My grandfather was Dale Richard Alexander. I am trying to figure out who his father was. All researches show that Lee E. Alexander was his father, but I came across an obituary saying his father was Ralph. Can anyone help me?
Thank you.

The 1920 census seems to back up Ralph as the father (IF this is the same family)

Note: The obit says he was born in Kenney which is also in DeWitt County.

I don't know if he did. I have a marriage record of Dale Alexander and Myrtle E. Robinson (my grandmother).They had three children: Earnest Alexander, Sarah Christinia, and Donna Lorene (my mother). Dale left when my mother was in infant in 1944 the same year that the obituary says that he married Lonetta Turner. I'm just really confused.

This is odd: Ralph Alexander and Elva Clark had five children who died the day after they were born. (All born in different years.)

I really don't know. The only thing that speculates is that he had a son Earnest Alexander and my mother has a brother names Earnest Alexander. I'm thinking this isn't the right one..
