Alonzo was born in Fulton County, New York on October 15, but we're not sure what year. His death certificate lists his birth year as 1856. His burial record at Woodland lists him as 56 when he died in 1917 which would make his birth year as 1861 and the 1900 census lists his birth year as 1859 and the 1860, 1880 and 1910 census all vary his age!!
His parents were William & Elizabeth Duesler. His mother died in Vienna, NY about 1862 or 1863 and his father then married Caroline Bernhard.
He had half-siblings Catherine, Willard, Frank & Daisy.
He first appeared in the Cleveland, Ohio city directory in 1880 when he and Martha and his parents moved to Cleveland.
The 1900 and 1910 census lists his occupation as an iron molder in a foundry and his death certificate lists him as an inspector.
Alonzo married Martha Caulfield in 1879 in Rome. They had five children listed above.
They were living at 6308 Outhwaite and had been married 36 years when she died on Jan. 29, 1915. He died two years later on Sept. 8, 1917 from heart failure and was living with his daughter Callie at 2566 E. 61st St. in Cleveland prior to his death.
Alonzo & Martha are buried at Woodland Cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio, Sec. 49, Lot 106.
