Notes for Margaret & Alex:
In 1870 Margaret and Alex are living in Burlingame City, Osage Co., Ks. He is working as a stage agent there. They have two children:
1. L. Don Blair
(If the death information that I have for Thomas Jessup is, in fact, for MY Thomas Jessup then L. Don Blair would actually be a child of his, rather than a child of Alex's.)
2. Kate Blair
Born Jan. in Kansas
In 1880 Margaret and Alex and children are living in El Dorado, Butler Co., Ks. Alex is working in a grocery store then. Margaret's brother 'Adam' is living there also and owns a grocery store so Alex is probably employed there.
