    1. [S742] Poem - My Kin Folk, Alexander, Olive, (n.p. ).
      Written by Olive Alexander Richison [unreadable] Sept 1930. The last named Thomas is my dad.
      My Kin Folk

      I am going to tell you about my kin
      But I hardly know just where to begin
      My great grandfather Daniel Alexander from Scotland came
      Came to the United States to make for himself a name.
      The facts are this as the story goes
      He ran off to marry the girl his parents opposed
      Sally Frey was the girl he wed
      May 31 1787 the date the cermony (sic) was read
      And to this union seven children came
      Prudence, John, Thomas, Margaret, Henry, Martha, and James.
      The one named Thomas was my own grandad
      And of the rest I cannot say any good or bad.
      Grandad was born in 1810 Aug 11 the date
      In the county of Preble, Ohio the state
      Lucinda Harshman was the girl of his dreams
      To mother his children and keep his house clean.
      There were twelve children Joseph, Henry, James, and Sol.
      Daniel, Abraham, Thomas, & George eight boys in all.
      Lucinda, Sarah, Mary, & Rhoda Jane
      Were the daughters that too (sic) this couple came.
      And the offspring and grandchildren all
      Gather to celebrate and their memory recall.

      [The notation in the upper right-hand corner is in the same handwriting as the rest of the paper and is as you see it here.
      Md date in the poem can not be correct. I believe it is Sally FREY's birth date.]
