I'm researching a Leeka family in Thurman, Fremont County IA.I also have a Lucinda (Pool) Alexander that I suspect may be related to the Leeka's in some way.Do you know if your Reuben who was in Fremont County was related to the Leeka family there in any way?
I also have some info on Fremont County that shows a J. M. Alexander in Franklin Twp who had a boots and shoe business.
On the 1860 census I came across a Wm Alexander who is 32 and listed as a farmer. His wife is shown as Mary 34 and with them are Harriet-19, John M.-14, Wm R.- 12, Joseph-10, and Andrew-1.
A book on the history of Fremont County lists a Wm. H. Alexander, Private enlisted October 10,1861, discharged March 1, 1862.
Would you happen to know if any of these Alexander's are related to the Alexanders in Nodaway County MO?
