Happened to run across the book today. There are only four Alexanders listed: Jane Alexander 1820-1907; Henry Alexander 1814-1906; Marian L Alexander 1865-1941; and John W Alexander 1886-1955. All the names are written together possibly indicating that they are all buried in a family plot or at least side by side. The graves are in Salem Cemetery, located 4 & 1/2 miles south of Teague on Farm Rd 80. It is on a five-acre tract of land given by the W.H. McSwaine family in December 1853 for a church and cemetery, making it one of the oldest in Freestone County. I hope this helps with your research.
