I am looking for more information on the father of a John Joseph Alexander born Feb. 1862 in E. Guillembury Twp., York Co., Ontario. John married Eleanor Potter born Jan 6, 1863 in Scarborough, Ontario. They were married Nov. 26, 1883 in Chapman Twp., Parry Sound Dist. Ontario
John and Eleanor had 12 children: Archibald, Henrietta, Charles, Lorn, John, Annie, Ethel, Thomas, Roy, Eleanor, Ernest, Bertha.
John's father was John Joseph also.According to a census record he was born abt. 1800 in the USA. Unfortunately, I have not been able to narrow this down.(I was told he was born in Ontario, Ontario Canada, or Ontario County, NY??) He married Sarah Hicks who was born Sept. 18, 1831 in England.I believe John was married prior to Sarah as he would have been in his 50's before he met her from what I have been told.
John and Sarah had 7 children: William, Eliza Jane, John, Mary, Anna, Rebecca, John.
If this family sounds familiar I would love to hear from you!!!
