married Fannie A Hoxie b NY, d 5 Feb 1898, Spirit L, IA.
Children:Mary Bolema, b Waukashaw, WI, 22 Aug 1854
Alexander H, b Waukesha, WI, 24 Dec 1858

What documentation do you have for Robert and Fannie's birthdate and places of birth?
I would like to trace him back to Ireland. Family lore says he was born there. He wore a
patch over one eye said to have been lost during the Civil War. Do you have anything about
the Civil War? I would like to trace Fannie's parents. I have a picture of a 30 year
old Alexander. I may have a picture with Mary and Nellie.
My other g grandparents are James Wellington Sperbeck b 1828, Knox, Albany, NY married
Jane Leech b June 1833, Utica, NY
