I will answer here and also try your email. The notice Genforum sent to me said the email would not work?? Any way you did not give any birth dates but I'm sure your husband C.T,is the son of Charles Barton Alexander born Jan 1898 Iowa . "Bart "was the 5th of 8 children. My Father ,Clark Taylor, was the 6th child born 1895 His family on his Mother Lucy Barton 's side goes all the way back to 1637 in America to Rufus Barton b.England. (This line is on the internet.) Just this summer I visited Rhode Island where Rufus ,along withRoger Williams, Anne Hutchinson and others were the first colonizersof that state.. The Alexander line has been much harder to trace . Just to find proof ofCharles W'sFather and Mother took a lot of searching. however the US censuses on Genealogyand others are constantly improving . I finally "found" the family on an 1880 census in Mason city Iowa. The Father is Arthur 42 a Carpenter b. Englandand the Mother Sarah 37.b. England(still not sure of maiden name) Your husbands Grandfather Charles W. is 19, followed by a son Taylor, 19a son John 11, dau.Ruth Anna 9,dau. Mabel 7, Dau. Alice 4 and Laura 1. .I hope some other Alexanders from Arthur and Sarah'schildren as well as "our " line from son Charles w. and his wife Lucywill help fill out this line.I believe your husband Charles T was born the same year as I . If so we better hurry up with our research before time catches up with us!!!
