Yes, that's the one, with a notable exception. William Alexander was my uncle; there are five children missing from this list. My father John Ira was born in 1916 and was the sixth of ten children. Also, there is some confusion about the beginning of the list. Documentation shows that Johnannes Kausman was born in 1720, probably in Germany, and was naturalized (British) in 1751 in New York; it was then that he changed his name to John Cosman. It's unclear whether Rouelf and his father Johannes are accurately in the precession. I've also heard that Johannes was one of three brothers, but that's also unsubstantiated. Do you have any information on the earliest members of the family?
