The Franklin Republican, Friday, June 17, 1887, Volume 43, Number 24, page 5, column 1

John K. Alexander, an old resident of this city, died at his home, Carthage, Ill., on the 7th of this month. Mr. Alexander was engaged in the hardware business for several years where Smith and Tilson are now in the same business. While he and his father were in the business together the
building now occupied by Smith and Tilson was erected. It has since been repaired. Mr. Alexander was, for a short time, in the livery business also, in this place. He left this county near the close of the war. He was a cousin of R. A. Alexander, and was advanced in years.
