Alexander was my great grandfather. I am the daughter of Alexander’s son William who was just 2 when his father was killed in the line of duty. I recently started the journey of my ancestry and have been doing lots of research! I found relatives through this reflection and intend to search for them.
May my great grandfather rest in peace!
