Name Rel. Age Born Occupation Where Born
1According to records I located, [David] Alexander [German Jr.] was a farmer while they lived in NJ but, when he bought the land in Newtown, appeared to be more interested in dividing the land into small parcels, building homes on them, and selling these. After Amelia died, he married Annie Hoppock, of Hunterdon County, NJ. she outlived him and returned to NJ after his death. I have a copy of Alexander's will, and a few probate documents. Evidently, his second wife could not write her name, as she signed with an X. — Carolyn Bausinger in email to Connie Stover, 23 Mar 2013.
