His surname was spelled "Poaps" in the 1881 Canada census. It is spelled "Popst" in a Poapst family Bible.

Alexander may have been the "A. Poapst" who owned 50 acres in Osnabruck Township in 1879 (H. Belden county map). This has not been confirmed. See http://digital.library.mcgill.ca/countyatlas/showrecord.php?PersonID=38856.
