Alexander Falconer © Cheyenne Star 28 Aug 1913 Submitted by: Wanda Purcell
Alexander Falconer, eldest son of Peter and Margaret Cuminer Falconer, was born in the Parish of Nigg in county Vincardine, the twenty-fifth day of June in 1859.
After receiving his diploma from King's college he entered at the age of sixteen the offices of the North of Scotland Banking Company at Aberdeen where he remained for seven years, working theough the branch offices up to Chief Clerkship in his department at the head offices. His employers regarded him as thoroughly trustworthy, accurate, diligent and obliging and recommended him highly to the Bank officials in Montreal where he next took a position with the Bank of British North America.
Before leaving Scotland, he received a Certificate of Honor from the Bankers Institute on taking a written examination on the Theory of Credit and Banking, an honor not lightly given in that conservative country.
He also left in full Communion with the Church of Scotland, being a member of old Machar Church.
During the next years he traveled widely working in various banks; thus gaining an extended knowledge of the financial world and acquiring a culture not otherwise obtained in the winter of 1906-07, he came to Cheyenne on a visit to his brother and family.
Soon after he associated himself with the Cheyenne State Bank, remaining with this institution until his last illness. He proved himself a responsible and efficient assistant, gaining the esteem and confidence of all with whom he came in contact.
In ill health for more than a year, he bore his suffering with fortitude and performed his duties faithfully and uncomplainingly till within a few weeks of his death.
He made a great many friends while here who sorrow for his loss and who heartily sympathize with the bereaved relatives. -- A Friend.
