Charles spent his entire life and was buried in Albion. By occupation he was a farmer. He became owner of his father's farm on which he was born. He lived a quiet uneventful life and was fairly prosperous. He was deeply interested in civic affairs but never sought public office. He developed a keen interest in natural science and through personal observation and study became well informed regarding the native birds and animals of his region. His principal recreation was derived from these studies and from small game hunting, a sport to which he was ardently attached.2

William Horace Alderman1

b. 6 April 1885
     William Horace Alderman was born on 6 April 1885 at Albion, Orleans Co., NY.1 He was the son of Charles Chester Alderman and Elvira Ann Root.1 William Horace Alderman married Margaret Chamberlayne, daughter of Rev. D. O. Chamberlayne and Nettie Baldwin, on 23 September 1908.1

Dr. Alderman graduated from Cornell University, took a special course at Yale and later became Chief of the Department of Horticulture, University of Minnesota.

Without dates or other definite information it is difficult to properly connect the above with the foregoing families, but the similarity of names leaves little doubt in our minds that they were intended for the same. In the Composium of American Genealogy, Vol. V, page 272, we find that one Milo Alderman was born in 1801 at Colebrook in Litchfield County, Conn., and in 1821, the family, which consisted of the parents and six sons, moved to Prattstown, now Prattsburgh, in Steuben County, N.Y., and that Milo died in 1885. In 1824 he married Polly Sprague Howe of Prattsburgh. We feel confident that this Milo was a brother of Zardius, both of whom were baptized in East Granby, Conn., in 1803.2
