Here is something else worth looking into...

In 1880, curiously enough, Lewis' brother John W. Alexander is not the only John W. Alexander living in the fairly small and otherwise unremarkable town of Carterville, Illinois.
What are the odds?
If these guys aren't related in some way, I'll be extremely surprised.
And if'n I was a bettin' man, I'd put some money on John W. the elder being a brother-in-law to Bertha.
But obviously, more research needs to be done to confirm or deny this.
