  • Notes 
    • Alexander was born at Eckitten Estate in East Prussia. He immigrated with his parents to Texas when he was sixteen years of age. He worked with his brothers at Nassau Plantation, joining the Confederate Army with them. He was an artillery sergeant and fought in skirmishes in East Texas and Louisiana. He and his brother Walter returned home on a furlough and found their mother had died. After returning to the war, Alexander died. The Froelich book states that he died October 2, 1864 near Liberty, Texas. However, an old letter states that he contracted typhoid fever while in an army camp at Brownsville, Texas and died June 4, 1864, the place not state. He is supposedly buried near Liberty. [5]
