Willian Alexander Biography

William Alexander died in Boggs township, Aug. 3, 1840. His memory is fragrant for his zeal in the cause of Sabbath-schools, Bible and temperance societies. He was afflicted many years with entire loss of sight, but had read the Scriptures so carefully that he had much of them in his memory, and could repeat large portions of them, particularly of the New Testament, with great accuracy.

He was eighty years of age at his death. Of his children were James, John, Joseph (father of Joseph Alexander, Jr., of whom a sketch written by his daughter, Mrs. Twitmire, is inserted.). George, John, William grandchildren.
