I am looking for information about Henri Alexandre. He was from France. I guess this is a common name in Northeast France. He was born in 1818.After arriving in Mobile, on August 2, 1842 he married Marie Barbe Pierre from Lorraine France (Moselle, d. 57, Ville-au-Montois).
Her parents were Jean Francois Pierre and Anne Marguerite Pizelle.
Henri and Marie had at least four children, William D. (1846-?), my gg grandfather, John Henry Alexander (1849-1916), Mary (1851-?) and Julia (1853-?).Henri died in 1854 probably in a yellow fever epidemic.His son, William D. probably died then too.His widow, Marie Pierre remarried Henry Mallory of Virginia and they had 7 or 8 more children (Louisa, Tillman, John Joseph, Adrian, Laura, Margaret, Norah, and Irene)
His son John Henry who lived in Mobile, married Mary Frances Bennett and had nine children, Godfrey Weir, John Henry, Nathan, Sue Hallie, Mary Frances, Mollie Brown, and one Clifford and Scholes who both died young. Marie Pierre Alexander Mallory is listed in the 1880 census with her family but I don't know when she died or where she was buried.If anyone has any information about Henri or his children, please let me know.
