Born August 30, 1872
Alvin is listed in the 1930 census, but not listed in the 1940 census. It has been assumed that he died between 1930 and 1940. The Family Bible shows date of death as October 6, 1963. I cannot find any documents to verify this.
Alvin was still alive January 25, 1939, as reported in the Lansing State Journal.
