    Carl Wilhelm ALVE (1849-1910)


    The late Mr Carl William Alve, whose death at Rangitane was announced in yesterday's issue of the "Standard", was born in the Rhine Province, Germany, in 1849 and came to New Zealand in the ship Gutenberg in 1875. After residing in the Featherston district four or five years he took up land at Eketahuna, and endured the hardships incidental to the early period of settling that district. After sixteen years farming - principally dairying - in the Forty Mile Bush, he went back to Featherston, but did not stay there long, as he acquired the farm at Rangitane, near Palmerston, where he has resided ever since. Mr Alve made friends wherever he settled, and was highly respected by all who knew him. Deceased leaves a wife and family of ten children, most of whom are grown up, three of the daughters being married, and there are a number of grandchildren. The funeral takes place to-morrow.

    From the Manawatu Standard, Palmerston North, on 23 September 1910.

    Although the Obituary indicated that the death occurred at Rangitane, the death notice gave the place of death as Palmerston North.
