ALPHA had a homestead in LAKE TOWNSHIP; Section 4 from 1884 until I believe 1887. Adjacent to this land on its east edge was land owned by F.B. WILCOX, either his father or brother-in-law? Definitely one or the other. Alpha kept leaving and returning but his parents died there in 1897 & both are buried in FOREST PARK CEMETERY. Other family members also settled in MANCHESTER, GRANT COUNTY, OKLAHOMA (ORRs & COTTERILLs) where they died off by the mid 1960's or so. They are also connected to the PIKE COUNTY, ILLINOIS ORRs; HARDIN COUNTY, OHIO COTTERILLs & CHRISTIAN COUNTY, ILLINOIS WILCOXs.
