NOTE: mystery remains of Alexander's parentage. Though his death certificate names Charles Brandon and Sarah Barker, Charles actually died some time between 1856 and 1861, unverified. Alexander can be found with last name of "Sweney" on the 1870 census. His Brandon brothers are also listed with name Sweney, head of household William Sweney (Swaney)and Sarah same age as his mother Sarah Barker.
They all resume use of Brandon surname after that census.
