The first concrete record I can find for Alexander is when he marries Esther. They marry in Christ Church, Ashton Under Lyne, Lancashire, England. Visit this GENUKI website to see a picture of the church:

Alexander works as a shoemaker and lives at the following addresses:

 

· 160 Ashley St, Dukinfield, Lancashire

· 18 Whittington St., Ashton-Under-Lyne, Lancashire

· 50 Brooks St., Ashton, Ashton-Under-Lyne, Lancashire and Cheshire

 

A descendant of Alexander’s sister, Mary Jane, tells family stories of complaints about how hard the life of an English shoemaker could be. Alexander’s death at 48 would seem to support those stories.

 

At lease three of Alexander’s children marry and two of them have children.
