Notes for Charles Alvah Burrell:

Charles Alvah Burrell gets lost in the profusion of Charles Burrells. He may have married Laura A and farmed in St. Louisville, Licking, Ohio. His daughter may be Elizabeth (1925--). He may have been a Civil War Soldier and living in Michigan in 1894. There is a Charles A Burrell who rose from clerk to bookkeeper to president and treasurer of The Burrell & Fowler Company in Cleveland.
