  From  Easton's  1897  Bible  Dictionary  [easton]: 
 
  Alexander 
  man-defender.  (1.)  A  relative  of  Annas  the  high  priest,  present 
  when  Peter  and  John  were  examined  before  the  Sanhedrim  (Acts 
  4:6). 
 
  (2.)  A  man  whose  father,  Simon  the  Cyrenian,  bore  the  cross  of 
  Christ  (Mark  15:21). 
 
  (3.)  A  Jew  of  Ephesus  who  took  a  prominent  part  in  the  uproar 
  raised  there  by  the  preaching  of  Paul  (Acts  19:33).  The  Jews  put 
  him  forward  to  plead  their  cause  before  the  mob.  It  was  probably 
  intended  that  he  should  show  that  he  and  the  other  Jews  had  no 
  sympathy  with  Paul  any  more  than  the  Ephesians  had  It  is 
  possible  that  this  man  was  the  same  as  the  following. 
 
  (4.)  A  coppersmith  who  with  Hymenaeus  and  others  promulgated 
  certain  heresies  regarding  the  resurrection  (1  Tim.  1:19;  2  Tim. 
  4:14),  and  made  shipwreck  of  faith  and  of  a  good  conscience. 
  Paul  excommunicated  him  (1  Tim.  1:20;  comp.  1  Cor.  5:5). 
 
 
  From  Hitchcock's  Bible  Names  Dictionary  (late  1800's)  [hitchcock]:
