This post was made a decade ago. I have discovered some information on William Alexander. My great great grandmother was his 3rd wife (Catherine Perau Meyn) and this shows up on the 1980 census with only one child living with them--Gustav. She was not married to William in 1970 as I find her in that census with 3 sons (including my great grandfather John Henry Meyn/Mayne) and no husband. Cannot find her date of death nor can I find William Alexander's date of death. William's daughters Theresa Radant and Minnie (Wilhelmina) Mrs. Ed Schlukebier, who lived and died in St Paul MN.
