Birth: Jun. 19, 1888
Nebraska, USA
Death: May 8, 1907
Nebraska, USA

Son of James C. and Nellie Acheson.
Alvin died in 1907, and by 1910 his family is in Christian County (southern) Missouri. His father's remains were returned to Nebraska for burial next to Alvin in 1919. His mother is still in Christian County in 1920 as a widow.

The following was extracted from the Friday, May 10, 1907, issue of The McCook Tribune:

Accidentally Shot Himself Fatally.
Wednesday, Alvin, the 19 year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Acheson of the Driftwood, accidentally shot himself with a rifle, dying shortly afterwards. He and his father were fixing fence on the farm. Seeing a coyote he started to get over the fence with the rifle in hand. The weapon was in some unknown manner discharged, the bullet entering his side. Medical skill was summoned from Culbertson, but he died before the doctor arrived at the farm. The remains were buried at the stone church on the Driftwood, Friday morning. The bereaved parents and family have the tenderest sympathy of everyone in this terrible sorrow.
