 1860 census of Henry Co., IN, residing in the household are the following:
ALEXANDER, James, 23, born in IN ALEXANDER, Ellen, 22, born in IN ALEXANDER, Leonadus, 2, born in IN ALEXANDER, William, 4, born in IN James ALEXANDER enlisted in the military during the Civil War and died at the battle of Cedar Creek, VA. In the obituary of Ellen (ALSPAUGH/ALEXANDER) EILER, 2 surviving sons are listed (besides her children from her 2nd marriage), Leonadus and a G.W. ALEXANDER. Leonadus ALEXANDER is my line and I have been trying to find ANY clue about the mysterious G.W. ALEXANDER! Is the George M. (W.) ALEXANDER buried after Ellen EILER ALSPAUGH/ALEXANDER) that missing son? Binnie's Records of Palestine Cem. show George's birth as 1867, which would make my assumption WAY off, but is it wrong? The other possibility is also buried in Palestine Cem.: Gilbert W. ALEXANDER 1860-1912 (could the information I have on the 1860 Henry Co. census be incorrect and the William listed was 4 months, not 4 years?). Buried with him are a couple of children and his wife Sarah C. WARREN, died 08/04/1891, age 30-01-06.
