Alexis Hazel was born in Alsace on 22nd of May 1846 and came to this country with his father at the age of about ten years. After a stay of about ten years in New Orleans, he moved to Belleville, IL where he remained about one year. He then came to Ste. Genevieve County where he has remained ever since, engaged at farming at Zell, River aux Vases and Ste. Genevieve successively. In 1866, he married Miss Sophie Siebert who preceded him in death several years ago. Of the union there are four children who survive Mary, Roman, Katie and Gussie, the oldest being 18 and the youngest about 8. During the late Civil War, Mr. Hazel served the Union as a soldier for about a year and three months, having enlisted in Company K of the 47th Missouri Infantry, which was Capt. St. Gem's company. He was a member of the J. Felix St. James Post, GAR of this place, and a large number of comrades appeared in uniform at the funeral to pay their last respects to a departed veteran. The deceased had for years been afflicted with consumption but had been able to be up and about to within a few days before his demise. About a week ago the patient began to spit up blood and it soon became evident that his earthly existence was drawing to a close. A number of his comrades with the GAR Post shared with his children the duty of watching by the bedside of the dying man until he breathed his last.

Besides the four children already mentioned he leaves two brothers, Roman and John to mourn his loss. May he rest in peace. (Found in June 8, 1889 Ste. Genevieve Herald)
