You may want to contact the Sauk Prairie Area Historical Society. They have a section in thier newsletter for genealogy. I would suggest contacting Lola Huber, S7829 Huber Rd., North Freedom, WI 53951 for the SPHS. Also email me at vmatz@tds.net. I may have a little information for you. I have the 12 Vol. of "Cemetery Inscriptions of Sauk County, Wisconsin". I couldn't locate William but maybe one of his wives.

Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately I do not know any of the 3 wives names that William Alexander may have had. What I do know is that 2 of his sons are buried in Baraboo, WI? Bernhard (b 6/1/1847) and Richard (b. 3/20/1845). My mother had William Alexander as being buried in Sauk City, WI. Is there such a town>??

Thanks, Wendy

There is a Sauk City. I couldn't locate William as being buried there. In the Salem Cemetery, Honey Creek Twp, listing there is listed for Alexander, Wilhelmina (Piper) 1821 - 1863, 42y 8d (?) (Wife of William). (4 unreadable stones) and Wilhelm, son of W. and.W. age 1 mo. Walnut Hill Cemetery lists Richard 1844 - 1930. In my civil war veteran grave registration, I have his death date as 01 Apr 1930 and as a veteran of Co. K, 45th WVI. I couldn't locate Bernard. If you email me your email address I'll scan an article from the "History of Salem Church of Honey Creek" with some information on Ida Barbara and also on her father, William.

My relationship with William Alexander has to do with his daughter Theresa Eliza Emily Alexander who married Herman Radant. I have death places for them as being in Ramsey Cty, St Paul, MN (Theresa was born 11/29/1856). Any help would be appreciated.

PS - also in regards to Ida Barbara -- I show her marrying a Rev. Andrew Tarnutzer (Taurnutzer ?) and she is buried in Portage, WI. Can you verify this?? I also have reason to believe that William ( the father) Ida Barbara, Richard, Bernhart, Otillie, and Rudolph (along with their mother) immigrated to the US in 1855-56 from Germany.

The article on Mrs. Andrew Tarnutzer (Ida Pauline) verifies that she is buried in Silver Lake Cemetery in Portage.

Surnames: Alexander
I have subscribed to the census records with ancestry.com and have found an 1860 Fed census with a William Alexander mentioned. All I have been able to find so far is that it was in Sauk County, Troy Township, Pg 853 in the 1860 Federal Census. I cannot however seem to find it and actually view it. Can you help me out?? It should verify who the wife was at the time and if Theresa was his daughter as she would have been 4 at the time and her mother did not die til she was 7 or 8 years old. Also any other help on how to view these new records I have subscribed to??\

Thanks in advance. Wendy

This post was made a decade ago. I have discovered some information on William Alexander. My great great grandmother was his 3rd wife (Catherine Perau Meyn) and this shows up on the 1980 census with only one child living with them--Gustav. She was not married to William in 1970 as I find her in that census with 3 sons (including my great grandfather John Henry Meyn/Mayne) and no husband. Cannot find her date of death nor can I find William Alexander's date of death. William's daughters Theresa Radant and Minnie (Wilhelmina) Mrs. Ed Schlukebier, who lived and died in St Paul MN.
