Charles Irvin "Charley" Denison
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 15, 1884, USA
Death: Jan., 1959
Port Alsworth
Lake and Peninsula Borough
Alaska, USA

Charley was born in Missouri and came to the Alaskan frontier as a young man. He prospected, ran supplies out of Nome, and assisted geographical surveys. With his first wife, Myrtle, their first son, Floyd, was born in Canada before moving to Coos Bay, Oregon where he was a sawmill engineer. A second son, Donald, was born after the move. He then married Ida and they had a son, Charles in the Coos Bay area and then relocated to Seldovia, Alaska where their daughter, Mildred was born. Following their separation he remained in Alaska and finally settled at Tanalian Point on Lake Clark where he built the first steam powered saw mill of the area (hauling the machinery by dog sled from Bristol Bay), fished, and enjoyed experimenting with Alaska gardening. Parts of the old steam engine are displayed at the Lake Clark National Park headquarters.
