Cross, Alexander George (1837–1909)

It is thought that Alexander George Cross lived in a common-law marriage with a woman named Emma who had previously been married and whose surname was Burns or Barnett. They had six children but following Emma's death (sometime between 1873-1901) Alexander deserted his children.
