I have three original Cabinet Card photographs of Alexander ancestors of Lancaster Co., PA, which I would like to get back to family members.All three photos were taken in Lancaster (Lancaster Co.) PA.
The first photo, of Martha Alexander, is identified as “Martha Alexander (also Martha Woolman) – my aunt”, and under that “Marietta – May 1890.”The photo matches the types of photos taken from 1887-1892, so the May 1890 date is certainly correct.Martha looks to be about age 34-37 in the photo.
The second photo is of “Anna Mertie Alexander – 12 yr. old – June 1896”.
The third photo is of “Marian A. Alexander – 2 yrs. 4 months – Dec. 1896”.
I found this family in the 1900 census for E. Donegal Twp. in Lancaster Co., PA, with father “Hamil”, born May, 1867.Wife was Martha, born Dec 1855.Children: Edith (Aug 1880), Mertie (May 1884), Hamil B. (Sep 1889), Lilian (Mar 1891), Marion A. (Jul 1894) and Janet A. (Jun 1896).In 1910, the parents are no longer listed, but the head of the house was “A. Mertie”, age 25, with sisters Lillian, age 19, Marian, age 15 and Jannet, age 13.
