From Alvord Genealogy (1908):

Earl Bill Alvord moved with his father to Onondaga Valley N. Y. in Mar. 1829. He started in the lime business with his brothers, Clark and Henry G. in 1841. Soon after he bought out his brothers and in 1849 moved to Syracuse where he built a lime mill at the corner of Canal and Lock Sts. His business prospered, and he invested in quarries at Jamesville, N. Y., establishing branches of his business there and at Binghamton. In 1878 he began to deal also in coal. He was a pioneer in the manufacture of macadam pavement in Syracuse.

Mr. Alvord was a man of broad views and of great energy, a bitter opponent of monopolies. Though he was not closely identified with either political party, he was urged to accept the nomination for mayor, but he declined. In all his dealings he was generous and of strict integrity.
