Hi Shirl, Boy am I late in answering your reply or what?My apologies.Yes I did finally figure out who the parents of Gracie Alexander were. A dear cousin sent me the info as it tied into our grandparents Bibber families.Thanks so much however for telling me that Eli Merriman Alexander's parents were Thomas A. Alexander.I have been working on this line for some time now as my grt. grt. grandmother was Abbie Ellen Blanche Alexander b. 1849 in Brunswick, ME daug. of James Alexander and Sophronia Rideout.Thanks again for your help and reply.I would appreciate Any info you might have on the Alexander's, and I thought the Allen's were hard to keep straight. I can't even find the correct Alexander links.Thanks again.
