  • Notes 
    • Alex was born on a farm near Round Top. He attended grammar school at Round Top and Ellinger and high school at La Grange. After graduating from high school, he attended Capitol Business College in Austin. After completing his coursework there, he went to work for Scarborough and Hicks Co. in Rockdale and later for Woodall and Morse in Taylor.

      In 1895 he returned to La Grange where he was employed by the Schumacher Bank. He became a member of The von Rosenberg Company where he was at various times a secretary, bookkeeper, and manager. In 1929 he left the company to become a cashier at the Schumacher Bank, but the work proved too strenuous. His doctors advised him to resign. He did, then taking up his former position at The von Rosenberg Company.

      Alexander was a member of the Casino Club, the Gesellschaft Club, and the bowling club. He was also a Democrat. He enjoyed hunting and fishing, especially in his younger days.

      While visiting his mother in San Angelo, Alex became ill. He was admitted to the hospital, was treated for phlebitis, and was released after responding to the treatment. In the elevator on his way home, he was stricken by an embolism and died immediately.
