Evening Kate

I agree with Don's comments; but have you tried looking in the first three Crnsuses particularly, 1841, 1851 and 1861?

From information in the 1841 Census, it suggests that your fifth Alexander died around 1839.

Also, there is a possibility that as the health of older generations deteriorated, they may have lived their final years woth one (or more) of their children etc.

I can't guarantee that it occurred in this particular family - but there is always the possibility.
