Mortuary Notice
Date: Saturday, April 5, 1806, Paper: Alexandria Daily Advertiser (Alexandria, Virginia), Volume VI, Issue: 1567, Page: 3

Died this morning, at his county seat, in an advance stage of life, Charles Alexander, Sen., Esq.

A panegyric on the virtues of this gentleman would be highly unnecessary, as his whole life exhibits a sufficient demonstration of the excellence of his principles and the purity of his intentions. His family must long remember the domestic endearments of an affectionate husband, and a tender, solicitous father. The morality of his character has never been questioned - his faults were always forgotten when the brilliancy of his virtues was considered - his hospitality, his honor, and honesty demand the undisputed praise of every candid man, of every lover of virtue, and well wisher of society. His lingering and severe disease afforded him an ample opportunity of exerting the heroism of his christianity, he resigned his well-spent life into the hands of that beneficent Creator from whom he received.
