Alfred Beck Guion

This is one of the few pictures that I have of Alfred Beck Guion, known as “Alfie” to his siblings, probably taken only a few years before he died in 1899 at the age of 45. Grandpa was only 14 when his father died and he felt that he became the “Man of the House” at that time, with all the responsibilities that entailed, caring for his Mother and sister.

  1. What a dramatic profile he had!

      Carol – I agree. I wish I had lots of pictures of him. I’ve been told by a third-cousin that he looks quite a bit like his sister. I can’t wait to see pictures of her.

    Alfie was quite the looker!

      Mom – About a year ago I discovered through this blog, descendants of Alfie’s sister, Elizabeth. Since all four daughters had moved to the San Francisco area and Alfie went to New York, the family lost track of him and the California Guion’s had no idea what became of Alfie. We are having such a great time making connections and will be publishing a book which we hope will include information on all of the children of Elijah and Clara Maria de los Delores Marina de Beck Guion. It is truly a labor of love.

    So young–how sad.
