Hi Aengus, this is a nice surprise - my mom, Mary Etta Alexander-Ritch, is Pressley's cousin! I never expected to hear from someone so close to the family name. I haven't read my original post but since then I've learned a lot about the Alexander name, and I have a bunch of information if you'd like it. When I wrote that post I must've just started getting into Genealogy. Actually William Almarine is my great grandfather and John Ormand is my grandfather. I'll have to dig up my info and send you what I have, but my mom gave me some paperwork that was given to her by your grandmother Sara Octavia. In that paperwork it states that Harriet died in 1858 giving birth to William Almarine. I found William Almarine's death certificate which listed Octavia Alexander as his mother. Somewhere I found info that states a John Alexander as Williams father. This is where I get stuck. I don't know if she died or if she was shun from the family for having a child out of wedlock. I'm in the middle of moving but would love to keep in touch with you. My email is - send me your email address and when I get settled I'll scan you what I have and send it to you. ~Debbie
