Page County
Virginia, USA
Death: Feb. 17, 1917

Charles married Mittie Florence Shomo on November 6, 1881 in Page County, Virginia.

Charles B. Alger, of Newport, aged 57 years, a highly respected citizen, died last Saturday after an illness of about a month with grip. For more than a year previous Mr. Alger's health had been rapidly declining.

The deceased was born and raised in Page county, residing in the immediate neighborhood of Newport. For a number of years he has filled very satisfactorily the position of Overseer of Roads.
The deceased had been a consistent member of the Newport Christian church for over thirty years.

He is survived by his wife, who before marriage was Miss Mittie Shomo, and one daughter and four sons: Mrs. S.L. Keyser, Frank, Grover and William Alger, of Page, and Earnest L. Alger, of Millwood, Clarke county. He is also survived by one sister, Mrs. Simeon Keyser, of Ingham.

The funeral services were held at Newport at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday conducted by Rev. W.T. Walters, of Winchester. Interment took place in the cemetery adjoining the church.
