Alvin was indirectly listed in the company roster in William Chipman's notebook under his sister Jane Cherry.
More research is needed concerning Alvin's date of birth as no primary sources have been located at this time and secondary and indirect sources are inconsistent. A possible entry for Alvin in "England and Wales, Civil Registration Birth Index, 1837-1915," states that Alvin was born in 1853.
