We were just thrilled to run across your biography of Alexander Phillip Chesley. Almost everything that you wrote corresponds with what we know of his life. He is my great-great grandfather on my mother's side. The only major discrepency is the name of his son who was born to Emily in Potowatomy, Iowa. My mother says that his name was George Briscar or Brisker and you have him listed as George Alexander. The George Chesley I know married Mary Anne George and one of their children was my grandmother Fay Cautra Chesley born on April 23, 1895 in Petersburg, Utah.
Look forward to any additional information you might have.
