  • Notes 
    • This person is a mystery. He is rarely mentioned, but is found enough to have really existed. Betty Wren's theory is that he was handicapped or retarded. That's why he died relatively young and they used his name again. Even though A.D. Wren was living during the same time.

      The record I find of this person, though, is the marker in the Wren cemetery, erected much later than this person's life. I suspect that there is a general confusion of this person and Alexander H.S. Wren or another child.
