I have been trying to develop a early history of the Yellowstone river area, and I have tripped ofver the name of Ft. Alexander. It was supposed to be located north of the Yellowstone near the mouth of the Tongue. I appears to have antedated Ft. Keogh by a considerable amount of time and may have been a fur fort, possibly part of the Hudson Bay Company. (Named after Alexander Mackenzie???) I am familiar with most of the military forts, but have not heard of this one.
