I am trying to learn more about my great-grandfather, Alexander Hendrickson. Info I have on him so far:
He was born (about) 1891 somewhere in Canada (more than likely Ontario)
Parents: Father was born in Sweden and mother was born in Canada (not sure where)
He married Mary Ann (not sure where/when/or what her maiden name is)
He and Mary Ann had 7 children: Jeanne; Margaret; Mildred; Eunice; Thomas; Mary; and Helen
This is the ONLY information that I have on him. Sorry I dont have more. If anyone could help me obtain more information I would deeply appreciate it very much. If you have any information please drop me a line @ email@example.com
