Believe Alexander's parents were a John and Anna Phillips McDermid. Brothers William and James and a sister Fanny mentioned in his obituary. He immigrated to the US in 1876. Not known for sure if his brothers and sister came with him. Grandparents thought to be a James A & Janet McDermid. Alexander said his father was a surveyor in Glasgow area. A family note mentions the Barclay Phillips Brass Foundry. Anna may have been from that family. Alexander's mother may have died in childbirth and his father remarried. Alexander was in Illinois,So Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska, Montana, Washington and finally in Kimberly, Idaho where he died in Feb 1934.
