Here's my Alexander list:
Brazine Alexander (paternal great grandmother) - I don't know her maiden name or my grt grandfather's name.
Brazine's children were:
Mitchell Alexander, Sr. (my grandfather)
Lessil Alexander (may be spelled wrong in the census - may be Leslie)
(all of the above except Mitchell were listed in the 1910 Panola, TX census)
Mitchell Alexander, Sr. married Minnie Evelina Richardson 1909 - 1974 and had five children, all born in Texas:
Mitchell Alexander, Jr. (my father) 1926
Minnie Rose Alexander 1928
Eddie Pearl Alexander 1930
Doris Mae Alexander 1931
Clarence Edward Alexander 1932
My dad says that his immediate Alexander family used to live in Mart, TX for a while during the 1930s and 1940s. He was very young then and does not remember when they moved to Midland.
My great grandmother Polly (White) Richardson Durham 1881 - 1968 (Minnie's mom), married a man named Durham after her first husband, Matthew Richardson died. Polly and ? Durham had one son, Julius Durham who was born May 20, 1918 in Ennis, TX. I don't know what Durham's first name was and my dad does not remember. Julius had several children from marriage to Lillie (Warren) Durham of Shreveport, LA:
Ernest Ray Durham
Julius Durham, Jr.
Lillie Rose Durham
Some of my elder cousins told me that they called Mitchell, Sr. by the nickname "Monk". My dad and aunt Doris say that they barely remember him because he left when they were very young. Any information you have or might share on the Alexander family members will be appreciated.
Happy Hunting - Michelle
