ALEXANDER, GEORGE, Licking P.O., Washington, was born in York county, and was one of the children of William and Nancy Ann Alexander. The family came to the township in 1840, when Mr. Alexander bought 100 acres of land, paying two dollars per acre for it.
He married Caroline M., a daughter of Horace R. Peck, of Rochester, N.Y. Their children were William E. and Albert E. William Alexander died in September, 1875; George died in April, 1875.
