I am seeking information about an Alexander (some trees have the nickname Alie) Oothoudt who supposedly married Mary “Polly” Ann Burgess Priest (I believe in Wisconsin) probably around 1856 and had two children with her, Florence Josephine (1856, Wisconsin) and Jonathan Daniel (1859,Kenosha, Wisconsin). Polly married again in 1861 to a John Griffen. I see this Oothoudt/Burgess marriage on many Ancestry trees but don’t see any sources. In the 1860 census the children are given the last name Priest and Alexander is not listed. Does anyone know anything about this Alexander? There is an Alexander Oothoudt in the 1900 census living in Faribault county. Also, Some of Polly’s children (including Florence Josephine, who married a Smith) end up in Faribault, MN, which seems to have a lot of Oothoudts.
