    Notes 
    • Alexander and Jane raised thirteen children in addition to the fifteen of his, hers and theirs. In 1852 Alexander's younger brother, Samuel (1801-1852) and wife Mary Irwin Purvines (1805-1852) died within a month of each other. They had eight children, the eldest had been married but a short time to Jane's eldest son, Frank. The other seven, age 7 to 19, were taken in by Alexander and Jane. In that same year, Alexander's eldest daughter, Elizabeth P. Bone, died in childbirth. She left a six year old child who was also added to the family. On 16 Jul 1861, Alexander, himself died. One of George's children died in 1862, with George passing away on 31 Mar 1863, leaving his four orphaned children to be raised by their grandmother Jane. All thirteen of these children were considered a part of Alexander and Jane's family, in fact, the grandchildren always referred to Sam and Mary's eight as aunts and uncles. The family always referred to Alex and Jane as having had 28 children.
