Biographical Note

Both originally from Lithuania, Solomon Brown Alch (1880-1953) and Anna Levine (1881-1948) met in Manchester, England, and were married in 1901. Two of their thirteen children were born in Manchester. The Alch family immigrated to the United States in 1904 and had eleven more children. The family lived in Boston, Massachusetts, for several years and settled in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1913. Their tenth child, Jerome Alch, moved to Charleston, South Carolina, with his wife Gladys during the 1990s.
