I'd like to find the death date and place of John H. Alexander, born somewhere poss. IN or KY, about 1803, the son of Thomas Alexander. He was married first to Judah Northern, then in 1841 to Mary Frances Carter, aka. Frankie Lucus. She was married first to Joel Lucus. My gggrandfather was John and Frankie's son, John H., born in 1842; died 1904 in Jackson County, Indiana.
I have seen online that he died in Jefferson Barracks, MO; which is the St. Louis area. The story that I have been told is that he was probably there in the civil war. Which is possible, I just haven't been able to find evidence of this. I actually believe his son John was more the age for joining wars. The older John would have been over 50, the younger in his early 20's.
Does anyone know whether this is based in fact? Does anyone have a death date on the elder John?
