Vicki,This may be a stretch, but my g-grandfather has a brother William G. Alexander b. abt. 1856 in Linn Co, MO, a long way from Butler Co. He is on the 1860 and 1870 census aged 4 and 14. His father is also William G. Alexander, mother Mary J. (Seaman, I think). Other siblings George, David, Margaret, John, Jeremiah, Isaac, and Mary. His father disapears from the census in 1870 and William in 1880, although mother is still living with Margaret. I just found them last week and haven't really started to follow the descendants yet, so I may have missed him in the census.
