ALEXANDER/TAYLOR

Andy A. ALEXANDER, b.c 1815, Montpelier,VT, and Susan MORRIS/MORGAN? b.26 Oct 1819 Martha's Vineyard, MA, and children: Alvin b.11 May 1847, Montpelier, VT, with wife, 1) Betsy, b.c1853 IL; Ellen c1849 VT; John, b. 6 June 1853 VT; Matilda b.April 1860 IL. Located in 1870 Escambia County, FL Census, at Pensacola.

Alvin ALEXANDER later married 2) Millie TAYLOR b. 3 Mar 1857, AL/FL? and were living in Pensacola, in 1880 census. Millie was the daughter of Richard TAYLOR, b. c1781 NC/GA and Susannah HOSFORD/HOSPERS?, b. c1817 GA/FL? Alvin and Millie had three children in Pensacola: Susan Jean, b.22 Dec 1879; Henry Jackson (my gf) b.26 Oct 1881; and Thomas Morgan b.6 Nov.1883. They moved to Ouachita County, Arkansas, where they had about five more children.

Andy ALEXANDER was not living in 1880, as Susan, age 61, was living with Alvin and Millie, as "widow". We believe he died in Pensacola and is buried in St. John's Cemetery. I also believe Richard TAYLOR (who was 99 years old in 1880 Census) and living with his wife, Susannah, are also buried in St. John's Cemetery.

RAND/HAMILTON/FISHER

I am trying to get information on my great great grandfather. His name was Jasper RAND. He came from Italy around 1854. I don't know his real name, but my guess is that it was something like Gaspare RANDAZZO. I believe he came first to New Orleans and married my great grandmother, Ellen ROSE (from Ireland). They had at least two children there, Nina and Mary Anne (b1864) and in Pensacola, they had several more children, Annie, Ida and Mary Ellen.

Ellen died before 1883 and I believe he married Jane HAMILTON. He married a third time to Josephine FISHER and had a number of children. Their names were Dominic, Jasper and Julia. Birthdates are October 3, 1895, March 25, 1897, March 16, 1900. There is also also a Theresa Frances born on September 2, 1903. One of the children, Dominick had several businesses including a taxi service. He was still alive in 1955 and at that time was president of Pensacola Amusement Company.

I am trying to find out my great grandfather's real name, where he actually entered the U.S. more information about his children by Josephine. If there are any descendants by him and Josephine who are still alive, how may I be able to locate them. Jasper died in October of 1905 and I believe he is buried at St. Michael's Cemetery. Also do you know how I may find out if he was divorced from Jane Hamilton or did she die?

P.S. I thought you might like to know that through my genealogical research, my mother has recently made contact with a cousin whom she lost touch with when my mother was 11. My mother is going to be 80 on September 5th. My mother's cousin's name was Mary Jane VILLAR of Pensacola. Send E-mail to Frances 08/97
