Alexander was the son of Scottish migrants John Caldwell (1865-1933) [G14] and Jeannie Maxwell Caldwell (nee Morton, 1866-1892).
Jeannie died on 30 September 1892, presumably as a result of complications following childbirth.
We presume that Alexander was placed in foster care (whether with a relative or with friends, perhaps via the Presbyterian Church networks) because this square on the quilt shows him living at Briagolong in Gippsland.
Alexander appears to have spent his adult life in Gippsland, farming at Yinnar. He died in 1966.
