Alex (1851-1919) was the son of John Nicolson and Christina Macdonald. The address at the time of his birth is not certain. His father's parents were living at 16 Old South Tolsta and his mother's were probably cottars in Old South Tolsta; it is likely the family were living one of these addresses.
During the year of his birth, the crofts were relotted and his family obtained 3 North Tolsta and settled there.
Alex married Catherine Graham from 9 North Tolsta and they settled there with their nine children.
