Pictured are Margaret Fyfe and Ernest Boettcher tying the knot.
The Boettchers were one of the first three families who settled in Alder, all within about six months of each other. Their property was located about 2 miles east of the Alder town site.
Earnest Boettcher worked in the woods, but was also one of the first preachers at Alder Presbyterian Church. He and Margaret (Peggy) went on to have three children: Kathleen Boettcher Smith, Elsie Boettcher Van Eaton, and William Boettcher. (Old Alder)
