Alfred Carlson first came to Klamath Falls in 1904. He worked for Rufus Moore in the old Mill on Link River, and later in his Mill below the Bridge on Riverside street.
Millwork was seasonal and the men would all gather in Portland for the winter months. It was there that Mr. Moore first contacted Carlson to come to Klamath Falls. It was there that Alfred met Selma Mattson.
January 18, 1908 Alfred Carlson married Selma Mattson in Portland and they came directly to Klamath by stage via Pokegama. They stayed at a Mary McClure's boarding house while their home was being built by R.W. Wattenburg at 406 Riverside, where they lived out their lives. They were the parents of two children, Alfred Mattis Carlson and Ethel Martina (Mrs. Fred Goeller).
Alfred worked in several Mills in many capacities, millwright, sawyer, etc. His later years were spent at Big Lakes as Head Planer man. He was skilled in grinding knives for making all kinds of fancy moldings.
Alfred was also an inventor, he designed an unusual windmill and pump jack, which he had in production for a number of years. He experimented with electronics as a hobby.
He was a member of the A.O.U.W. Lodge which was very active in Klamath in the early days.
