  • Notes 
    • Alexander’s first job was that of clerk at George Weyand’s general store at Nassau. There he met Emma Weyand, who would become his wife. After several years, he became employed by Knittle’s General Store in Burton. He then bought the Zapp store in Round Top, before selling the operation in 1900. At that time he moved his family to La Grange and bought the White Dairy. He ran this business as a dairy and meat market, then later as a general store. Later, he became successful at trading horses and cattle, and then real estate. It was from him that the land for the La Grange Fairgrounds was purchased.

      Alexander enjoyed music, especially playing the piano. Although an active Democrat, he never sought public office. In 1914 he became a member of La Grange’s St. Paul’s Lutheran Church. Late in high life it was necessary for him to undergo a delicate eye operation which likely hastened his death. [1, 4]
