Charlie was the 6th of 9 children born to Cicero Franklin Alston and Martha A. Messer.

As a young man, Charlie married and they had a child. Unfortunately both mother and child died in childbirth. This was something Charlie never talked about.

On June 9, 1907 Charlie married Alice Lucinda Deuson Adair, a young widow with a 4 year old daughter, Elsie Marie. Elsie was never formally adopted but became in fact Charlie's daughter and was raised along with their other 5 children.

Charlie was a good businessman and family was important to him. At some point he helped most of his bothers and their families survive The Depression.

Rest in peace Uncle Charlie!
