Birth: Aug., 1835
New York, USA
Death: Apr. 9, 1909
Sonoma County
California, USA

Charles Rufus Alexander was born in Aug 1835 in New York to Rufus Alexander and wife Sarah Jane (Bertiss/Burtis).

Married Ada Lou Humphries on 22 Dec 1887 in Sonoma County, California, Children: Charles Rufus (1888-1929), Melissa (1891-1979), Mary Ida (1892-1981) abd Sanuel William (1898-1977)

He died on 9 Apr 1909 in Santa Rosa, Sonoma, California.

The death certificate says that he was buried in the Sonoma Co. Farm Cemetery. Pamela Fowler Sweeney who was the original person to enter Charles Rufus Alexander took his name from records of the Santa Rosa Rural Cemetery, which gives his niece's name Bertha Adams of 113 Hewitt St., Santa Rosa as the person billed, so this must be him. It was listed as a indigent burial.

Susan Faught also has him entered as being in the Old County Cemetery from records that she had.

So for now we will leave him in both cemeteries, may he rest in peace.
