Charles Engram "Charlie" Alexander
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Jan. 29, 1871
South Carolina, USA
Death: Jan. 9, 1949
Darlington County
South Carolina, USA

Charlie was a son of John Wesley Alexander and the former Sarah A.M. "Sallie" Stewart. He was widowed by Frances Olivia Jernigan Alexander, who died due to childbirth, and was buried on his fathers old property "Lone Tree Farm" in Florence County with the infant in the same coffin. He is buried next to 2nd wife Ida Jeffords Alexander. Between the two wives, he had a large family.

Although it is commonly thought that Charlie was not a Charles is incorrect. He was Charles Engram "Charlie" Alexander, attested to me personally by the late William Frank Alexander Sr., his son. Just a couple of years before he died he strongly told several Alexanders and me at a family reunion that his father was indeed a Charles, and that his father's middle name was Engram, spelled with an "E", not an "I".

OBITUARY dated January 12, 1949, but datelined January 11:

"DARLINGTON, January 11 Charles E. Alexander, 77, planter died last night (his grave marker says he died on January 9th) at his residence at Oates. He had been in declining health for some time.
