I am searching for information about a family living in Quinter, Kansas after the Civil War. They are the people of my husband's grandmother, who died in 1998. Her husband just recently passed and in his desk we found notes she must have made years ago listing her relatives. Her mother was Jennie McElroy and her family is pretty well documented. Her father was Alfred Gilmore Young Alexander. This much I knew and no more, except that Eleanore was born in Quinter, Kansas and the family moved to Orlando when she was a child.
From these recently discovered notes I found that one of Jennie's brothers, Joseph, also married an Alexander: Mary Isabel-perhaps from the same family? They had at least 6 children, which gives me some hope that someone else out there has more information on this family of Alexanders.
