In fact I was not 100% certain of the death year of Alexander. My father had told us that Alexander died at sea around 1893, and that his son "Ned" also drowned. I have never known details of this accident, and there were a few stories floating in the extended family, but nothing concrete. I am very happy to see your post and I thank you so so much for your information. Can you tell me how I can see this newspaper article? Would you be able to e-mail me a copy?
Thank you again,
