James A. Alger, born 1920/1921

Posted: 29 Jan 2003 12:15AM GMT
Looking for information on James A. Alger, born in 1920 or 1921, probably in Kaukauna or Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Hilma (Peterson) and John (aka Jack) Alger. John and Hilma were living in Washington, DC with her sister Jennie Peterson at the time of the 1920 census. James A. Alger, age 8, was living with his grandmother, Lottie Peterson and uncle, Alfred M. Peterson on a farm in Prairie Lake Township, Barron County, Wisconsin at the time of the 1930 census. John Alger and Hilma separated about the time of James' birth and later divorced. John is dead and no information has been found regarding Hilma or her son, James, since the 1930 census.

Did you ever find any other information after 1930?

James Alger graduated from Chetek High School in 1939 (or at least was in the Chetek Yearbook pictures in the class of 1939). He is also listed in the Chetek High Alumni Directory in 1952 with the address of 542 SW 12th Ave, Miami, FL; also in the 1967 Chetek High Alumni Directory with the address of 100 Teresa Lane, Merritt Island, FL.

I have not found him in 1940, or anywhere else until the SSDI-
