  • Notes 
    • He died near Palmira not necessarily in.

      BIRTH: VARIANT DATE: 1799

      DEATH: "There has also been some discrepancy in the date of Alvin's death. For oover one hundred years this date was given as November 19, 1824. This, however, was found by Willard Bean to be an error. Some years ago, while residing on the Smith farm, he went through some old Palmyra newspapers, and there found in the Wayne Sentinel, under date of September 25, 1824, a statement that they had unearthed Alvin's body and found it undisturbed. This proved that Alvin's death was in 1823 not 1824.
