General Alger's Presidential Prospects

His prospects in 1888 must have dimmed since there was no President Alger.   Russell A. Alger married a Squier descendant.  Mrs. Alger's mother was Huldana (Squier) Henry.

An 1888 article in a Roscommon County, Michigan, newspaper

"He is a man, as Whitelaw Reid said, 'self-made, able clear-headed, and a gallant soldier."'
