Just as I thought Carole.......

Could be a couple missing from there too going by the age gaps.

That's a good census.......even has g g/mother.

It's great when you find those.

George is 10 in 1891 so was born before the 1883 marriage

Maybe a previous marriage?

It would be interesting to find Alfred in 1939 as that would give a better insight of him as he wouldn't have an occupation in 1911 although worth looking at that too.

This is overwhelming I am so grateful to all of you for helping me and sending this information. I intend to find Mr Alfred Alexander of Peterhead, my grandfather I want to know everything about him. My father and his sister they are wanting to know who their real Father was. I read in one reply that he might have died in 1986 and he lived outside Aberdeenshire how do you know this?
This is very interesting if you know anymore.

Hi

You will need to register with Scotlands People and buy some credits.  This will enable you to download a copy of the 1903 birth cert
Hi I wil do this many thanks Annie

Hi

how do you know this?

By using Scotlands People.  Searching for a death for him would match his birthyear but was not found using Aberdeen as a place of death
