Alton, Alfred Charles (30 Sept. 1833 - 13 Dec. 1900)

Alfred Charles Alton, whose death occurred Thursday morning, Dec. 13, and whose funeral took place the following Sunday, was born in New York state Sept. 30, 1833. He came to Wisconsin, to Eau Claire, in 1862 and to Greenwood in 1876.

Before coming West he married Miss Rosana Smith, who survives. Six children were born of this union, they being Charles Pl, Mrs. Mary Borigo, George, Mrs. Eugene Cummings, John and Mrs. Harry Livesay. Johnnie was drowned about five years ago. All living were present during the last illness except Mrs. Livesay who is away in Michigan.

Deceased was by trade a stone mason and plasterer, he having done about the first work of the kind in Greenwood. Most of the older and many of the more recently built houses were plastered by him. He also owned a good farm about six miles west of town where the widow and her son Chas. P. and his wife now reside.
