From Cheryl:

I have a newspaper clipping of Alexander's obituary and it stated he was 64 years of age at his death. As I know the cemetary in which Alexander is buried, I found the date of death to be Dec. 9, 1948. Therefore, Alexander would have been born in 1884. He had been a cashier with Dominion Bridge company for 35 years and that he had come to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada in 1902. Furthermore, it mentions that he was active in sports, particularly in soccer and was a member of the Britannia Football association. He was a life member of the Assiniboine Masonic Lodge, no 114, G.R.M. During the first World War, Alexander served with the Queens' Own Cameron Highlanders. The obituary lists surviving relatives as: 3 brothers Fred and Robert Cringan of Vancouver and Ronald of Los Angeles, California and 4 sisters Mrs. J. Atiken and Mrs. R. Bonar of Vancouver, Mrs A. Lloyd of Oakland, California and Mrs. A. MacPherson of Winnipeg.
