Logan County
West Virginia, USA
Death: Apr. 25, 1945

Charley was the 10th child of Asa "Ace" and Cynthia (Belcher) Aliff: Birth Certificate.

Charley made at least two attempts to marry his long-time sweetheart, Lunettie M. 'Nettie' Jarrell [daughter of John G. Jarrell]. A marriage license was issued by the Boone County Clerk's Office on November 23, 1918 for Charley Aliff, age 20 b. Logan to wed Nettie Jarrell, age 20, but it was apparently returned "Not Used": Marriage License 1
A marriage license was also issued by the Kanawha County Clerk's Office on October 4, 1920 for Charley Aliff, age 22, born Logan County and Nettie Jarrell, age 23, b. Boone County. It was also returned "Not Used" to the Kanawha County Clerk's office: Marriage License 2

In between, Charley & Nettie had a daughter together: Leola Arbutus Aliff, born March 13, 1919.

In case you're wondering how it all turned out:
Charley married Mary Magdalene Austin on November 16, 1920 in Kanawha County: Marriage License. Mary was the sister of Minnie Austin (memorial #92182924), who was married to Charles' brother George Dewey Aliff (memorial #92182770). Charley and Mary lived a happy life together with their children, and are buried beside each other.
Nettie married Thomas Massey in Whitesville on August 12, 1922: Their Marriage License.
