Alexander apparently died between the 1910 and 1920 census, couldn't find him. Maybe you'll have better luck.

Go to Rootsweb's World Connect -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi -- Type in Mahaffey, Alexander, born 1852 + or - 5 years, spouse Crook. Click on the first one it has some of the children, but not all. Note there is a yellow "View Post-em" click on that, you'll probably want to share information with that person. The original submitter at least has parents of Alexander, you'll probably have to prove that, though.

More children are listed on the 1900 census, plus you can share the DCs here, too.

Happy Hunting (^_^)
