The family monument has Alfred's name on it, but he is not thought to be buried here. He attended Knox College 1856-57 and emigrated to Nevada c1861; was in Virginia City or Carson City, Nevada for three or four years, married, and started home with his wife and six other men about 1865. They were never heard of afterwards. It was reported that a white horse he had with him returned to Virginia City in a day or two after he left and it was supposed the whole party was killed by Indians or Mormons.
