My great-grandfather Charles Alfred Alexander had siblings and /or cousins who left Massachusetts for California in the 1940s & 50s. I am not aware of their names, and am having difficuty obtaining them, as my grandfather (Charles A. Alexander Jr. b.1926 New Bedford, MA) has Alzheimers. I have been told there was some sort of falling out and contact was lost.
Here is what I do know: Joseph Alexander married Angelina King in approximately the 1880s, they had a son, Charles Alfred (my g-grandfather). Charles married Elizabeth Love King, who on July 18, 1926 gave birth to their only child, Charles Jr. Charles Sr. died in 1953 and is burried in New Bedford, MA... his wife was laid to rest at his side in about 1962. Charles Jr. married Irene Andre on May 24, 1952. Their first child, Karen Love Alexander was born on July 8, 1953. It is rumored that one of the "California cousins" gave birth to a female child around the same time.
I am Karen's daughter. We would love to find our lost relatives and complete our family tree. Any info greatly appreciated.
